We are very lucky to have The Bowery in Leeds. The Bowery is that great combination of gallery, workshop, gifts and cafe.

It's a great place to meet friends for a coffee and it's always nice to have beautiful contemporary Artists' work on display to have a little peruse at after.

I have bought quite a few cards and gifts from here and currently have my eye on a lampshade that I keep seeing. One day soon I think I'll not be able to resist any longer...

As well as being lucky enough to live close by to The Bowery, I am also lucky enough to call them a Stockist. They came to see me at BCTF last month and it seems that other people must be as fond of the place as I am as things are selling really well and today I delivered my second box of goodies.

I haven't been in since delivering the first pieces and so hadn't seen the display. I have to say I was chuffed to bits to see all my things looking so bright and eye-catching. I am so pleased my things are doing so well here.

The only thing that isn't going too well, however, is my camera...the lead to my Mac is playing up and so am having to take photos on my iphone and as you can tell, it isn't quite cutting it. It was a pretty grey day too which didn't help much.

If you live near to The Bowery (it's in Headingley, Leeds) and haven't yet managed a trip, you won't be disappointed. And bear in mind it looks more tempting than it does in my dreary photos...

That is great that a store you really like stocks your items. I'll bet it was great to see them looking so fancy and pretty in the window screaming "buy me, I'm so cute!" to people passing by :) Way to go!

Brilliant! Never mind photo quality, can tell your things look fab in the window! Yay! I would love to have my work in a place like this.xx

What a great place to sell your items in - but then they must be really pleased to have your lovely items to sell...win, win! You must feel proud - I know I would!

Your items look fantastic, adding some lovely bright splashes of colour. A great opportunity.

I love hearing about good places that sell coffee! I will be sure to look this up if ever in Leeds. It looks very inviting, all the best selling your goodies, Lisanne xx

Just found your blog while searching for something (can't for the life of me think what now) but just wanted to say I've been there - The Bowery, very nice :-) (I live in Ossett)
Love the toiletries bags.
