Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Custard Factory shopping

I’m really looking forward to tenants moving into the front units of the Custard Factory. It’s looking lovely. I went there the other day to have a mooch. One of the shops that I know is moving to the front of the building is Urban Village who are currently situated between the reception and theatre. They are having a relocation sale at the moment and I really enjoyed having a good rummage. I bought a beautiful embroidered blouse for £3 and a dress from one of the other vintage retailers. They have some great dresses there at the moment.

Although Creative Open Workshops (COW) wasn’t open at the time I visited, I noticed they have a Valentine’s Handmade Market this Saturday from 11-5pm. Locals artists and designer-makers will be at COW selling their wares. These include: Bodkin and Bead, Eiriel’s Eclectics, Affinitie Aromatherapy, Gosia Weber – Bags Handmade, Helen Woodward Jewellery, Michelle Parker, Rachel D Warren Jewellery & Beads. Well worth a look. The 13 is also Saturday Flea day, so even more reason to have a peek!

    The Urban Village sale is a good ‘un. I bought a black, 70’s cocktail dress that has a Mrs Robinson look about it (the one from The Graduate, not Northern Ireland).
