This one shows us starting to get the tags in the window yesterday evening. They were my idea for a way of making a great cohesive window, with such diverse products as a jewellery designer, maker of handmade chocolate, cosmetics company, a designer / illustrator, shoe seller, and boxer shorts and waistcoats made from industry scrap fabrics. My idea was made into reality by resident designer / illustrator Holly Francesca doing the computer work, my dad and his extra big printer printing them out, and the magic of Spraymount and foam board and a little grosgrain ribbon. Best of all, people were stopping by the window and reading them, and even yesterday were asking when we opened!
Here's my little store with in a store. Just by the window, so great light and the silver and aquamarines just sparkle.
The finished window in daylight. Ah shame - my sparkly fairy lights don't show up in this pic.
The reality is, footfall is low at this end of town, but those who make it in - love it. Some have seen the PopUp in different incarnations, and make a point of coming each time it changes, to see what's new in store. The best comment from a customer today... 'Selfridges has come to Richmond!'
I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the store. It has a really relaxed atmosphere, and we have lots of time to catch up for a chat!
2 Kew Road, Richmond, October 1 - 14th, 9 - 6 every day, except Sundays when we close at 4.00.
