10 minutes on the Couch with the founder of the Crafty Fox pop up market….

This is a really obvious question, but why the name Crafty Fox?
We were banding around a few names and different variations of names. We live in Brixton, Brixton has a lot of foxes, it’s a craft market and “Crafty Fox” stuck.
What made you create the Craft Fox Market?
I make jewellery and I started to look for Christmas markets back in September, but it was too late, most fairs were booked or too expensive and not in my price range. So, I decided to create my own fair, I have experience in events management and I did think it was going to be a lot easier than it has been, but so far it’s been fun and hopefully the fair is going to be great.
Why did you choose south London for the fair?
I live in Brixton, but I usually have to travel to east and north London for anything Arts & Crafts. There’s a lot of talented people in south London and it’s crazy that there isn’t more activity down here.
Tell us more about the market, how many stall holders will there be on the day?
There’ll be 25 stalls on the day, ranging from home ware to clothing and Jewellery to cakes. The full list can be found at the Crafty Fox blog; List of the Crafty Fox stall holders and we are also hoping to offer crafty workshops and we’ll be accepting the Brixton pound.
Etsy are your sponsor, what a find, how did you manage that that?

I sell my ‘Galavant’ Jewellery on the Etsy website, they’re an American website who is growing quickly in the UK, when I approached them, and they accepted and have been really supportive of the market.

Describe the market in 3 words?
Exciting, fun & unique.

The Crafty Fox market is taking place on Saturday 11th December 11-6pm at the Dog Star in Brixton. Check out the dapper Crafty Fox blog for more details.
