PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Keep the pound in Pompey.

As a local maker/crafter this is the time of year that sees you being uber productive. We are really lucky to have so many independent shops and craftspeople in Portsmouth so it seems fitting that we support them this Christmas. A massive big up to Southsea Boutique Market and Love Southsea Market for giving makers an outlet for selling!

I decided to venture down our very own Albert Road last week to spend time with three amazing businesses, Bonzo, Flo and Stan and Bored to find out about selling this Christmas. I took heaps of photos of beautiful stock and was welcomed warmly by all three. The personal touch you get when shopping local cant be beat. Here’s my personal picks…
