Preparing to Pop-Up!

It's been a while, blog readers.  I've been busy making lists and checkin' 'em twice for my pop-up shop at The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th November.

I'm on a beg, steal and borrow to kit out my 2m x 2m space.

So far I have planned borrow:

A proper shop mannequin
A tailor's dummy
Two of the same pedestal tables from different people
A hand (not a favour, an actual fake hand)
A little table for me to work at

So far I have begged:
Photos from customers wearing my designs (send them to
A day each from various of my pals to 'play shop' with me
A lift from my parents on set up/clear away days in their big car
Ideas of how to display certain bits of jewellery
7" records for top tiers on my cake stands:

So far I have stolen:
Boxes from work that paper is delivered in
That's it so far, I'm too honest for this stealing malarky

So far I have bought:
Some fabric to use as a table cloth on one of the pedestals (how cool?):

So I'm in full swing making shizzle for the four-day event. All the old favourites and a few other bits and bobs. More on that soon...
