Not many people will say that they went to a trade show and left feeling very positive about the future. This was me on Tuesday of this week when I went to the British Craft Trade Fair in Harrogate, Yorkshire.
On first thoughts a trade fair doesn’t fill me with joyous rapture but to see a trade show who’s sole endeavour was to promote British Craft people and their work was magic.
Stand upon stand was filled with the work of some really talented people whom live and trade within the British Isles. These crafts people filled my heart with pride and soon there will be a section of this website dedicated to these people because I am going to make some purchases and offer their magnificent pieces of arts and crafts to you.
There will still be the range of products that I make on the site such as more lighting, cushions and soft furnishings and the latest addition will be handmade lampshades which I have learnt to make, thanks Jo. There will also be the collectable pieces of my late mother which started this journey a few years ago.
