We packed up our latest handmade fancies, braved the festival mud and set up shop in the very pink Secret Emporium tent at this year's Lovebox festival.The Secret Emporium is an enchanting indoor market that has been spotted at several British festivals this summer, including The Secret Garden Party and Bestival. The organisers pack it full of up and coming artists, jewelery, accessory and clothing designers and have been doing a fantastic job of promoting new UK talent.
After three days we were pooped! Selling undies to slightly sozzled cider drinking festival goers can be very hard work ; ) We made up for it by inviting those who had got caught in the rain storm in to our tent for an indoor rave with team IYP and the other traders. Chair dancing included.
We made friends with two great designers on either side of us. St Saviours hats, who are now selling their wears in Topshop's flagship store on Oxford Street and Decadorn, a lovely lady who makes jewelery out of feathers. Decadorn can be found on Spitalfields weekend market or in Anthropology.
We also had a little help from Miss Crofton and BannBee, who supplied their us with their latest ranges. Thanks ladies!
Here's how we got on...
