The other day I was walking through Bury St Edmunds and I came across The Handmade Shop and Gallery. Tucked between gift shops and florists, this wonderful little gallery could outshine those in London.
Whilst there, I met the lovely lady from Red Sparrow Crochet who, whist manning the tills, was also creating some Christmas Tree bunting from green yarn. She explained to me that the shop was created to showcase local artists who take it in turns to run the shop and sell each others work.
Over the next few weeks I am going to take a look at some of the artists and share with you their work and to start things off I thought I would show you the Red Sparrow Crocheted bra that is proudly on display in their window.
This bra is there to highlight that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Red Sparrow have been making some wonderful pink tea cosies that you can purchase through the shop. For every one sold, they will be donating 35% to Breakthrough Breast Cancer to help them with the fight.
At VIP Balloons we love art and design in whatever form and each Monday we will post ideas and examples that we have found and like. Often we use these pieces to inspire us with our creations. If you would like us to create some balloon art or decor based on something you have seen, contact us and we will work with you to come up with ideas
