One of the nicest things about selling at events is that you get to meet such really lovely people. Not just the visitors and customers who give you such great and honest feedback but also the other exhibitors, organisers and support team.
At the weekend I spent a couple of days alongside several local businesses who were new to me including Made by Rose Red , Raindrop Yarns, Blueberry Hill Vintage and Onlyinthewild . It’s so nice to be able to get to know other people with small or evolving businesses, share our experiences and listen and give each other advice. More than that though, it is great to appreciate and be inspired by other people’s creativity and enthusiasm for what they do. Although it is often exhausting to prepare and attend these events, I always come back with a new energy and can’t wait to get back out in my workshop.
Events such as the Miss Ivy’s Revival at Cockington Court, Devon don’t just spring up overnight so also a big thank you to everyone who was involved in the months of planning and organisation as well smoothing out any problems on the days, especially Marissa at the Torbay Development Agency and Joanne and her team at Miss Ivy Events.
So, I’ve got to go now and get making and ready for the Crikey It’s Vintage event at Killerton House on the 21st and 22nd of June where I will be exhibiting a new collection of pieces suitable for weddings and special occasions. Looking forward to it and hoping to see you there!
