Stripey Squirrel

Herne Hill Market




Stripey Squirrel is a unique little clothing line for babies and toddlers, all about saving waste, upcycling and reusing lovely fabrics and materials that need a new lease of life. They make everything themselves using second hand and pre-loved clothing so each piece is one of a kind.

There's a wide selection of trousers, leggings, skirts, shorts and tops ranging from new born sizes to approximately 4 years old. They also love doing commissions using that old jumper or dress you have gathering dust in your wardrobe and transforming it into something for a special little person!

Check out their website or Etsy shop to see the range or to get it touch, or follow them on Facebook.

Joan Longley

Herne Hill Market

Joan Longley is a botanical artist who uses mainly coloured pencils to create her designs of flowers, birds, and insects; in fact anything you may see in a garden. She attempts to draw as close to reality as she can possibly achieve. She uses coloured pencil as her main medium because she finds it gives her a good depth of colour, occasionally she also uses watercolour. She transfers her drawings to greeting cards, gift wrap, gift tags, cotton shopping bags, tee shirts, and calendars. This is an enjoyable and inexpensive way of sharing her work with other people. She also draws pet portraits using pastels or coloured pencils, using photographs provided by devoted pet owners.

Joan has been with CCFM at Herne Hill since it started in July 2012 when she was 76 years old, so she is possibly the oldest stall holder there!

Urban Country – Paul Francis

Herne Hill Market

Paul Francis has been working in around clothing for over twenty years, which includes designing and styling as well as selling vintage/period clothing.

The buying of period clothing started around thirty years ago for personal use. That then led him into the world of designing, having often alterations to garments that he had purchased. The first job he got as a designer was to style and design the Groom side of a wedding, which included three different designs for eight men. He has continued to do styling, whether it be wedding groups, of which he’s done a number of in the last couple of years, mainly using period clothing, but some newly handmade.

He also attends Spitalfields (Thursdays), Brixton (Saturdays) twice monthly, and periodically Covent Garden (Monday).
