Another vendor that will be attending London’s Craftacular is Rebecca Coffee’s Millinery.
Coffee is a Milliner from London. She has been making hats for almost 2 years, since she quit her office job to do something more creative.

Coffee uses a variety of different materials in her designs. Read More
