Under new management

Times are a changing at the Hertfordshire Craft Collective where I have my vintage and handmade unit. Just a few weeks ago the leaseholder advised us that she was giving up the business and that HCC would be closing. Horrors!! Thankfully, at the 11th hour one of the unit holders stepped in (hurrah!) and took over the lease. 

It's such a lovely place to have a business at Battlers Green Farm and the new owner, who's taste in vintage I've always admired, is already making exciting changes.

The craft workshop area is having a makeover and a new craft programme is planned.

There's a great mix of vintage and handmade goods on sale too.

My own unit is brimming over with goodies, like these vintages suitcases

And I"ve been working at my stencilling skills on these vintage crates

It's a great time to be part of such a creative hub - don't forget to check us out if you're in this neck of the woods!


  1. how exciting! i wish i could come visit1 i wish there were more places like this where i live, i'm just itching to have a space somewhere!!

  2. Yes I know that itch well! It is exciting although it's tough to make it work financially in a recession. I'm planning a vintage fair in the autumn - I think it's about creating your own space.

  3. So glad your unit is safe..and I wish I lived near so I could come in and buy some of your goodies! :0)
