I just got back from exhibiting at Country Living Christmas Fair in Harrogate.
I took my lamps, wallpapers, fabrics and my new golden yellow daisy meadow chair.
I enjoyed having some wintry foliage on my stand made by the lovely Sarah from Simply by Arrangement.
Decorating my sign with the springs of fir and eucalyptus and all sorts of other bits that chose for me was my favourite bit of set up!
Everyone who stood in front of my stand was bathed in the golden glow of my lamps and it was so nice to meet so many lovely people.
I was behind the counter bathing in the glow of so many compliments about my work!
I heard so many stories from customers about how they are enjoying my lamps. One lady said her 94 year old mother has one. She just sits in her chair all day but always asks to have the lamp switched on so she can enjoy it. Some people collect them and have bought over the internet but never in person. It was great to meet them.
Many people recognised my work from the Country Living article and said they read it word for word and were very inspired. I can't ask for more than that.
This show had the perfect audience for me and being among them for four days has really inspired me, reaffirming that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. That I am shining my light in the world and that people are feeling its glow. I feel very lucky.
Thanks to everyone who came and said hello and said all those nice things to me and giggled like joyful children while we wrapped up their lamps. It's been lovely. I can't do the show next year but I hope to be back the year after!
