Last week we had a stand at the New Forest and Hampshire 3 Day County Show and what a week it was! There was good weather forecast and it certainly didn't disappoint, with temperatures reaching 30 during the day. It was very nice to be greeted with blue skies and sunshine rather than the typical British summer!
Situated inbetween the charming villages of Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst, the showground was full of wonderful displays, food tents and various other stalls that suited any taste. The hot weather made it difficult to walk around for long periods but there were plenty of ways to recoup some energy! Unfortunately, when we arrived, our marquee was positioned in the wrong direction. Thankfully, the event organisers were very helpful, swiftly correcting the mistake and we were good to go.
It was our first trip down to Hampshire but we will certainly be going back, as we met a lot of lovely people, who in turn, appreciated our handmade goods and placed orders across the 3 days. Making it's debut at the show was our Vulcan Living Edge Table (pictured) which was snapped up almost immediately. We sold lots of Harris Tweed dining chairs, wing chairs and sofas in various fabrics and leathers.
There were lots of local people and others who travelled a long way to attend the show and if you were one of those nice people who saw us, we thank you for making the show what it was - we had an absolute blast. We hope that we see you again!
