Yard Market traders
Reto BambiI’m a retro and vintage trader mainly selling ladieswear and the occasional menswear. I sell lots of bright patterns as I love a bit of sparkle and anything thats a bit different and catches my eye! I sell at Judys Vintage fairs, Dalston Market and East London Vintage Fair among others. I like to sell things that are a bit different but also like to accommodate my customers that want to tone it down a bit. I sell the occasional 1940s to 1960s but particular love selling 70s and 80s. Prices range from a top for £5 up to £200 odd for a fabulous fur. Im affordable and fair with my prices so my customers come back.
Beloved VintageI have been a lover of all things vintage for over 10 years. I have an eclectic mix of furniture, clothing & accessories, kitchenalia, and lots more in between. I have a love of 1940 & 50s fashion and mid- century furniture. I'd like to think I have something for everyone in my collection of unique, sometimes quirky vintage items. I travel across the country and even the US looking for those special items that will make a statement in any home. I have classic mid-century furniture whose iconic designs make them stand out and fit in anywhere. My fashion items are from 1940 -60, all very stylish and fun to where on all occasions and in the very best condition. I have an assortment of kitchenalia and tableware in classic designs and some rare.
We offer bespoke botanical beauty. We sell some handmade pots and beautiful plants, and we also do event styling, and plant subscriptions.

Antique Teacup CandlesI sell a wonderful selection of two hundred years of British tea-drinking china. Completely ecological, I use only antique and vintage teacups. My candles are all hand poured by myself and are made from 100% pure natural wax, lead free wicks and organic essential oils from a physic garden in Somerset (mostly country garden florals), making a unique gift that can be burnt through, washed and then reused yet again. Each china teacup celebrates the accomplishments of British design and craftsmanship and includes a brief hand written history of its origin and special qualities. Prices range from £19-£29 with a limited range of Georgian and Regency pieces priced from £40-£150.
Purple Palm Yoga
I'm a passionate yoga teacher based South East, first turned to making out of necessity when I needed lavender eye pillows for relaxation in class, but found none of decent quality. So I started making my own with homegrown lavender and fabrics I'd collected on my world travels. Currently I hand make funky yoga mat bags using ethically sourced and often up-cycled fabrics. As well as lavender eye pillows made with 100% cotton and filled with fresh Lewisham lavender flowers that I grow myself. Meditation cushions and bolsters. Also pretty fabric covered A5 notebooks or yoga journals.
I’ve lived as a local mum in the East End for close to 10 years. I was born in Malaysia but grew up in gourmet-loving Australia. My parents are from Penang Island, so I grew up eating a wide variety of foods from the many regional influences of Malaysia. I was keen to discover the techniques of preparing Malaysian cuisine, having spent many hours helping my parents in the kitchen from a very young age. I immersed myself in the subtle and intricate nature of Malaysian cooking.
All my products are upcycled and handmade in Bow. I re- use clothes and create unique and sustainable pieces in a new context. In order to ensure that my products meet the needs of both children and adults, sourcing the right materials and transparency in manufacture are the key. When applying patches to my re- designed pieces, I rely on cork, a sustainable and vegan alternative to leather. I also offering an upcycling service that creates bespoke kidswear out of those clothes that their parents have stopped wearing - Daddy’s old shirt becomes his son’s new pair of trousers, mum’s cardigan turns into a hat, and the new pieces carry their very special own story.
I am a full time mum to twin girls. I've always loved making and sewing, and found that I was inspired to get out my sewing machine again when they were born, making them blankets, clothing and accessories.I make clothing, accessories and homewares for children and babies. I use fun, bright and good quality materials and aim to make beautifully designed, practical products. My current range includes blankets, quilts, bibs, bloomers, skirts, and headpieces.
