Norwich Lanes Fayre

Yesterdays fayre was a roaring success, the sun was shining (unbearably at some points as we had no shade all day!) and loads of people turned up for what was a great day of shopping and entertainment! Unfortunately I didn't get to see much of the fayre as I was on my stall most of the day, but what I did see looked lovely! It was pure Norwich at its independent best!
Here's my little corner of the lanes, looking a bit wind swept!

A little selection of my wares and displays.

I still have a bit of stock left over from the fair, which I will put up in my Folksy store this week with any luck. I also had a bit of interest in my bunting that was being used as display so I have decided to set up a custom bunting service, where you can choose colours, fabrics and length to fit your needs! So if you're interested in this service then send me an email with what sort of thing you're looking for and I will get back to you with some fabric options.
This is the stall with which I was sharing a space, the lovely ladies (and Will!) of Amity Vintage, who made an absolute killing on the day with all their lovely vintage treasures! It was so great to share a space with them and I can't wait to do more fairs together! They will be stocking their online store very soon and I will let you when they do!

Thanks you so much to all friends and family who turned up to support us and help out behind the stall and keep us company and thanks to Martin and Will who helped us a lot with the setting up and packing away aspects. Finally thank you to everyone else who came down and made the day such a success and for all the kind words and encouragement! I hope those of you who purchased from Polka.Button or took a card found your way here! Please keep checking back for updates, you can follow the blog in the right hand column and find my facebook page and contact details in the 'Contact Polka.Button' page at the top of this post!

Baby Booties

My mum knitted these booties for Polka.Button, which will be on sale tomorrow. I finished them off this morning with some polka dot buttons (naturally!) and tied them together with some pretty polka dot ribbon. I love the colours, very 'Polka.Button', and they are machine washable and go in the tumble dryer! Pretty and practical!
Now to finish off some of my pin cushions and aprons! See you tomorrow!

New stock

Wow 3 weeks is a long time with no blog! I've been so busy making more jewellery and sewing that the time has just flown by! Preparations are well underway for the Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre this Sunday, I've even got some tasty little things to share with you this morning before I chain myself to the sewing machine for 24 hours!
I finally got around to turning my polka dot buttons into pretty little earrings! The buttons measure 13mm and come in 14 different colours, all as lovely as the last! Each pair is £4 but if you come down to the fayre this Sunday you will find these little beauties on offer, 2 pairs for £6 while stocks last! Perfect if you cant decide which of the 14 colours to choose from! But if you can't make it on Sunday, any left over earrings will be up on my Folksy shop next week!

These two colours are my favorite as they match perfectly to my Polka.Button colours! Yum.

Introducing... Polka.Button's handmade buttons! I've made a small range off button packs using some truly scrumptious fabrics including some vintage, Cath Kidston and Liberty fabrics! Packs of 6 19mm buttons with metal backs and shanks only £5! Again, what I don't sell Sunday will be on Folksy next week!

Well I'd better get on with today's sewing! Hopefully see you Sunday!
