Bird's Yard Sheffield - My First Day!

For those of you who don't live in, or know, Sheffield you might not have heard of Bird's Yard. But in Sheffield it's a very popular place to find unique items from local designers. I've recently started selling there too! Today was my first shift in the shop and I couldn't resist taking lots of photos to share.

Bird's Yard is on Chapel Walk in the city centre and is a collection of work by independent local designers, makers, crafters and vintage sellers all under one roof - kind of like a continual craft fair. There are so many wonderful items in there including clothes, stationery and home wares - and many more besides. Each creator who sells there has there own space and also spends some time in the shop each month. I joined Bird's Yard just a couple of weeks ago and offer my Uniquely Upcycled range of greeting cards, gift tags, gift bags, stickers and jewellery. This afternoon was my first shift in the shop and I just had to share some of the treasures in there!

That was me today!

Home wares Bird's Yard Sheffield

A gorgeous selection of goodies for your home are available, from food for the kitchen to the plates to eat it off; cushions; and ornaments both handmade and vintage. I love the plate with a poodle on stilts (who knew they could do that?) from Mellor Ware and the jams, chutneys, honeys and many more tasty treats from Just Deli looked irresistible! There were a few beautiful comfy cushions in there too!

clothing and accessories bird's yard sheffield

Bird's Yard is a great place for some unique, vintage and locally designed clothing, jewellery and accessories. There are lots of very cute brooches (I can't resist an animal brooch especially this owl, squirrel and deer from Velvet Moth), jewellery made with cutlery from Sheffield by Tea Wear, upcycled clothes and lovely hair accessories, including some very pretty pansy hair grips, by Imogen's Imagination.

gifts at Bird's Yard Sheffield

The shop is the perfect place to find a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself! I've made a long list ready for Christmas (and if anyone I know is reading and wondering what to get me for a gift, the Honey Whipped Skin Cream smells delicious!) There are also adorable soft shoes and baby grows from Poco Nido for any little ones you know. And tucked away in the corner is a fabulous library of classic and local interest books.

And not forgetting my handcrafted items too!
