We can't wait to hear Sue's solo album - it's just being produced and finished in the studio and will be out soon!  And if anyone's not bought the latest Robots in Disguise album - you should it's great!

Pop Up Afflecks at Manchester Christmas Markets


Starting from tomorrow - Friday 25th November - Me&Yu will be available at Pop Up Afflecks
Pop Up Afflecks is a NEW EVENT designed to give you a taster of Afflecks right in the heart of Manchester's Christmas Markets. More like a  Pop Up Shop than a traditional Christmas Market, there are a variety of products on offer from Me&Yu, Hannah Makes Things, Clothing With A Conscience, Biggi Bagga, Beanies, Chocolate Ape and Pop Boutique.

Pop Up Afflecks is selling a cross section of products available in the whole of Afflecks - a huge selection of clothing, fashion and accessories as well as sweeties and unique gifts. With sales assistants from all your favourite Afflecks stalls (Angie will be there every day!!) to help you shop for all those awkward people to buy for! 

Why not enjoy the splendour of the Festive Christmas Markets whilst sipping a Gl├╝hwein or German Beer, or munching on some scrummy food before coming inside to see us (and get a little warmer too!)

We're situated just inside the Town Hall in the Foyer of the amazing Gothic building - you can't miss the huge clock tower. Look for the inflatable Santa - the entrance is just below his feet!

Opening Times:
Monday to Sunday 11am to 7pm (7 days a week)
Friday 25th November to Sunday 18th December

Super Duper Blackpool!

Yesterday we had our annual chance of trading in our home town. The Super Duper Fair was a lovely event held this year in the rather splendid newly redecorated Grand Vestibule of the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Here's some pictures:


Covering 2 rooms there was over 50 stalls of handmade products from fashion, vintage and accessories to cards, gifts, artworks and cake!



Our little stall had a selection of our current best-selling handprinted tees, and a rail of our new overdyed slouch tees and dresses with a few cosy sweatshirts too!


 

Just in time for Christmas we've hand-printed some new cards - and this year we've introduced quality sketchbooks with hand-printed covers - a perfect present for anyone that loves a doodle!

Above all it was a lovely social event - Angie's friend Lisa Wigham had a stall next door selling her original prints and etchings - here's a selection of pictures of her stall and some examples of her work:





We were amazed by the quality and variety of products throughout the fair - here's some of our other favourites:



Lovely hand-made ceramic things from floral rings to porcelain tea-light holders.
Lots of ceramic detail cards, christmas tree decorations and jewellery that stood out as being just a bit different with a nice quality.

Hand-made handbags and printed fabric badges with lots of detailling - cute retro styling!




Loula Belle at Home made the cutest pinny's, baking and making sets.



T-World T-shirt Film

The people over at T-World magazine in Sydney have made this film about t-shirts, it's quite good (although I do sometimes cringe when people talk too much about the whole aesthetic/cultural meaning of t's), anyway watch it it's good!!!
