sweeeeet stuffs

This is my belated BrisStyle Market purchases post. I've been wanting to share some of the wonderful things I bought from my fellow BrisStyle team members, so here they are. Some being little gifts, and some being for me. There was so much more that I wanted to take home but unfortunately my budget wouldn't allow it. Thankfully there will be another market on 5th December. And I aim to be much more cashed up by then!

Firstly I wanted to thank the ever so lovely Miriam from Bubbachenille for these gorgeous goodies that I won on her recent 100th blog post celebration giveaway. Miriam kindly brought them along to the market and gave them to me as soon as I arrived. Already my day was off to a super good start! Thanks Miriam xo


Handmade gift tags, a beautiful notebook and the cutest and most cuddly little heat bag I've ever seen!


Cute as buttons...um...Buttons by Kitty Boo Boo, Handmade Book by Jellygnite (I have quite a collection of Ali's books now), Vintage Sheep/Duck Brooch by Ruby2GoGo and Danger Bunny Notebook by Scampsville


Hand-stitched Brooch by Edward and Lilly, Gift Card (which I'm thinking of framing) by Hot Toffee, Small Gift Card Set by Flight Industries and a Ninja (for my ninja obsessed little nephew) by Wicked Child Designs


This is the bag I took along with me. The talented sister duo Bec and Jade from Beckybean had a range of their coffee bags available at the market and as I'd already bought the one above prior to the market I had to restrain myself from buying another. The girls source original coffee bean sacks and transform them into very cool market totes. The coffee pictured above didn't come with the bag. Here is where I buy my beans.

A fun day was had by all at the market. I was one of the helpers on the BrisStyle promo table and I enjoyed hanging out with Benita, Trish and Amanda. Just for the record Amanda, I didn't really steal your cupcake.

Nice purchases and giveaway prize. I didn't see any of those cute ninjas at the market. Must check out that shop now! So will you have a stall at the next market Harriet? Hope you will :)

I was expecting to see pictures of the coffee & chocolate fair you mentioned in your last post. Good thing you shared that coffee bag photo to satisfy my caffeine cravings! That bag is so cool! I really do need to explore my local markets.

I bet your nephew will love his ninja toy!!! What is it with nephews and ninja obsessions anyway? My nephew is exactly the same. It's all robots & ninjas!

Sarah said...

You won goodies recently too?!!! See I got to hang out with you & MK even more so that some luck will rub off on me!

Hey Harriet said...

Simone ~ Stall? Not sure. Maybe :)

Hope you snag yourself a cute ninja! If Teneale doesn't currently have any in her shop just send her a convo letting her know you'd like one. Thanks for dropping by!

I love a good shop too! It IS theraputic I'm sure of it!! You got some real goodies here Tracy - I wish I could have magically materialised there at the market for a couple of hours!! P.S. Just my luck - your gorgeous gorgeous photos arrived this morning in my PO Box!! ( They are stunning by the way!!!) So sorry about all that! Blog post to follow! I'll hang onto the second and the double and cook up an ingenious plan for them!! Hope you're having a lovely week! XX

Victoria said...

You did good my dear! Lovely, cute and fun items. That coffee tote of yours is perfection!

M.Kate said...

I love such places..though I hardly come across such over here, I think I'll break my piggy bank buying way too many stuff - needed or not. You sure had lots of fun..and I am wishing I could be there. Big congrats on winning the giveaway...you lucky duck you!! It's Wednesday...counting down to weekend woopee :P

Andria from Shagpile said...

Well i was going to say 'those buttons are cute as buttons' but you pretty much beat me to it. Love the brooch as well. So many beautiful things. Lucky you! :)

Ali said...

Wow! you sure did do some shopping Tracy!! I'm very envious, didn't seem to be much time for my shopping ;)
I especially love Sally's cards - I saw them and loved them, but in the craziness of the day, never got back to her stall :(

ARTISANNE said...

Ooooh shopping!!!! You shop well :0)

Tizzalicious said...

There's too much cuteness in this post! I love it all!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

That IS some sweeeet stuff:} Hot Toffee's little girl is awfully quirky and cute. And I love Ali's little book. And the heat bag (lucky girl!) and the buttons and brooch and...everything is soooo cute!!
I'm glad you had such a fun day. Wish I had been there to enjoy it with you all:D

Cat Ludwig Studio said...

So many amazing purchases. I don't know how you will give any of them away! I would want to keep them all:)

Sam said...

Hey Tracy (as opposed to Hey Harriet!) I've tagged you, if you feel so inclined! :)

Hot Fudge said...

Love your shopping treasures, Tracy. Just as well you already had your coffee bean bag, because I snaffled up one on the day as a gift for my daughter and I would have hated to have to fight you off for it!

Rosebud Collection said...

What a nice time you had and some fine purchases too..Coffee bag is really cute..nothing like a good cup of coffee..
Have a good week.

Shannon said...

A good thing I couldn't make it to this market. If I had, I would have spent a fortune. these are the kind of thing I just love and can't resist.

Anyways, its great to see so many wonderful creations of creative people.

Btw, ur avatar is funny, i used to like seagulls, coz 'the sea' and they are kindof graceful and stuff, lately i find them really annoying and abit aggro, ur avatar reminds me why i used to like them, coz they can be so cheeky and funny!;)
