I picked up a couple prints that I fell in love with, and I’m sure I will be adding more from this artist in the future. I got a warm welcome at the first stall walking into the square by Bernie, who said she wasn’t the woman behind the paintings and prints, but the artists wife.I really liked that she was there interacting with people and really supporting her husbands work. I like teams 🙂 The artists name is Seb Van B and you can peruse pictures of his paintings on their Facebook page or order tree prints from their Etsy shop. They had prints in varying sizes as well as greeting cards and original works, so I’m sure if you got in touch they would help you pick something out. I also came across a stand selling sweet little ceramic earings, brooches and ornaments of different shapes and animals called Upsydaisycraft run by Natalie. I have my eye on some teal vintage button looking earrings and think the ornaments were really pretty. It’s safe to say I will be more prepared for the next market and save some pennies.
This weekend we headed to Lincoln for a few hours Saturday to catch the artists market on the steep hill. There were’t loads of stalls, but the stalls had some quality artwork, jewelry and other crafts. I count that as a win and definitely worth a trip for anyone who is looking for some unique gifts or something to add to their own home. The market is held on the first Saturday of every month, but I’m not sure about winter dates, so best check ahead of time if you’re making a special trip.
If you know of any nice artists markets, please share the locations and when they are!
