Following the success of the Christmas craft fairs, Love Barnet returns to the Bentley Showroom on Sunday for an afternoon of shopping, magic and music.
As you’d expect with Love Barnet, the focus is on high-quality crafted items with many one-off pieces (and some High Living favourites). Mothers’ Day is coming up on March 26th, so it’s perfectly timed. Here’s a run down of what to expect.
Laura Felicity Design
Laura was involved with 89, Love Barnet’s very first pop up shop and she designs and creates her own wallpaper, lampshades and home accessories. Laura also offers a bespoke design service.
Enthusiastic owner Anita sells cool and quirky items for around the home from tea towels to plant holders and bags to stationery. We at High Living love the eye-catching Scandinavian style (see picture).
Just the Bloke
Gary Chalkey makes all his own industrial style lamps using copper piping. These individual lamps apparently went down a storm in December so this time get there early as they’re in limited supply.
Not only does she run a cafe and catering business but Reni creates fantastic cakes, delicious salad dressing, hand-made chocolate and sweet gifts.
Owner Dee lives locally and creates everything for the pampered pooch from wraps and blankets to stylish neck scarves, all keeping your hound happy.
These health giving buckwheat hull pillows are designed to offer considerable health benefits. The buckwheat hull fill conforms perfectly to the unique shape of your head and neck unlike most pillows. Now available online and soon in selected stores.
Hello Dolly Vintage
Lynne Buchan sells her own style of hand-made make up bags and jewellery finds.
Owner Louise has been selling stylish fur and fashion products for years. Treat yourself to some gorgeous gloves or a warm fur wrap.
Angela is another local designer creating individually crafted angels for your shelf or mantelpiece. Each piece is hand-made and collectible.
The Button Princess
Original jewellery from Emma-Louise using sterling silver accented with freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones.
Original vintage curiosities and collectibles, with some particularly fine Art Nouveau examples. Brooches are a speciality.
Owner Giovanna Consigli advocates using 100 percent pure argon oil and products for the face. She also sells artisan organic soaps and a range for men.
Julie Eve Designs
Julie’s distinctive work is loved locally (especially here at High Living). She creates stylish cushions, throws and much more, along with special commissions.
The newest member of the team, Sarita Takhar Jones, owner of Miilk, will be bringing items including hand-made by her to the event. Her range will include t-shirts, tooth fairy bags and photo frames.
There’ll be a fundraising raffle with the chance to win prizes donated by Bentley, The Present, Odette Beauty, Fashion and Wine and other local businesses. Jo Collins, co-founder of the Chickenshed, will be providing live music and Gary Tickle will be holding magic shows from 1.30pm. Face painting for kids will also be available for a small charge.
