Spirit of Christmas 2016

We had a brilliant day Spirit of Christmas Fair at Kensington Olympia last week and came away feeling very inspired (if a little exhausted from all the shopping!). It was great to see familiar favourite faces Davina Combe Jewellery and Wingfield Digby but also discover lots of amazing new brands that we’re really excited about.

Rosanna Lonsdale‘s stunning bespoke lamps have definitely made it onto our wish list! They are all carefully handmade in the UK and are places to be treasured forever. Each lamp is created through a meticulous process of painting and decorating glass vases from the inside, using the 18th century technique, Decalomania. You can probably guess which design caught our eye first…! Check out her full range here.

Finally, one of our favourite new discoveries was Rubies In The Rubble who make the most delicious relishes and preserves from food that is rejected from the supermarkets for simply not looking right (even though it still tastes delicious). Perfect presents for Christmas and you’ll be helping to tackle of food waste that we are facing – double thumbs up from us!
