Quirky quarter 😍
Jul 2021 • Couples
A very quirky find. An area full of quirky bars and restaurants. Unsure whether this is typically a student haunt, the vibe suggests it is. However, due to time of year (July) and just post total movement freedom re Covid, there were none around. Which for my ancient years 🤣 late 50s was probably a good move.

Quirky place. Worth a visit for lots of activities and boutique restaurants and cafes. We visited the Matrix VR place and kids loved the experience a lot. The wall art is fantastic too.

Love this place. The street art puts leake street to shame (it’s endless!), the bars and indie stores are brilliant and the whole place has a cool vibe. The giant dryad has lasted! Definitely one to take a load of photos and spend an afternoon.

Stickie Fingers Digbeth
Mar 2020 • Solo
I phoned the store 'Stickie Fingers' on Saturday and spoke with the owner Naomi to ask whether I could order doughnuts for the following day...
Even though the store didn't open Sundays, Naomi made a special effort to make me some. I popped to the store today (yes, it was closed!) Yet, there was Naomi greeting me with a smile and handed over my doughnuts!
Talk of going above and beyond to make a customer happy!!!!
The selection of doughnuts were simply delicious!
Give this place a try... If you've got a hankering for a sweet dish, you shouldn't look any further than Stickie Fingers in Digbeth, Birmingham!
Bravo Naomi, keep up the good work!

Mostly shut
Oct 2019
Apart from a few bars, restaurants and cafes everything was shut when we visited the Custard Factory during a recent weekday visit. Has the bubble burst on shop rentals at this location? Very disappointing especially as we had made the effort to walk from the city centre.

Mac repair
Sep 2019
Custard factory is a bit of a quirky place. I'm not really sure what imagine it's meant to be. There is only a small amount of shops/cafes/restaurants there with some businesses. Digbeth dining is next door. Some of the buildings are covered some really good artwork graffiti. The only reason i needed to be here was for the mac repair shop which is great, fast and much cheaper then apple.

Reiss Sample Sale
Oct 2019 • Solo
I attended the Reiss clothing sample sale this weekend as a solo male. I find that people usually attend sample sales for one of three reasons. (1) hoping to fill their wardrobe with lots of high end brand items for as little money as possible. i.e. £5 - £30 per item (2) hoping to find hidden gems (one off samples) that can’t easily be brought anywhere else (3) hoping purchase items at a knock down price but not necessarily for basement prices. If I’m honest I fall in to all three categories depending on the brands on sales. So for this Reiss sale I’d say number 1 was my main goal for attending.

On arrival I was asked to hand over my coat (which is compulsory for all attendees). Which I’ve never experienced at a sample sale previously. It was similar to a nightclub cloakroom experience, where you hand over your coat and are given a ticket to hand in on collection. It didn’t feel intrusive and coat staff were polite and welcoming. I also was ask to donate £2 (don’t know if this was meant to be voluntary but did it anyway).

I then entered the sale, which I’d say was decent size compared to my previous experiences at sample sales. I’d say the room was about the same size as a school canteen or sports hall. It was filled with rails of clothing but the rails were separated down middle with tables holding footwear and accessories like scarfs, bags, ties etc. The men’s and women’s rails separated on either sides of the middle table.

In my option the cloths selection was smart and smart casual. Items were reasonably priced. Shirts £15, Pant £20, Jeans £20, footwear £35-£50, polos £15, knitwear £20, Coats £50-£120. The items offered significant savings on there RRP.

It was a warehouse sale, so most of the items can be viewed online. It was hosted by Showcase.co and it felt like experienced people were behind the event.

Overall I’d say it was good sample sale, that offered good value. They had a decent range of different sizes (which can a nightmare at these events). I’m a medium/large depending of the item but I did notice small and XL sizes.

I purchased some shirts and jeans but I didn’t achieve my goal due to the lack of variety. Would I attend again? Probably would I recommend? I advised you to look online before attending to get a sense of the Reiss style to see if fits your personal taste.
