Well the momentum keeps growing for Cupcake Cardigans’ designs. I was recently approached by staff at Stockport Art Gallery to participate in its Designer Christmas Craft Show which opened last Saturday and runs until the end of January. This show gives Designer-Makers a platform to display their work and sell it. This is great for me, as my only retail outlet is online. Though this keeps the costs low, it doesn’t really give people the opportunity to see my work up close and personal – and try it on…and we all love trying things on to see if they suit!
There are some other amazing designers showing at the gallery, so I am hugely honoured to have been asked to participate. I had a really successful opening night, selling some of my gorgeous necklaces and bags. It was great to speak to visitors about my work and help them try things on. One lady in particular, Sue, fell in love with my blue pearl-shine button necklace and it looks stunning on her.
I have included some other images from the show, as I recommend you take a trip down there. It is free to enter Stockport Art Gallery and it is open every day, except Mondays, from 1pm. The show is located in the ArtLink section on the ground floor and is a fabulous opportunity to browse some gorgeous gifts for Christmas which won’t break the bank, but are unique in their own right. Every weekend in the lead up to Christmas, there is 10% off all purchase items from the show – so get yourself down there.!!!
On Sunday 4th December, I am attending the Northrop Hall Christmas Gift and Craft Fair and I am hoping for a busy day. Will blog about this next week and let you all know how it went.
Speak to you all soon.
