Whilst doing some mid week shopping in the Bullring, I came across a shope called "Created in Birmingham" displaying lots of artwork, jewellry, crafts, books and much more created by people from the Birmingham area....
The shop sells some amazing artwork by local artists and I found myself wanting to invest in some pieces, these are artists definately to watch out for the future. Another display featured vases made from recycled books by a young designer by the name of Laura Cahill, let me tell you, her work is genius! You can check out her work on her webiste... (http://www.lauracahilldesigns.co.uk/) If recycled vases and modern art doesn't take your fancy, there's much more to choose from, whether you're looking for a nice greeting card or an eco - friendly tote bag, there's something for everyone.
Let me tell you, it's one of my favourite stores in the city now. I just think it's amazing how local crafts-people have the opportunity to showcase their talents and skills and have people appreciate it. The shop, situated on Level 3 of the Upper West Mall in the Bullring, is definately a store to check out and it's only there for a limited time, so be quick!
