A couple of weeks back I went to the Suffolk Blogger Meet arranged by @DaisyXXO. Held in Bury St Edmunds, a place I have zero knowledge of, I was pleased/relieved that Clashing Time offered to give me a lift. We met up with Life's A Catwalk and Loved By Laura and after a mini mare due to all the car parks being closed (!!) arrived at the venue only a little late to see what the what was.
Inside we were greeted with cookies, chocolates and a smiling if slightly nervous looking Daisy. Stall holders happily chatted away to whomever approached them, their smile never wavering as we rearranged their products for our countless photos. The only slight annoyance was the venue was rather dark which meant it didn't lend itself to wonderful images with tons of natural light. This did become a conversation starter though and I got to meet a couple of fantastic ladies running their dream businesses. **Queue a little free publicity for those gorgeous indie traders**
Ivy Joan are a new company selling all manner of cute interior furnishings. Their soft and cosy blankets were a real hit, perfect for snuggling under on forthcoming predictably damp winter days. So too were the framed letters but as you can see from the below picture, they know their market!
The Charity Candle Company are just that, beautiful candles that you can purchase safe in the knowledge you are helping one of four totally worthwhile charities. The scents were mellow yet fragrant and prices being between £2.50 and £8.00 meant these beauties pretty much sell themselves, especially in the run up to Christmas.
|And try not to touch suicidal frames!|
About time too!
Have you found that blogger events are spilling out from London to the smaller cities?
