Upstairs at BS8 is a won­der­fully cre­ative, hand­made bou­tique on Bristol’s famous Park Street and I’m so pleased to say that you can now buy my knits there. It’s an artists co-operative so you’ll find work from six amaz­ingly tal­ented local mak­ers. Park Street is jam packed with bars, restau­rants and inde­pen­dent shops. If you’re ever vis­it­ing or in the area it’s worth a while to explore; and remem­ber to pop into BS8 and head straight up those stairs. As well as my knits, you’ll also find work from these very tal­ented peo­ple:1. Toviecor­rie - leather phone case | 2. Rebekah Leigh Mar­shall - singer print | 3. Pigeon Illus­tra­tions - fox greet­ing card | 4. Boo­dle Bou­tique - screen print sweat­shirt | 5. Gen­er­ated Mis­fits - flower print mes­sen­ger bag.

I’m going to be in the shop in the com­ing weeks, so do come in and say hello, if you’re local. And if not, grab a cup of tea and peruse these lovely shops online. Happy Sun­day, people!

    Awe­some! I had been think­ing recently of look­ing for some­one to share a stand with at BS8 and start sell­ing purse, baby clothes and pat­terns. Have you got your own or did you team up with some­one else?

      The space i’ve joined is a group of 6 mak­ers, shar­ing a sec­tion of the top floor. There’s also a jew­ellery shop and dress mak­ers up there too. You should come visit! :D
