When Desmond Elephant met Nelly the Elephant at Frome Independent Market November 20 2014

We have been on the look out for different and original items for Desmond Elephant for some time and decided to check out Frome Independent Market at its monthly Sunday market. If you haven’t been I would highly recommend a day trip. It’s a street market with a difference. The Market takes over the whole town with more than 200 stalls from 10 am to 3pm and brings together independent food and drink producers, contemporary designers & makers, vintage fashion, collectibles and furniture. It has a great buzz and there’s plenty for all the family to enjoy.

We met loads of lovely independent traders and makers and were delighted to meet Susie from Nelly Button at the top of Catherine Hill who was selling the most adorable hand sewn Elephants made from designer fabrics. As you already may be aware we are massive fans of Elephants and the fact that they were called Nelly (my youngest is called Nelly) made them even more special. After a brief chat Susie and I exchanged numbers and agreed to meet over coffee and see how we could bring Nelly Button to Desmond Elephant and 3 months later they have arrived.  Buy your very own limited edition Nelly Elephant here.  


The next Frome Independent Market on Sunday the 7th December is a Christmas Special. For more details www.thefromeindependent.org.uk
