Watch out for our next spectacular event, hosted at the Full Moon on the 27th November and the 11th of December - its the Fabulous Festive Markets!

Tuesday, 29 November 2011

Bristol's best kept secret! The best handmade market of local artisans that Bristol has to offer... indoors, at the perfect venue. With a bar! It's the Fabulous Travelling Bagfolk, a local & independent market which focuses on quality over quantity... and this time, its festive and at The Full Moon on Stokes Croft, in the Attic Bar - just inside the courtyard of The Full Moon to the right as you walk through the vaulted iron gateway. It's a great venue to be hosting the market in, cosy and stylish, and convenient to so many places in Bristol from St Pauls and Broadmead to Montpelier and St Werburgs. And did I mention it's got a bar! Not only that, in fact, but it's got a German Christmas Gluhwein bar selling sausages and hot mulled wine and cider outside for the season.

Inside you can find a large, carefully curated selection of the best in Bristol handmade design, including clothing ranges, art & photography, illustration, screenprints & framed prints, wool felt & handspun yarn, stained glass, pottery, sculpture, dance hula hoops for adults and children, fantastically surreal costume, jewellery including steampunk, silversmith, copper, fibre art & felted flowers, hand designed cards, crafted lamps, knitwear, chutney, ArtWear scarves and hats, quilted bags, patchwork and a whole lot more. Everything is meticulously and lovingly crafted by independent and local artists and artisans - nothing but the very best in each discipline is showcased. Plus, many of the artists and crafters demonstrate their crafts throughout the day on their individual stalls. So you can see 'live' drop spindle, crochet and silversmithing on an anvil, besides other things. Many of the stallholders also offer classes and workshops in their particular craft, so if you have always had a burning desire to learn felt making or stained glass, this is a great opportunity for you.

Walk in through the gateway all decorated with bunting and welcoming signs, across the courtyard and through the triangular doorway of the Attic... and you can tell something special is happening. The atmosphere is alive and vibrant. As you step inside the warm lamplight welcomes you in, the music rolls over you, and the glitter of treasure catches your eye. What a vast assortment of wonder! This is a market like no other. It's got edge. It's beautiful. Even the stallholders look fabulous - well, after all, they are the Bagfolk. 

So, don't miss out on your last chance to catch the final market of the year for the Bagfolk. You will certainly be able to find exclusive, one of a kind and moreover ethical gifts. You will be entertained all day with wine and great music, including live loop performance from Hawthorn and our in house vinyl DJ playing bouncy classics to shop to (NO CAROLS!!). Find us on the 11th of December from 12- 6pm.
