Open studios - Part 1 my little caravan shop

This weekend I've been taking part in an open gardens/open studio event and I have to say it was absolutely glorious both the weather and the event itself. I have to say at this point due to the amount of photos I've taken I'm going to split this post into 4 parts for easier reading, so stay tuned...


A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Mariette Voke and Nigel Lambert inviting myself and a local jewellery maker - Andrea Davis to open up little shops at their open studio event this weekend. I jumped at the chance, and I'm so glad I did because I've had a wonderful time meeting new friends and getting to know others better.

My shop was situated in the couples cute 1950's caravan, which everyone was admiring. It's so tiny that I'm sure that when the bed is made up it is literally a bed in a box! We all want one now.        




The interior is basic but cosy with vintage fabric on the seats and at the windows.  



My display area was at the other end of the caravan.




 I'm really please with how the weekend went for me but to be honest if I hadn't sold a single thing I would have been happy just being there. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to Andrea who is lovely and made me giggle throughout the weekend. If you get a chance pop along to her web site because the jewellery she creates is so colourful and more importantly wearable. She's sure to have something to tickle your fancy!  I'll show you some of her work in a post coming up. 


I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and that the sun has been shining down on you.

  11. That 1950’s caravan is a not-so-ordinary sight! The interior is indeed small, but hey, it looks very cozy, welcoming, and functional! The crafts you made were just perfect for the classic appeal of the trailer. I love everything about it! =]
