Marvellous much?


We are stuck in doing the final bits of twiddly tweaking and planning and pruning and checking and counting and packing the goodie bags and phew…. we stopped to think for just a moment and it suddenly struck us. This event is going to be totally utterly extremely fantastically and super ace mega boom awesome pants marvellous!

Is it too late to change the poster?

We popped along to the wonderful Sherwood Christmas Craft fair a couple of weekends ago and bumped into a few of our featured artists…. oh me oh my are they brilliant!? We absolutely can NOT wait to see the wonderful array of brilliance that will be on show on the 6th. Christmas come early? We think so!!

Here’s a handy countdown timer:

MollyQueen presents “Something Marvellous”

Date to be announced…….very soon!

MollyQueen is proud to present “something Marvellous” for the first time in almost 2 years. The Marvellous Market is a wonderful day focused around celebrating creativity, community and all things marvellous. The Federation House Social Club in Carrington provides a beautiful setting for a day full of local artistry and craft, live music from some of Nottingham’s most talented musical folk, featured charities, art projects and entertainment for Children and adults alike. There is food provided by Kiosk, Sherwood’s most treasured food people and a fully stocked bar.

You can expect a wide range of high quality, hugely creative artwork, giftware, jewellery, retro and vintage, sweet treats, cupcakes, textiles and lots more. Stalls have been selected with the purpose of providing you with a means to start (and finish) your christmas shopping in one marvellous day.

There will be a selection of local musicians doing their thang and other entertainment to keep you entertained. For more information, including more details about individual stall holders, musicians, activities and everything else you want to know about the event, please follow us on facebook or check back here for updates.


***Applications for stalls are now closed***

All applications have been received and are currently cluttering our desks as we select those who will be invited to showcase at the Marvellous Market. If you have applied and are waiting to find out if you have been successful, please be patient. There are some tough decisions being made! We will be in touch soon and those selected will be given all essential information with plenty of time to spare.

In the mean time, we hope you have had a wonderful Summer holiday, that the return to school isn’t too daunting for those going back, that you have your fingers crossed for some more sun (we do!) and finally, that you are as excited as we are about this thing so marvellous we do every now and then…

Spring, sunshine and the start of stuff…

So… Summer is kind of here. Where did the dark days of winter go? Oh, I know… we spent 3 weeks of in Australia which kinda made it fly… the rest was cold, cold and cold. So back to now, Spring is here, Summer is on its way and that can only mean lots of sitting outside, sitting outside and a spot of sitting outside.

Here are some photographs of the highlights of my last few months…. by the way… I highly recommend starting your own #100HappyDays project. Take a photo of something that makes you happy every day for 100 days and start noticing the little things in life.

Something about this project has got me feeling all creative again….
