I Make Fun Stuff Pup-Up Shop: Staff Picks

The pop-up shop has now been open for 5 weeks and we have been really busy promoting it, and the work we sell, a lot of the time using social media.

One of the ways we have been showcasing products is by each staff member picking their own "Staff Pick" when they are working in the shop. We then display it on the table as people come in so it is easy for them to find when they visit.

I thought i'd show you some of the fabulous work that has been chosen as Staff Picks over the last 5 weeks. 

This lightening bolt knitted purse is by Bob & John Knitwear and is just £16. These are contemporary and quirky, just how we like our knitting!

These fabulous card packs are made by Katrine Macklin. They are one off collaged cards with original illustrations screen printed over the top, each one is different (obviously) so you'll have yourself a unique piece of art as well as a card to give to a friend. Just £5 each!

This Orford Ness Lighthouse print is made from an original painting by Rebecca Pymar. Mounted and ready for your to frame for just £18. We also do this image as a card too, a bargain, and a mini artwork at just £2. All of Rebecca's work that we stock depicts places, attractions and resorts local to us in Suffolk, that's why it's so popular!

This handmade pouch by Kellee Rich is painted be hand, it's an original illustration and one of a kind. So what more could you want? This one is currently in our Maritime Weekend themed window. There are Maritime themed things going on in Ipswich all weekend which is part of the Celebrate Ipswich Festival.

More Staff Picks to come in the future!
