450 miles, 5 stools, 4 chairs, 3 dinners, 2 girls, 1 Market.
Down in London town! Took the chairs, bunting and cushions on a roadtrip with the lovely Emily as my assistant for the day. To celebrate the launch of her third book Selina Lake hosted a market event at Hanbury Hall in Spitalfields. I met lots of lovely people and ate a LOT of cake. I met the lovely Mel from Mel Made This (check out her stuff, its ace) and Abigail and Ryan from Abigail*Ryan. (They helped me find a coffee - thanks guys)
We also had a chat with the lovely girls Lara and Helena from Mollie Makes, guys, if you ever want to put me in your mag, that would definitely be OK. Also thanks to the nice carpark attendant man. He was a dude and saved the day (well,saved my arms from carrying chairs a long way anyway.)Dinner at a south Indian Veggie restaurant Jai Krishna in Haringey followed by breakfast in Boulangerie Bon Matin sufficiently fuelled the chat - tank to power me back to North Wales. Job Done.
