Where to Find Awesome Local Gifts This Holiday Season

Calling all Merseyside & Cheshire Craft Lovers!

After three holiday seasons selling my hand painted jute and tote bags. I have learned a thing or two about what you want and where you want it. I have planned, I am prepared, and I am pumped to provide you with as many awesome and unique bags to give as gifts this holiday season (oh, and maybe a cheeky one for yourself to carry all your gifts in 😉).

I have curated an awesome line up of local events. Some in the day, some in the evening, one up north, one down south and a few within my amazing little village.

These shows are packed full of crafty, custom, quality, and tasty items that are sure to impress your friends and family this season. So, although, I want you to come and purchase a Destination Jute bag, I also want you to fill it up with other local supplier’s goods. Love, live local and all that jazz.

Here is my line up:

But the excitement doesn’t stop there, oh, no…

I have set up a discount code on both my website and Etsy Shop so you can purchase your items online, then collect at a show!

This will ensure 3 things:

1. The bag & design you want will be there for you at the show (no more “do you have any more unicorn bags left?”)

2. You get free shipping

3. It will get you out of the house to GO TO THE SHOW – Let’s face it, how many of us intend to go to a local event, but then forget or just can’t be bothered on the day, then scramble buying thoughtless Amazon gifts at the last minute? Or is that just me? Anyway, if you commit to coming with a pick-up purchase chances are you will go, support local and have fun! Try it.

The discount code is: COLLECTINPERSON2017 (please note the fair you will be attending in the notes of your order)

I end with a a few photos and flyers from the events listed above. Please come. Make this a Christmas to remember!

This is me! Please come and say hello!

I am not sure if you feel it too, but this year there seems to be something special in the chilly air which makes me think, this year is going to be the best Christmas ever.
