Lovely Merchants Craft Fair in Mornington Crescent
The Lovely Merchants is a group of British designers & makers. They will be holding their second craft fair in Mornington Crescent on Sunday 12th. I met Jo Robinson from HAM when she held a pop-up shop last summer, and if it's all of such high quality then it sounds like a great event.
"Wares will include - valentine cards, prints, vintage, "Love"ly gifts, jewellery, preserves/oils and baked goods.
