Well I am back up north after my week working at Company and the We Make London craft fair. A very busy week sleeping at friends' houses -thank you again Lovelies! I finally made it to the cinema to see SATC with Caz and loved it. It was great to catch up with the Company girls again too and squeeze in some well-deserved lunches and shopping.
We Make London was a great fair with fab stalls but a bit quiet on the customer front as it was very 'off the beaten track'. Dave put posters on every lampost in Holborn and Covent Garden but it was just that bit out of the way I think. Nevermind, the people that did find it came and bought Storeyshop goodies including a special request to buy the sock monkey hanging from the balcony! Lots of business cards were taken too so it was still well worth doing.
On the shopping front (I knew I wouldn't be able to resist!) I bought some gorgeous little hair clips from creamrose at the fair, which I have been wearing everyday since! Have a look at her shop for lovely accessories. I got home to a card order from madebycara who had a gorgeous stall opposite us with cute bunting and little 'crayon rolls' -check out her shop too!
Here are a few snaps of the Storeyshop wares on display at We Make..
Now I am busy photographing the latest Storeyshop creations to put online. Keep an eye out for new monkeys and little bags very soon! I also have a few card orders to make and get posted off this afternoon. Various freelance design enquiries are on the cards too which is good. The magazine that I thought had changed their mind about redesigning their lifestyle publication are back in touch and wanting me to start work soon which would be a great project. I'm not holding my breath though. We'll see! A man called wanting me to design a few brand identities for him too. It is looking like a busy few months ahead.
