Review – Bootleg Social Ladies’ Night

Bootleg Social

It is that time of year again where the crème de la crème of Blackpool Artists and Crafters set up their wares all over the town in a number of amazing festive fairs and pop up events. Big or small, old and new, these events are sure to bring in a crowd of excited shoppers looking for something a little bit different than what can be found in the high street stores.

In their second year running “Ladies Night” (Men are welcome too!) Bootleg Social, on Topping Street, presented us with a truly specular event, providing the customers with an interesting and unique shopping experience in their underground market night.

The hostess and organiser Natalie welcomed all who stepped inside with a warm smile. Performers Megan Roe and Nicole Heavey provided the ambiance while the bar and kitchen catered some yummy food and drinks for a surge of eager punters. Surrounded by the ever-evolving mosaics, Bootleg was the perfect setting for this magical evening.

The quality of stalls was outstanding, each of the makers offering something very different from the one before. From Vegan cupcakes, dreamcatchers to bespoke dresses and jewellery there really was something for everyone! No-one left empty handed.

What was particularly special about this event was the platform it provided for some of the scenes newest crafters, popped in alongside some well-known and loved faces on the makers circuit. Squeals of delight could be heard coming from the stall of Felicity Slack-Broadhurst who’s unicorn/pug mash-up artwork was a real hit! (Who doesn’t love a good unicorn mash-up?) Her stall provided an eclectic mix of goods but her extraordinary head dresses really stood out!  Kat Wilson offered a selection of delicious flavours with her £1 vegan cupcakes; they simply flew off the stall.  Sarah Loftus came armed with her stunning selection of bespoke retro dresses and accessories, you would have to go far to beat the craftsmanship on her beautiful garments and they were just the tip of the ice-burg!

If you didn’t manage to pop down, do not despair! You won’t have to wait a whole year for the next one; Bootleg Social will be running a similar event over summer 2018. Keep your eyes peeled on their social media accounts and websites or why not enquire when you pop in for one the many exciting events that run thoughtout the year!
