A Folksy recommendation - Kakes Makes

Before Christmas, I was browsing Folksy and happened to come across Kakes Makes, a seller specialising in beautiful and individual items crafted from "vintage and recycled fabrics and reclaimed objects", whose "items are poignant and have an aura of nostalgia". How could I possibly resist?!

I had just over £5 sitting in my PayPal account so treated myself to three items, which arrived quickly despite the snow:

Robin pin badge, 50p (for one)

B for Balloon brooch, £3

Domino brooch, £2

Lovely. I especially love the B for Balloon brooch as it reminds me of an alphabet jigsaw I used to make at playgroup when I was tiny!

I now want one of the felt polaroid camera brooches (a bargain at £4 each) but the self-imposed shopping ban started today! Gah!

Felt polaroid camera brooch, £4


  1. Nice stuff. I like. I'm often on the look out for cute/funky magnets and sellers who do pin badges often make them into magnets as well!

    I shall check her out :)

  2. hello! ooh thank you so much for this feature - it's great! I'm so pleased that you like everything too :)
    Happy New Year!
