Get ready Ealing!
On the 1st of December, your local Ealing Artisan market will be supporting the national campaign, Small Business Saturday, with a whole host of small independents for you to shop from. Find all the gifts you need, whilst supporting smaller, local brands. It all makes such a difference to shop this way, and we’re proud to be supporting some of our West London artisans and makers.
To give you a little idea of what’s instore, we’ve put together a Christmas gift guide to take some of the pressure off.
See you there?
Does he love a pint or two? A frequent pub dweller? Ealing based illustrator/designer Charlotte Berridge has just the thing. Her unique prints pay homage to West London, her ‘Pubs’ series would make a great feature in his kitchen or living room.
Charlotte covers Ealing, Chiswick, Richmond, Kew, Acton, Hanwell and Brentford.
Or does he fancy himself to be quite the chef? Visit Feudo San Lorenzo for some incredible, high quality olive oils, perfect to jazz up even the simplest of meals. Their chemical free olive trees are grown in the Sicilian countryside, and, once oils, are blended with the finest flavours; chilli, lemon, rosemary and truffle, as well as the original olive oil itself.
*Top tip* - Drizzle some rosemary oil on your roast potatoes for a knock out Christmas lunch!
Ladies love a little luxury from time to time, and Jennifer Cattlin knows just how to add a little glamour to any evening look. She makes incredible fascinators that are an art piece in their own right. Perfect for Ascot, weddings and so much more.
Or if you fancy getting something a little smaller, but no less luxury, pop by Ali & for handmade jewellery. Sterling silver, gemstones and pearls all make an appearance here, so you’re sure to find a gift she’ll love.
The smell of coffee in the morning, in our opinion, just cannot be beaten. So why not gift a bag of delicious, roasted coffee to a friend or couple? Curious Roo, born from Edwin and Magda whilst they lived in Uganda, will be on hand for just that. (p.s. they’ll be serving hot, steaming cups, too!)
Or go and see Aimee Hocking, her textiles and photography will brighten up anyone’s home. She’s based in West London and even her cushions are filled with 100% British wool.
Lastly, the creative collaboration Wassail and Balter will be setting up shop offering some of their incredible art works, illustrations and small gifts. We love the ‘Love and Lust’ series for a romantic and humorous gift.
For the little ones.
Don’t worry, there’s always something to keep the little ones occupied. Make It Ealing will be hosting a craft area on the day, so you can let them explore their creativity whilst decorating some Christmas cards and festive goodies! If you need any presents for younger girls, Rebeca Buttons will be there with some seriously cute earrings, too.
Market times; 11am-4pm
