Another trade show has passed by, this time was in the weaving July heat and literally climbing through the streets of Harrogate. Fun nonetheless, but it did make us very grateful for those who have come out in the heat wave to visit all the traders at the fair - we realized it must have been exhausting on your part.
I would like to thank all the existing costumers who visited us and all the new contacts made at the show. I hope you have enjoyed our expanded Christmas range and are busy selling at our shops during the summer.
For those who could not make the show, here are a few photos taken at our stand (we tested with blue paint instead of grey this time, the result is interesting...):
I am back to the studio now, ready to dispatch all the orders and meanwhile, manage to finish a few book titles that I would like to recommend for your holiday ahead. They are all kind of short and fun read (even if sad they will not be depressing enough to weigh down your summer mood, trust me) that I have picked up this year among the busy hours running the business, and hope you will enjoy them too:
1. Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki, Haruki Murakami
2. Playing to the gallery, Grayson Perry
3. Naomi, Junichiro Tanizaki
4. Guy de Maupassant's short stories
5. In praise of shadow, Junichiro Tanizaki
6. Snow Country, Kawabata.
(I have a thing for Japanese literatre, I know I know)
And last but not least, enjoy the summer that is already on our doorstep and we wish you the best of time!
