Folksy Friday Featured Seller

Today's Folksy Friday is slightly different ~ I've decided to feature the work of one Folksy shop which this week is ..............

Folksy shop Millicent is run by Janet Allinson from Lincolnshire and is named after her daughter Milly. Janet worked as a reporter for her local paper for 17 years before returning to her art roots. She got into recycling in 2006 (when her husband began hiding his shirts!) and regularly scours her local charity shops for interesting materials, particularly spots and stripes.

Bag Tag

Once her finds have been washed Janet is ready to start creating her bright and colourful paperweights, fridge magnets, tags, pencil cases, hangers and bookmarks. Each piece is unique and evolves in it's own way. It was her very cute mouse paperweights that made me stop and investigate her shop!
