I don't often post about what I've been up to at the weekend, but on Saturday I had such a wonderful time in Hebden Bridge I just have to share.

Hebden Bridge is a lovely little town in West Yorkshire that seems to be a centre for arts and crafts and all things handmade and quirky. I have never come across so many amazing gift shops selling locally made products. It was so refreshing not to be seeing just the same mass produced items that you can find everywhere, and there was some really original work that I've not seen before. I even spotted quite a few names I recognise that I have seen on Folksy or Etsy.
This rather charming fox from Lush Designs did come home with me however and is looking fab in my dining room.

I shall definitely be heading back to Hebden Bridge again (soon I hope!) and I can recommend a visit if you've not been before. Try spotting as many Folksy and Etsy sellers as you can!
