Successful Christmas Shopping

Successful Christmas Shopping is all in the preparation. We need a large handbag so we can carry plenty of supplies for the day, we love our undyed, felted wool handbag for this, but we also want to be able to get at what's stored inside it quickly. There's nothing more frustrating than fishing around for keys, a ringing phone or your purse.

So, taking inspiration from the plethora of wonderful accessories we’ve seen at the fairs we've been popping up at lately we've selected a few of our favourite accessories to help make a day of Christmas shopping successful and stress free!


Our handmade Injiri pouches are perfect for make-up, cosmetics and all those on-the-go essentials you need when you’re out all day. Not only are they the perfect size for a handbag but their looped handles and tassels means you can find them easily in your handbag. £25 each they’re available from us at our Christmas Fairs.


Lists are essential when Christmas shopping. Write down who you need to buy for and check the names off as you buy their gifts. Another great tip when at Christmas Fairs is to note down the names of the stands you want to come back to - write down their name and stand number so you can find them easily again. This beautiful, small agapanthus notebook by Eloise Hall is the perfect handbag size.

Shopping is thirsty work. This water bottle by Dopper can be used to sip from on the go and when stopping for lunch take off the top and the cap cleverly converts into a cup. Practical, environmental, and very civilised.



When your hands are full of shopping bags the last thing you want to be doing is fumbling in your handbag for your keys. A brightly coloured, fur keyring will help enormously! We love this red one from Popski.

While most stands at Christmas fairs take card, a coin purse is a really useful place to keep all your receipts. This beaded one from Snap Store is perfect as you’ll be able to feel the beads in the bottom of your handbag, saving you rustling around for too long.

This KNOK case is the perfect accessory to ensure your phone is always easy to find! Knot the rope to the strap of your handbag and never lose it again.



This is our favourite handbag. It’s made from undyed felted wool, with leather handles and a pocket on the outside. Inside there is also a pocket for your phone and a very handy leather key hook. The bag is very light in weight and strong, making it perfect for shopping!
