Etsy Sellers Craft Fair At Custard Factory, Birmingham

Christmas, birthdays, special occasions and moments of “just because” are opportunities to give a gift to someone you care about. There’s something very personal and meaningful about a handmade gift that you took the time to pick especially for the ones you love.  Give the people in your life that extra special feeling with one of these 100’s of handmade gift ideas at IDEAs Birmingham at collection of handmade items from local artisans.
I’ve always been a fan of handmade items and a few years ago I used to make and sell some handmade items in my toy shop.  We used to make hand-painted children’s jigsaw names.  Having made handmade items, I realise how time consuming it can be and because of this I appreciate hand made gifts much more.  I am a huge fan of Etsy and love that I can get the unusual as well as personalised gifts. IDEAs stands for Independent Designer Events for Artists & Shoppers in Birmingham and the surrounding area.  

I’m really looking forward to visiting the event which is held at the Custard factory in Digbeth.  The Custard Factory is based in Birmingham’s creative Quarter and is situated in the redevloped Bird’s Custard factory and is part of a thriving working community of creative & digital businesses, independent shops and cafes and bars.  The two day fair will be show casing a number of local artisan Etsy sellers, selling handmade, supplies or vintage gifts.

There’s something here for every occasion and season, not to mention ideas for everyone in your life at the Custard Factory, Digbeth, Birmingham 1 and 2 December.  The fair is open 12pm to 8pm on Friday 1st and 11am to 5pm on Saturday 2nd December.  Entry is Free.

    Handmade items or crafts are one of the best gifts one can give to a loved one especially at a period of Xmas where love is all we celebrates. Giving out handmade items is not the problem but how appealing or beautiful is it to the eyes of the receiver goes a long way to appreciate your work done.
    Am glad you have such a great talents. You need to keep it up and keep promoting it, one day this art work of yours will go internationally.
