Unique Boutique @ Exeter Food and Drink Festival

I’ll be in the Unique Boutique Craft Marquee at this event, come along and say hi, get your hands on some fabulous locally made crafts, and not forgetting, since this is a food and drink festival, eat and drink tasty things from Southwest producers!

10 am til 6pm Friday and Saturday, 10am til 5pm on Sunday
26th, 27th and 28th April 2013

Unique Boutique is all about the makers and artists of Devon. Everything on sale has been made or up-cycled right here in this beautiful corner of Britain. Some people do this as a way to make a living, others do this as a way of living. Either way, the quality is excellent and the range of skills and innovative ideas is inspiring. Find handmade cards, textiles, jewellery, and accessories to die for. These markets aim to demonstrate the talent we have living amongst us, and to give people the opportunity to purchase something Not-the–High-Street, but something quite unique.
