... and a 7am start on Saturday, we were finally ready to go.
It didn't take long for the customers to make their way in, and we were really touched by the warm welcome and lovely complements both on the stand and on our artwork.
Mind you this display was probably an arachnaphobe's worst nightmare!!
Sunday was much quieter but it was great to have the time and space to chat to people.
We even managed to pop out to the stadium cafe to sample their delicious home made lunches (at very reasonable prices), whilst the apprentice's apprentice tried her hand at the demo desk.
From the moment we arrived in Gateshead, at the stadium, at the hotel, at the event and when we went shopping or out to eat, we were surrounded by such lovely friendly people who couldn't have been more helpful. Truly a pleasure to exhibit here, and we are already looking forward to next year.
p.s. Kait did get a lovely lunch too!!
