A Day at Newcastle’s Craft and Flea Market

I recently attended a Craft and Flea Market with my boyfriend and it fully exceeded my expectations.

We made a day of it: kicking off with a Blake’s breakfast then going for cocktails afterwards because why not?

The event took place at the Civic Centre in Newcastle (one of few places I’ve never been in the city) and it was the perfect venue. The stalls were laid out perfectly with plenty of room to browse around. That was a good job too considering how many people actually attended. I think me and Liam ended up being there for a couple of hours and there were SO many people coming and going. It was a really successful day.

The products that we bought on the day are discussed in my Youtube video here:

But for more details on the products and the brilliant day, keep on reading.

The stall we were drawn to straight away was Katie’s from ownway.co.

We ended up speaking to her for a while about her company and her products and we bought the most from her.

Between us we bought a beanie, a pin badge and a patch and Katie offered us 10% off our next order and gave us a bag because we supported her in such a big way.

By now, you’ll know how much I love supporting small businesses on this blog, so that meant a lot. You can find more of her products online.

We also bought the cutest little cactus from Gaynor on her stall. It’s so small and only £6 – the cutest little feature to have in my room. She also sold pumpkins, perfect for this time of year. All of her creations are unique and come in a range of different sizes. You can see some of them here.

Liam bought a deer coaster which I’ve been using on my bedside table ever since but we were both silly enough to not get a business card from them! If anyone attended the event and watched the video, can you tell me who the coaster is made by?

He also bought a gorgeous penguin print card for my mums birthday from Heather Does Prints. She creates original art prints and the penguin one was just too cute not to get. Sorry that I didn’t get a photo before Liam had to write it, but it is in the video and if you click here, it’s the same print.

After all that shopping, I was hungry. Thankfully there was an amazing cake stall with a crazy amount of cake. I got an absolutely delicious chocolate orange one and I had to eat it in two sittings because it was just so big. I’m obsessed.

They had so much on offer and there was vegan and gluten free options too.


Among the other stalls there was sea glass jewellery, lots of hand made items, vintage work and lots of organic and vegan pieces. A whole array to make everyone happy!

Everyone just seemed so content at the event which made me happy too. I’m so glad I went and I’d jump at the chance to go again.

Have you ever been to a craft and flea market?

I’d definitely recommend you give it a go. It’s only £2 entry.

  • Sunday 4th November – Paintworks, Bristol
  • Saturday 10th November – Christian Life Centre, Oxford

    Ohhhh I’d absolutely love to go!!!!

    I was thinking going through the final few photos “oh I would have loved this, wish I could have gone” then saw the dates and got just a little giddy!!!

    I’m no good with geography but I don’t think any of those places are close enough for me to go to 🙁

    Glad you had a good time!! I’m so not jealous of that cake…

    I love these types of markets. We have an influx of them coming with the Christmas season, and I can’t wait to hit them all! (my bank account may not agree lol)
