Made in Bristol Gift Fest

Some days ago I walked to Bristol city centre looking for some Christmas gifts. I went to the Made in Bristol Gift Fest, I found some interesting things like natural cosmetic or prints but nothing to buy for my people.

During the weekends The Harbourside Market is a nice place to go for a walk, you can find there second hand books, handmade stuff, street food… and lots of people having a good time.

In this market I found some good presents. This stall with bike tyre belts is always there. I like them because they are sustainable, vegan, durable and handmade.

I found a great handmade and natural cosmetics brand, Wild Sage & Co, the girl in the stall was lovely, she is the daughter of the woman behind this. You can have a look to their products in the web.

Most of their products are vegan but some balms with bee wax. After try some of them in the stall I decided to get two of Frankincense+Shea Balm, one for me and one for my sister. It smelled so good, pure nature. I love using it on my face before go to bed, next morning your skin is soft and ready to star a new day.
