Our mind turned to Christmas stockings, especially when we saw this perfect-oh-so-perfect stocking filler at Leftovers at Brixton Market. Delightfully nostalgic and oh so quaint, we loved this bricolage inspired by the vintage wares of this shop. Another gift we'll be putting in our stocking is a Don't Blow It Hanky by the Craftivist Collective that we found at Fabrication on Broadway Market. Christmas has also come to The New Craftsmen with a pop-up garage in London's busy Mayfair. They will be there until December 21 selling craftsmanship from the British Isles, including Mati Ventrillon's FairIlse knits (pictured).
