Fair Trade Hoodies & Tops Now At www.thekraftylady.com !

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well!

Summer is finally here and Festival Season is well underway! For those of you who didn’t know, Download Festival starts this weekend – whilst you’re there grab yourself a copy of The Festival Guide (which usually comes with a load of cool free stuff), and keep an eye out for our advert with a special discount code! We haven’t seen it ourselves yet, so let us know what you think! :-O

I also wanted to tell you about the new hoodies, tops & party hats we’re selling – all of them are 100% Fair Trade and NO CHILD LABOUR was used at all. Every one of them is handmade and unique so no one will be wearing the same design as you! You can view all of our new items here: http://www.thekraftylady.co.uk/products_new.php?page=1

I’ll let the party hats speak for themselves… but we think you’ll like them 🙂 There are also plenty of other festival goodies to stock up with this Summer, including the ever popular rubber poi and ball poi, more ear stretchers, tobacco pouches, fab Fair Trade shawls to keep you warm on those chilly evenings and lots more being added all the time!

I also want to thank everyone for your support once again; it’s been a tough year so far with lots going on behind the scenes and it’s been great to know that we’ve got so many lovelies behind us! 🙂

I hope all of you have an absolutely fantastic day and enjoy Download, or any of the other festivals you might be attending this weekend! Until we speak again… adios! 🙂

Viki and Paul



Summer is Coming & So Are the Festivals!

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I last posted, but there’s been quite a lot going on behind the scenes! Lots of our ranges have been refined and expanded and we’re still working on a new design for the website but it’s slowly coming together.

So, what’s new?! Check out all of our new body jewellery and ear stretchers – the section is expanding and we’re getting even more over the next couple of weeks. If you need advice on ear stretching visit our “Beginner’s Guide to Ear Stretching” and our “Ear Stretching FAQs” pages – it’s had over 12,000 hits so far and I’ve given advice to literally hundreds of people for free – if the answer to your question isn’t on the page then just drop me an email at: thekraftylady@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can.

We’ve also got a fab new “Festival Fun!” section which we’re currently working on filling – they’ll be some VERY special hats in there next week so keep checking back..! And a selection of poi and other fun festival stuff, which we’ll be adding over the next couple of days. There’s also some really nice suede tobacco pouches and Rio carnival whistles!

Our spiritual section will also be expanding soon with a wider range and new items such as chalices, scrying mirrors and tarot cards. It’s taking a while as we’re looking for products that are either fairly traded or made in the U.K. and ethically sourced, so I’ll post again when we get them 🙂

Big news! We have an advert in The Festival Guide which is available from all good festivals in the U.K. throughout the Summer. Keep an eye out for it as it features an exclusive discount code only for Festival Junkies! And it’s also a pretty good read, (the magazine; not the ad! ;-D )

A quick word too on our tube gloves; we can’t get anymore in until the Winter, so what we have left is currently all there is 😦 If you’re planning on getting a pair you need to get in there quick because they’re selling out really fast! Most styles only have one pair left now. We’re desperately trying to find some more but it’s hard as they’re imported, and we only want to get them from a BAFTS supplier to ensure they have been fairly traded.

And finally Paul and I will be taking part in the Kidney Research UK London Bridges Walk again in July this year. If you have some spare pennies any sponsorship would be greatly appreciated; last year we raised over £300 and were hoping to beat that with £500 this year… but so far we’ve only raised £20! I know that asking for money at this time is not really appropriate, but it’s a charity that’s often overlooked and they really do need your support. You can sponsor us at this web page: http://www.kidneyresearchukevents.org/thekraftylady and the money will go directly to Kidney Research UK. If you are a UK taxpayer please giftaid your donation; this means that Kidney Research will receive an extra 28% on top of your donation which comes directly from the government.

I’ll be back very very soon with more news – things are really moving now and there’s lots to do! Enjoy the rest of your day and we look forward to seeing you at the shop! Don’t forget you can keep up with all of us here at The Krafty Lady live on Twitter!





From all of us, have a good one and speak next time!
