I began Reetsweet as a blog in Nov 2009 after working as a personal shopper, I had nothing but a love for handmade crafts and an enthusiasm for bringing it to the high street and so in Nov 2010 I started these events. For too long handmade has had a dusty, fuddy duddy reputation but at Reetsweet we aim to shake that image off and bring you something extraordinary.
For five years we have been putting on modern and fashionable craft fairs and in 2015 we are back with a bang and a new look by our very talented designer Steph Baxter.
In these lean times supporting handmade is important – it supports makers to start their businesses, helps the arts community come together, and keeps retail alive in these tough times. So many designers start out at arts markets…
By continuing to handpick only the very best contemporary and fashionable crafts made to the highest quality you will find nothing else like it. Our mission is to promote the wealth of craft talent that has come to the fore in the last few years online, and instead allow you to shop their work in person – keeping things local!
You will find art for your home, jewellery, accessories and oddities – take a look through our gallery. We keep all of our events free to attend and will endeavour to always do so!
See you again soon and thanks for supporting Reetsweet!
