I had some great feedback from customers being able to see and touch my products as you just cannot explain on a website how soft the cushions are or accurately represent the true vibrancy of the colours.
It's always so fantastic to meet you all face to face so do come and say hello, it's a great chance to shop local and meet some of Brighton's creative inhabitants!
Come and see me at Made Brighton
for one day only this Saturday 24th November,
I will have treasures not on the website and there are so many other great stands too.
Shop small and support some creatives whilst getting unique and thoughtful presents for your friends and family.
As an independent wallpaper and homeware designer, I had such a fantastic time at Handmade Kew in October.
I finally got to meet so many of my lovely customers face to face. I work alone in my cabin most of the time. I am a fairly solitary soul but it was really nice to get out of my comfort zone and meet some interesting people.
Here is me and littlest bubs at the show.
It's always useful to get the chance to get some feedback on designs and products and see what people like, and don't like!
The Chameleon character which is one of my oldest wallpaper designs did so well. I sold out of the new chameleon print cosmetic bags, cushions
and all but one art print.
I have since created a brand new tea towel
design and am planning a new greeting card as it seems I underestimated this colourful little reptile. You never can tell what will be popular.
I tried not to spend all my profits on the other stands, but it was hard!
Ingrid Aaroe had the most beautiful blue ceramic vases
and bowls. The colours were really extraordinary.
I also found my new favourite piece of jewellery.
I need to get my hands on Emma Keating's amazing lizard necklace.
Because I love tropical animals, this piece really stood out to me.
I hope to be back at Kew next year and maybe even do one of the other design fairs and venues too. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements.
