The Fableists will be at Hackney Wick on Saturday December 6


Fableist Daf will be at The Wick December 6th (yes, tomorrow!!!). The Wick is a new weekly event, launched at the end of the summer by Liz Mendez, and Sonia Anderson, the girls behind East London’s ‘Kubicle’ parties, who have had over 10 years experience running events in East London as well as hosting areas at many festivals in the UK and further afield, including Glastonbury, Secret Garden and Lovebox.

They’ve taken over the programming for every Saturday at the brilliant Old Bathhouse venue in Hackney Wick, E9. It’s an old 1930’s Art Deco public bathhouse and has numerous indoor and outdoor spaces, all spacious and unique.

Outside there is a beach area, Tiki cocktails bar, Street food, buskers and live art, inside there is a boutique market with fashion, accessories, vintage, arts and crafts, homewares and collectibles, chilled out DJ area, kids activities, Yoga, gallery space and café.

The crowd is a fun, vibrant and creative one and children and dogs are welcome until 6pm. The first Saturday of the month (i.e. tomorrow) is a kid focused week.

Come out and see us at this super fun place. It’s all about the kids tomorrow!

The Ethical Box Pop Up Shop Saturday November 29th & Sunday November 30th

If you haven’t checked out Ethical Box yet, then please have a look. They are an online marketplace for ethical brands. This weekend, they are holding a pop up shop just off Brick Lane, London, to celebrate their launch. And The Fableists will be there. PopUpPosterJPG

The founders behind new e-commerce site, EthicalBox, are on a mission to show customers that fashion and accessories can still be on-trend, yet sustainable and ethical at the same time. Inspired by the success of Etsy, EthicalBox is an online shopping website where customers can browse and purchase items from the collections of various ethical designers with the click of a button, snap of a smartphone or touch of tablet.

With over 20 different brands currently available, customers will be pleased by the selection of fair-trade merchandise, moderately priced items, easy shipping policy and on-trend collections.

To celebrate the exciting launch of the website, EthicalBox will unveil a pop-up store at Brick Lane Market from November 29-30, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 20 Cheshire Street, London, E2 6EH. Customers are invited to see the EthicalBox site come to life at the pop-up – with representation not just from the brands themselves, but the EthicalBox team as well.

Not only will customers be able to meet the designers behind their favourite sustainable brands on site and save with no shipping fees, but those who attend the pop-up event will also be able to vie for a piece from the exclusive, limited edition EthicalBox T-Shirt line. Only 50 t-shirts, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles turned into fabric, will be available for purchase.

In the spirit of the sustainability, the EthicalBox team will also be handing out 5,000 EthicalBox recyclable water bottles to those attending the pop-up event. A street team will also be on hand to ensure water bottles stay in customer’s hands – and not on the East end ground. The street team will be active on social media throughout the event as well.

EthicalBox, which first launched on October 31 continues to build momentum before the holiday season, as the focus on many Christmas lists this year is sustainable, ethical fashion items to spread cheer for family and friends.

For more information, please visit the EthicalBox website at or view EthicalBox on social media channels such as Instagram (@EthicalBox), Twitter, (@Ethical_Box), or Facebook, (

The event will be taking place across the last weekend of November, one of the busiest shopping times, as it is also Black Friday weekend.

The store is just next to the busy Brick Lane and we expect to draw in a lot of traffic from the market and local vintage and fashion stores.

Christmas at the Fableists Store

Obviously, we are absolutely busting with Christmas excitement. The problem is – no one else seems to be. Everyone seems really ‘bah humbug’ about the whole thing this year.

As a result, we have held back with our Christmas decorations in the store. It still looks like this.

Nice, I know but it really should look like the elves have visited by now, shouldn’t it?

It’s getting harder and harder to hold the ‘Christmas’ in and I’m afraid we’re about to explode. So, in order to reign ourselves in, we are planning said explosion. And it’s starting next week.

We have some special holiday events planned:

Thursday November 27th: Late Opening in Coggeshall for Christmas Shopping. The Fableists will be involved in this event at  our store (address below). Many local shops will open until at least 8pm and will be serving festive refreshments.

Saturday December 6th: Coggeshall Christmas. Our local Christmas Fayre takes over Coggeshall. If you are looking for a wonderful, traditional village Christmas event, then look no further. There will be market stalls inside and out, a visit from Father Christmas, entertainment and the turning on of the Christmas lights. It’s great fun for the whole family.

Please drop in and see us at the store for these fun events, or any other time in the lead up to Christmas.
