Being so active on Twitter means I talk to a lot of people, many in Bristol. It never ceases to amaze me how talented the people I know are – one of these Bristol based talented people is Ani Stafford-Townsend. Ani is a milliner who has just opened her own shop in St James’ Arcade, Broadmead and she’s selling her own work as well as some carefully chosen pieces by other designers – there’s hats, fascinators, jewellery and handbags for sale, so if you’re looking for the perfect accessories for a special outfit, you’re sure to find something here!
(I took most of these photos around Hallowe’en because I am an awful blogger these days, so if you visit now, it probably looks quite different!)
The reason I’m posting this now is because this Saturday, Ani is organising a pop up Christmas Market in the Arcade which will have lots of lovely gifts for you to buy as Christmas presents for yourself or others – I know that Black Heart Creatives will be there, with some awesome festive pieces (I already have a little shopping list…) so do visit if you are braving Broadmead on a Saturday before Christmas.
