Popped -Up !!

The Christmas Boutique that my daughter Lucy has set up, was miraculously put together in THREE days, and opened last night. I wondered why these ventures were called ‘Pop-Up’ !! About 60 people came for drinks and delicious nibbles, and actually spent a bit of money on  our goodies – many thanks everyone. Today it opened to the general public, and apparently one chap ‘popped in’ only minutes after opening and snapped up two knitted cotton bags, by the Cutout Girls. He had been watching our setting-up progress, with interest apparently.

We have handmade cards, silver jewellery with freshwater pearls and semi-precious beads, brass bookmarks that your Dad or Grandfather would really like, some superb vintage silk scarves at only 10 quid (there’s even a Louis Feraud 1970’s one), embossed metal cards and tree decs from Nicaragua……..in fact there might be new things coming in every day . There are also a few Steampunk bracelets when I  can find them !

Thursday evening it’s open til 8pm, and in the ‘events’ area, on the  lower floor, there are planned poetry readings and  music. We were so pleased that Charlotte Reed came to sing last night, accompanied by her boyfriend (from the group 80 Quid) They were both terrific and it gave the basement a Speakeasy atmosphere !!

Saturday afternoons there are planned creative workshops – cardmaking, collage etc….
