Well, we had a fantastic time at the 2019 Lollyrocket Christmas Shopping Event. Now in its 6th year, Lollyrocket founders Hayleigh & Michelle work tirelessly to bring together local makers for all of your festive gifting requirements. Looking around at our neighbours at the show, we can certainly say that we were chuffed to be in such good company.
It was a truly amazing turnout. Thank you to everyone who came along to support local businesses, and, of course, a very big thank you to the lovely ladies of Lollyrocket for putting together such a wonderful shopping experience.
Here's a round-up of some of our favourite sellers and products that we saw at the show:
Founders of the event itself & makers of high quality, soy wax candles that smell amazing.
Quirky and fun products. We particularly love their aromatherapy roller oils and bath noodles.
KNOT SEW SIMPLE
Beautiful macrame creations including plant hangers, wall decor, jewellery & incredibly cute rainbow key rings.
One for caffeine lovers. Artisan roasted coffee beans, spices and sugar spoons. Check out their amazing Christmas crackers!
DRAGONFLY GIFTS & CRAFTS
We originally came across their stall at Harborough Market. Full of gorgeous home decor pieces and beautiful gift items.
And not forgetting our friends at Bookishly who create whimsical, literary-themed items. Our team member Danielle was too busy buying up all of their wonderful stuff that she forgot to take a photograph of their stand (oops!). But here's a photo of one of her purchases from the day - she's chuffed.
Others that caught our eye were Wiry Words, Pearl & Grey, Pin Clothing, Nothing New & Anna Calvert Jewellery. With over 40 stalls, there was such a vast array of wonderful things for sale that we couldn't list them all.
But... do follow Lollyrocket on Facebook and Instagram to keep an eye out for details of 2020. This event is not to be missed.
