As you may or may not know I am from Birmingham, although I do a lot of fairs around the country and I love lots of the cities I have visited. I recently took the time to take in some of the sights of my home city.

I like spending time in places such as the Botanical Gardens which is such a lovely time to spend the day especially if the sun is shining. One of my other places to spend the day is just outside Birmingham in Stratford Upon Avon. I spent a lot of time there when I was at university as it was a great place to gather inspiration and to work. I particularly love the Butterfly Farm in Stratford and a pub called Cox's Yard. I was lucky enough to trade there last year with the team from Sutton Vintage and Arts Fair.

Another favourite of mine is The Custard Factory in Digbeth which is home to a number of fantastic independent retailers and business including The Frock On Vintage Studio a celeb favourite, GET A GRIP printing studio and The Vintage Salon to name a few.
