 For those with friends or relatives whose birthdays are coming up, the E17 Designers Market at the Art Trail is the perfect place to find a present. With a range of lovely bespoke items and prices ranging from starting at just one pound, you may even be tempted to buy yourself something too. For the first time this year, the Market will feature a Book-ish section of artists and illustrators, some of whom participated in the inaugural Book-ish event during the Waltham Forest Literature Festival. They include Middlesex University graduates with prints, cards, featuring contributions from Meow magazine,The Illustrated Ape and Fancy & Fondant.

Browse through a selection of traditional and contemporary jewellery, handmade from silver, semi-precious stones; designer ceramics; quirky, vintage inspired adults and children's clothing, alongside bags and handmade cards. For men you may find an original letterpress slogan, a screen print tee or an elegant etching, framed by hand, all from local artists and designers. 

As well as the stalls, there will be music from a roving "Ukahoola" band, and Ceilidh specialists, The Stowicks will play too. Treat yourself to a cake from Suzie's Kitchen, followed by some fresh juice from The London Farmer's Market. Entry includes a free drink and the chance to win E17 Designers' goody bags.
