Get ready… for #50FestiveThings

Black Cactus Co #50FestiveThings

Winter is on its way – but no fear, so is the Harbourside Christmas Market.

As Bristol readies itself for the holidays, here at the Harbourside we’re busy tying the last bows and fetching in the first snowflakes for 2017’s Harbourside Christmas Market. We’re very excited to bring back Bristol’s biggest alternative Christmas Market for yet another year, and we think you’ll like it, too. Expect a market full of Bristol’s independent spirit, with the best makers, creators, and street food geniuses on deck, live music throughout and mulled bevvies to keep your spirits high.

But just to give you a real sneak peek of what’s arriving in three short weeks, we’re launching #50FestiveThings: a preview of some of the brilliant, creative stalls you’ll find at the Market this year. Join us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get an idea of what you’ll see, and to start planning your Christmas presents well in advance.

And to kick us off: here’s Black Cactus Co. with their striking hand embroidered decorations, all 100% handmade and embroidered by Anna in her home studio. She’s got a sense of colour and vibrancy that we love, and the recurring cactus and desert themes are very welcome at this time of year, when we all need a little warming up. Check out her gorgeous work — everything from embroidery hoop art and cushions to felt magnets and greeting cards — at the Harbourside Christmas Market very, very soon.
