I gave myself a night off blogging. To recover from my somewhat disappointing experience on Sunday at Craft in the City (I only sold one thing).
I’m over it now and back in the swing of things.
So I popped into town, for a spot of Christmas shopping. And also to drop a few more items into the Zoo pop-up shop at the Lace Market Gallery whilst I was there.
And I can tell you, it looks totally fab.
The gallery is a generous white space with great light. The display tables are made from old doors – which look brilliant!
Dotted about, like beautiful decorations adorning a Christmas tree, are a smattering of really lovely things.
It’s something I’ve been considering about my stall.
And also my living room, which used to look nice, but to my eye these days now looks a bit crammed.
Anyway, one thing in particular drew me like a moth to a flame…
A rail of vintage clothes. With some rather pretty frocks peeping out…
Particularly as I was utterly enchanted by these original antique Nottingham Lace pattern sheets…
There are even some frocks left on that rail. Despite their being fantastically bargainous.
A girl needs a little something for a trip to the big city, doesn’t she? As the song goes: “hey, little girl, better wear something pretty, something you’d wear to go to the City”.
Less than a week to go - London here we come! I actually can’t wait – squeeeee!
The Zoo pop-up shop at the Lace Market Gallery will be open weekdays until December 19th.
Do pop in if you’re in Nottingham. It’s a bit tucked away, but if you manage a visit you certainly won’t regret it.
Unless, perhaps, you too get more than you bargained for… and bankrupt yourself on lovely things. ♥
