On a rainy Thursday morning Ruth popped to The West End Fair in Edinburgh to check out local talent from the craft-o-sphere, and discovered a whole host of fantastic creative products and chatted to some lovely designers.
A firm favourite was Carol Capaldi Crafts – a stall crammed full of quirky, kitsch gifts. Her vintage upcycled mosaics adorned everything from tile wall hangings to a guitar (which is firmly on the wishlist for a certain someone’s birthday present!) Check her out on Etsy!
Another fab company was Eclectic Shock. They were offering exquisite costume jewellery, from cuffs made with dismantled pocket watches, to pendants dangling with tiny jars of fairy dust. Other finds included gorgeous stained glass decorations, hand painted feathers, stunningly delicate fashion illustrations and The Edinburgh Bow Tie Company,
