Going to the BUST Christmas Craftacular in London this weekend? Sign up to the raffle; the prizes are awesome!

by Victoria Woodcock

The BUST London Craftacular is taking over The Islington Metal Works this Sunday and we’ve thrown one heck of a raffle into the mix. Head upstairs to the BUST stall and just pop your email on our list to be in with the chance to win!

For starters, there’s this print by Rob Ryan, who will also be selling the season’s must-have wrapping paper, in a design that is exclusive to Craftacular. He’ll be signing the paper and selling it for just £5 a pop.

There’s a brilliant bunting necklace from Craftacular stallholder Lucie Ellen up for grabs.

This super Star necklace from Tatty Devine and ultra hip knit kit, Lil’ Snood Dogg, from Wool and the Gang.

And lots of things from our vendors! A cluster of illustrated goodies by Miss Ella; a truly tropical notebook by CL.AM Correspondence; his and hers Day of the Dead mugs by Juan is Dead; Custom Made‘s glittery Mars Sunrise necklace.


A copy of X-Stich by Sarah Fordham, who will also be selling her Magasin cross-stitched creations; a surprise, sold-out subscription box from Lucky Dip Club; a pair of must-be-lucky stockings from Cherry; a copy of Best Friends Forever: Poems of Female Friendship published by The Emma Press.

One lucky winner will get a bag full of goodies from brilliant Islington shop SMUG – there is some serious loot in here!

Fancy a tea towel-cum-rabbit toy from Ketchup on Everything; this delicate lace necklace by Bobbin & Bow Jewellery; this tote bag, notebook and pencils (including one that usefully says “Don’t be a dickhead”) from the lovely Oh Squirrel; or maybe a workshop voucher from new North London venture A Common Thread, where you could learn to knit, crochet or use a sewing machine? And there’s more… 

We’ve also got a temporary Sycamore tattoo and corresponding brass necklace by The Aviary, and something by Imagination Illustrated. I’m not sure what yet, but everything that artist Nina Dogmetchi does, from her illustrated childrens’ book The Lazy Leopard to her Christmas cards, is amazing. So, yep, simply don’t forget to sign up!
