Spring is in the air!

Great news, I have just heard we have been accepted for the Made in the Shade Springtime Jamboree. Whoop Whoop!!!

The Made In The Shade Springtime Jamboree will showcase the work of over 30 local designer makers and creative businesses. Organised by the owners of all-new handmade gloryhole, The Maisonette in De Courcy's Arcade, Glasgow. Business partners Carrie Maclennan and Clare Nicolson are devoted to promoting and nurturing craft and design talent.

On the day, visitors can expect to be transported to a land of retro rebel housewives in hand-made aprons as they are treated to the sounds of rock'n'roll cool cats, honkytonkers and vintage drag on the decks.

As they explore the pick of over thirty stallholders selling products designed and handcrafted with love, customers can take part in the enhanced shopping experience by contributing to public crafting project, The Bunting Bonanza or by spending some time with the Made In The Shade stylist in the Not Now Cato! Vintage Dressing Room.

There will even be a DIY vintage-style photo booth set up for visitors to capture a snap of their day out! Very special goody bags containing handmade treats from designer makers, miniature art and other special gifts will be presented to early birds!

So why not come on by and say hello, its such a great event and love taking part. I always try my best not to spend my pennies, but it never quite happens.

I will be posting more info on the Springtime Jamboree and sneaky peeks at what will be on offer at our stall in the coming weeks. But will hopefully see you there! Lx

  2. See you there Lottie, there's no need to be nervous, just enough it. It can be really rewarding meeting customers face to face and finding out what they they think of your designs. Leahx
