Don’t worry if you don’t…. think I am still a bit silly in the head following the ‘flu’ from hell!

SPITALFIELDS did go ahead last week despite the dreaded lurgie and it was a fantastic day. The hours flew by, so many interesting people to chat to. As a launch pad for our Ultimate Vintage Upcycle business, now on facebook…. it really was a great place.

The market was teeming with tourists who simply loved what we are doing with the sourcing genuine vintage fabrics and then upcycling them into cushions, tote bags, bunting, ornaments and the likes. Many business cards were taken and we even gathered some VERY useful emails. All very exciting. We even made some sales to boot!

We now know that the Sunday market would have better suited our stall as it has a very large foot fall of Londoners who are out to shop rather than peruse. Not that I am grumbling, the whole day was fun and we learned so much and we feel even more able to move our little venture forward. This would have started on 4th November had I not been totally struck down but as we so often say, everything happens for a reason. My reason was a definate need to draw breath and re-focus, which I have done and now with renewed vigour am prepping for next week and a big push.

I do hope you will swing by my facebook page to see what I have for sale. I would be especially grateful if you could point your friends and colleagues to the site as well…. the more the merrier!

Shipping will be international, I don’t intend to limit myself to these shores.

The pictures of the day, well we hope you like them. In for a penny, in for a pound we decided to go the whole hog and dress in a vintage inspired way. Think you will agree that DD1 victory roll is AWESOME!

Please do share the new facebook page with your friends….. the more the merrier 😉
