Our craft and Chat sessions are still going, feel free to come along and enjoy! All ages and abilities welcome, plenty of experienced crafters on hand to give hints and tips as needed :)

We have been tossing around the idea of ‘Granny Graffiti’ with hopes of finding a way to merge crafty fun with advertising Bargoed town centre and all it has to offer, and benefit a charitable cause at the same time, if you have any ideas or would like to get involved, please do drop into the shop for a chat, send me an email or post on our Facebook page. If you have just read the words ‘Granny Graffiti’ and are thinking ‘what on earth…? then this link should give you a better idea -> granny graffiti and this gorgeous example should provide some inspiration too!

In the ever changing world of DippyHippy you’re unlikely to walk in and have the same experience twice, couldn’t find anything you wanted last time? Come have a look again as stock changes all the time and you wont find anything similar in your average high street shop :) Owner Vicky also does repairs and alterations and creates custom clothes made to measure, a service she believes no-one should have to pay through the nose for, this includes things such as maternity wear, unusual bridal wear and beloved old styles that you won’t find on the high street.

Come along and experience DippyHippy, it’s unlikely to be like anywhere you’ve ever been before

 

Peace, love and all that other stuff :P
