Today we have been listening to the scooters driving to the Mersea Island rally from our garden, so I have popped a few more scooter pins in the Etsy Shop.

Also scooting along with them are,

Q & A

It's all smiles at Dottie HQ today, sending big thanks to Emma at Fawn and Squirrel for featuring me on her blog today!

Some of her questions were easier to answer than others - but I hope that they give you some idea of how and why Dottie Dollie came about

If you love Esty, you should follow Emma's blog, she will save you hours of searching for fab things....
I've also finished up some new brooches today, it's been quite a while since I finished any Dollie brooches, and this little batch are particularly jolly!

 Pastel Cutie Clowns

These (and a whole lot more) will be on my stall this Sunday
Can't wait to have a scout around this show!!!

Busy, Busy Week!

It's been a busy week at Dottie HQ.........
First there was the amazing Secret Vintage Fair, which was held in the former Grand Theatre in Colchester High Street. It is now a night club, but retains many of it's original Edwardian features.
We met some lovely people, heard some great music, and generally had a wonderful day!

Then it was back to work, preparing to move into my teeny new shop.....
We set up today, and a selection of my products will now be available 6 days a week at GO4 Market Café right in the centre of Colchester

Interior of GO4 Market Café
The café is located in the oldest church in Colchester, serves amazing food, coffee, cake and ice-cream and really is the place to go if you love the unusual!
It's packed with vintage & handmade goods, and has what I'm sure are the friendliest traders in Town!

Tomorrow I'll be having a pop up stall in the Market Café, then it will be time to update the long neglected Etsy Shop. I feel like I've done so many events this month that the virtual shop has suffered a little, but keep your eyes peeled next week, as I plan to make amends!
