The last time I'd visited the Collect Art Fair was back in it's pre-Saatchi Gallery days when my son was a tiny baby, but this year I was lucky enough to win a VIP ticket giveaway run by Young Gold Teeth and Newby Teas - so I headed off down there on the Saturday to explore.

Collect is an Art Fair for Contemporary Objects and Craft so it's right up my street - spread over three floors of the rather fabulous Saatchi Gallery it was definitely a treat for the eyes! I think the event has come on a long way in the last 6 years or so since my previous visits and it certainly didn't disappoint. Unfortunately I missed the evening preview (and goodie bag) as I didn't have childcare, and didn't make it to any of the talks, but if you have more time and flexibility than I do you can certainly make a whole day of it.

Here are images of some of my favourites from the day - keep an eye on the Crafts Council website for the dates for next year!
