Etsy Made Local: Dorset Team Christmas Market 2017

This past weekend I had a lovely time selling some of my Beauxoxo hair accessories at the Dorset Etsy Team Christmas Market. I'm so passionate about supporting local and handmade businesses and as Christmas shopping fever is definitely in the air, I wanted to share all the lovely things available in this community that would make the perfect Christmas treat for yourself or your nearest and dearest.

The Dorset Etsy Team Christmas market is part of the Etsy Made Local scheme that takes place across the country giving Etsy sellers the opportunity to sell their products in person. It also coincides with Small Business Saturday, a day that highlights the amazing work of small businesses.

The Dorset Etsy Team was again held at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne where two rooms of the centre were filled with incredible talent from local artists, crafters, illustrators, jewellery designers, cakes, hair accessories (oh hey, that's me!), cards and Christmas ornaments as well as vintage and antique treasures. It was the perfect opportunity to shop for unique gifts and for so many amazing artists to come together under one roof.

I made a video of the day on my new Olympus Pen (more on this soon!) and the 45mm lens and it captures an event like this really beautifully so let me know if you'd like more videos like this. I've picked some of my highlight artists below but if you want to see all the amazing people that were part of this event a full list of artists can be found right here.

How amazing is everything above? I really hope you discover some new shops on Etsy you love! The Etsy Made Local events are always a special way to meet with other local sellers and realise how powerful the Etsy community truly is. And as always, huge congratulations to The Dorothy Days for pulling this together so brilliantly as usual.

Were you able to shop at a Etsy Made Local market this year? Did you come to the Dorset Team event? If not, are you giving an Etsy presents to friends and family this year? Tell me your favourite sellers and everything you're lusting after below. You can shop Beauxoxo on Etsy here.

Cyber Weekend: 20% off everything at Beauxoxo!

Oh hello Cyber Weekend! Yes, that's right, it's that time of year again! And so with love from Beauxoxo, take 20% off everything with the code CYBERWEEKEND at checkout from right now this minute until 28th November 11pm GMT. And wait there's more! Because it's my birthday on the 27th November, every single order will get an extra something free on that day. Because who doesn't like freebies?! ♥
But in other very exciting news, as you are reading this I will be away in Paris, my favourite city in the world to shoot a fashion film for my beret collection (the cute one featured below is the Woodland Beret in Green). I've dreamt of creating a fashion film in Paris for years now, really as soon as I had the idea to make this collection, so be sure to keep an eye on the Beauxoxo Instagram because I will be sharing behind the scene moments there. And for personal moments from my birthday weekend, and practically a Parisian fan account, my personal Instagram is right here.
Finally, I just want to wish my USA friends a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I'm so incredibly grateful and blessed for your support always. Over 70% of my customers at Beauxoxo are actually from the USA, and the same sort of stats are present on my blog, so I feel immensely thankful to you all across the pond for your constant support! I've put together this little look for Thanksgiving featuring my burgundy velvet turban and I'm wishing you all a lovely weekend.

So until next time, à bientôt! ♥
