More Lilac Lovlies

Hello once again,

It is glorious and sunny once again, here in Devon; so I thought I'd post this for you before popping outside and soaking up a few of those rays.

 I'd like to introduce you to a few more of my Lilac Lovlies.
Remember CRAFTfest runs from the 9th to 16th June, and all these lovely people will be there.

The Long Collection

The main products you will find in my shop are jewellery and cards, as these are my favourite things to make.
I started making jewellery around ten years ago and have been hooked ever since. I try to create items that are individual but also in-keeping with the latest styles, so you'll always find new products popping up.
As a full time Visual Merchandiser I also love to make other extraordinary things, including chandelier shades, jewellery stands and keepsake boxes. So keep your eyes open for my one-off exclusive buys!
I am currently expanding into wedding invitations, bridesmaid jewellery and wedding accessories, so please don't hesitate to contact me for any bespoke items.

Madam Mod Makes

Madam Mod Makes handmade jewellery using recycled and refashioned materials married with resin, precious metals & gemstones. Creations are inspired by Vintage British Design & Quirky British Culture, with a big Nod to the ever fashionable Mod & Scooter Scene.

Each piece of jewellery is totally unique with a quirky edge, made to be worn by the individual in you. Madam Mod Makes loves to create Bespoke items to complement a theme or event. If you would like me to create something old, something new, something unique made just for you, get in touch.

And I've got a range of handmade goodies including bunting, wonky owls and coffee corsets for people who don't have time to make it themselves.

Each piece is lovingly created by hand to make truly unique and individual pieces a reflection of the people who buy my jewellery.

Serenity Potions

I have recently completed my training in Aromatherapy and I'm completing my crystal healing course. I was looking for away to use these in day to day life. I want to share this uplifting therapy with everyone.

I use 100% cotton fabric and threads to create these flowers, to enhance their natural healing qualities. All the flowers are handmade, and oils blended by myself. I source the oils from environmentally friendly sources and ensure they are not diluted or extended with any synthetics.

Lilac Group June CRAFTfest


and welcome back to the latest CRAFTfest, and members of my Lilac Group, for this CRAFTfest.
I have lots of lovely stall holders once again, and would like to introduce you to the first of them.

CRAFTfest will take place from 9th to 16th June, when all stalls will be live for sales, and there will be a massive selection with over 150 stalls to chose from.

I will be doing more posts as the CRAFTfest approaches, so do follow me and watch out for more lovely stalls and goodies, as time goes on.

So firstly for today:

Friday's Child

Friday’s Child is Wendy and Eileen and we specialise in super simple craft kits, in fact, we believe we are the first people to provide a No-Sew Applique Bag Kit. We know that lots of people have creative urges but just don't know where to start. So we have decided to do all of the hard work, all you need to do is add a bit of creative magic!

Each kit includes a canvas bag, fabric motifs, brown paper (boring but essential) and simple instructions, all wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a lovely reusable gift box. If you have an iron and at least 30 minutes you can create a beautiful, bespoke bag.

We use vintage and contemporary fabrics to make our motifs, this keeps our kits and your bags fresh and unique. Trust us, we always make sure the patterns and colours go together.


MysticDNA loves jewellery and accessories. At the moment we are mostly focused on knitted items such as shawls, hats and even chain necklaces! Being slightly whimsical in nature, we don't so much as follow a path, but meander aimlessly and pausing occasionally to look under stones... as such our product range changes in accordance to what we find there, but we're always happy to do our best to accommodate people's needs....

Pauline's Passions

Hi my name is pauline and I make handmade cards for all occasions. I also make wedding stationary and party invitations,Each card is unique and all my cards can be personalised .
I also make gift boxes,bags,favour boxes,stationary sets, note books and other gifts.

I run a bespole srevice and am happy to make cards to order for any occasion,theme etc.

Kozmic Dreams

Welcome to Kozmic Dreams!

I have been knitting and crocheting for over 25 years and have been selling at local craft fairs and shops for some time.

I make knitted and crocheted owls, cats, mug cosies, bags and other yarn-based bits and pieces.

I love making all of the items in my stall but I'm especially hooked on making knitted owls ever since I came up with the first one - I hope you see one you like! Twit-Twoo.

Random Buttons

Welcome into the world of Random Button. We’re dedicated to creating a special piece of handmade loveliness for you and your home that we hope will stay with you for a lifetime.

We mix together our passion for all things vintage and our love of craft with a slice or two of cake and a pinch of romance to create a unique collection of handcrafted items.

From hand and machine knitted home interior pieces (cushions, throws etc.) and lavender scented decorations to teacup and saucer pin cushions and vintage ribbon and lace jewellery, all of which are 100% Handmade in Britain, we hope to provide you with a range of chic gifts for your friends, family or even just a little treat for yourself that adds character to not just your home but your life.

Oakwood Soaperie

Hi I'm Ceri, the owner and maker at Oakwood Soaperie. I'm a cat loving, photo taking, hand crafter based in the North East of England. I love making things especially soaps and natural cosmetics that feed your skin as well as clean it.
All of my products are handmade by me at home in small quality controlled batches. The majority of my products are 100% natural. I use a combination of natural extracts, cosmetic colours and high quality fragrance oils as well as pure essential oils, botanicals, clays, plant oils and butters to make all my products as well as lashings of pure, healing, Northumbrian Honey and Beeswax from our own bees.
We're here to help you look after your skin, will love you for it.

Starry Eyed Tiaras

My tiaras are all hand crafted, usually in my kitchen whilst the children are asleep. My designs are not traditional wedding tiara designs and I hope that this doesn't deter any princesses who come across my designs. My designs are all able to be tweeked to individual requirements regarding colour, type of bead etc as I want people to be excited about their purchase.
 I am rather a perfectionist so be assured that anything I make is to a high standard. The names of my designs are rather bizarre...I wanted to stay away from typical tiara names and instead decided on naming the creation in honour of what ever I was watching on tv or listening to as I worked and finished the tiara. Says alot about me I think :)
So to finish, my tiaras are an extension of my personality...high standards and a bit kooky!! ;)

I hope I have wetted your appetite, and that you'll be back soon to see what other lovely stall holders I have to show you. I will be posting regular blogs now; right up to when CRAFTfest begins.

Remember CRAFTfest goes live on 9th June 

Happy Shopping
