A Most Curious Xmas Kids Fair


On Sunday, hubs and I ventured around A Most Curious Christmas Kids Fair and what a treat it was! The fair was bursting with holiday spirit and some of the most inspiring brands in the children's industry to date. So I have this new thing where I like to pick out things for future baby Beale... clothing, toys, decor... you know, just for pretend... and man oh man was this the perfect place for my little game! It was a window shoppers delight and it was a pleasure meeting some new faces in the kid's scene. Not to mention the perfect chance to get some really amazing finds for any early Christmas shoppers out there. Here's a little recap of my visit...

Little Bird is the perfect place to find the best deals on just about anything family related. If you are looking for things to do, places to eat, or ways to spend some quality time with the little ones, makes sure to sign up their mailing list pronto!

Helen Gordon showcased a range full of nostalgic and vintage inspired prints. Reds and greens took center stage quite nicely when placed alongside denim. Prints were also seen throughout the accessories... and some were even featured as stand alone prints to spruce up a wee one's room!

The Cat In The Shoe had the most mystical, winter wonderland stall ever! Whimsical characters included hybrid animals, clocks with legs, and Christmas tree girlies. It's safe to safe that I wanted to buy one of everything... and for myself too!

Lottie Nottie was full of some of the cutest hair accessories for little girls I've ever seen! Such a huge selection and variety... and the best thing, not everything was pink or overly girly. Inspired by a tomboy daughter, it is safe to say they have a hair bow or clip to suit any little lady's needs.

I Wish I Was A is probably one of the coolest kid's brands I have come across so far. The concept is pure genius and so simple... costumes and accessories encouraging kids run wild with their imaginations! I was especially drawn to the bold felt mustaches, perfect for stocking stuffers!

The Modern Baby had some of the greatest brands in kid's decor and plush toys on show. Each and every piece was so creative and inspiring... perfect for anyone looking to decorate with more individuality in mind and wanting to stay away from the traditional blues and pinks. Between you and me, I secretly want to stock up on a few plushies for future baby Beale ;)

Oh Baby London had a stall that you just couldn't walk by and not stop at! Full of quirky fun clothing, accessories, and toys... each one cuter than the next! How gorgeous is that leopard print long sleeve dress above? Could be a potential Christmas party dress for a budding little fashionista!

Gigi & Co had me in gingham heaven! For their debut collection, the showed off the beloved check in the most bright and iconic colors imaginable. Pulling design inspiration from her own childhood, the pieces have a vintage feel while staying modern and up to date. The best part, 100 % cotton makes them easy to wear and easy care!

Yellow Lolly is the best place to shop for little individuals! They had so many unique brands and pieces... all Scandinavian I might add. Browsing through their stand (which was bursting with color and playful prints!) I spotted a few of my personal favorite brands which I must admit, made me quite happy!

Niddle Noddle looked like a giant treasure box! I was blown away by the eclectic mix of vintage and vintage inspired, well... everything! From toys to clothing to furniture... it was all there! There were so many cool little bits and bobs to look at, it was hard to chose where to start (in a good way of course!) And how cute is that little knitted romper?!? I just about died it's so stinking cute!

Home & Kids had a stall filled with just that... all things imaginable for the home and kids alike. A seamless blend of vintage and modern clothing, toys, and accessories at your fingertips! I especially loved the framed vintage artwork that would add just a little warmth to any little one's room.

Mini Moroc was all vibrant brights and colors as usual. Who says dark and dull has to be worn in the wintery months? Certainly not them! And I even got a sneak peak at a limited edition top, debuting in California in a bit (luckies!)... it's that gorgeous turquoise number above!

Molly-Meg was already one of my favorite online stores with everything you could want... or need, to decorate the most amazing little one's nursery and/or room but it was so nice to see the products in person! This is definitely a one stop shop where great design meets a child's needs in every way imaginable.

 Many Hands had such a lovely and original assortment of prints, stationary, paper goods... you name it, they had it! I really loved their graphic bird coasters (hint, hint secret Santa!) which would be such a great gift idea... just saying!

Of course there were many other lovely brands, stockists, and vendors... but sadly, I couldn't make it around to all of them. This is just a taste of the inspiring and innovating things the world of little ones has to offer these days... kind of makes me wish I was a kid again!

If you are in or around the Norwich area, make sure to take a trip to the last of the A Most Curious Christmas Kids Fair for this holiday season... trust me, it''l be worth your while!
