Ally Pally Spring 2012

This is our stand at Ally Pally last weekend just before the show opened. I don't think we would have got it finished in time had it not been for all the help we had from two of our DT, Gillian & Nicky, who came along on both Friday afternoon and Saturday morning when they could have been off enjoying themselves.

I so wish we had stopped to take some photos of the outside of the building and the fantastic views over the city, but we had so many stamp plates to unpack and hang, panic took over!

This turned out to be the last outing of our pre 2012 Hero Arts designs and I hope all the ladies who bought them have great fun with their bargains - I've now got wall space in the store for new stamps so a win win all round.

This was a rare sighting - you didn't really think I would let them take my photo did you! - of me at the demo desk as for the first time I was able to go shopping at a show.....for stamps. Well, what else would I be buying :0)

We were very fortunate to have Nicky demonstrating Pan Pastels so I had a lovely weekend chatting to customers old and new, and despite what the Headmaster says the till was only out by 30p at the end of the show proving I can multitask.

We had a great time in the wonderful company of Gillian & Nicky, we met lots of people whom we had only previously 'met' online so, roll on September when we hope to be back on the same spot but perhaps with a smidge more space.

On Wednesday we are off to the Stitch and Creative Craft show at the royal Bath & West showground at Shepton Mallet so if you are down that way do drop by stand A50 and say hello xx


  1. It was lovely to meet you and Gillian & Nicky, and I could have spent a fortune... maybe in September! Helen (aka stampingbyh)

  2. For anyone that wants to see Val hop over to my blog as there is a pic there lol

    Had an amazing time, and would happily do it all again, hoping to come and annoy on fri or sat if i can get my taxi, er i mean other half to bring me lol

  3. The stand looks fabulous and I so wish I could have seen it or even helped a bit .......... with the donkey work not the demoing, lol! Panic would definitely have set in if I tried that ;0). Can't wait to see you at HSNW although I suspect you'll be even more short of space for all the lovely goodies you sell.
