On Thursday 5th November the Village Toy Company held a Christmas Shopping Night to raise funds for Stamford Park Infants School Parents Group and I was invited to take along some of my British baby wear to sell.
It was lovely to meet so many friendly and enthusiastic parents, several of whom were also independent traders like Kate from Little Knitted Stars who is always very helpful and full of good advice. She crochets tiny hearts, stars and flowers and adds them to headbands and hair clips – very sweet!
Our bestsellers were our embroidered velcro bibs – especially the boats, hot air balloons and pink elephants. I have just started to package my bibs a little differently by mounting them on card and sealing them in cellophane which seems to appeal more to my customers. Please see quick snap below!
