Gift Wrapping ‘Live’ in the windows at Liberty

One of my favourite stores is Liberty located in the heart of London. The iconic building is located just off bustling Regent Street. We were over the moon when Liberty decided to stock our range of ribbons last year.

I am delighted to be involved with their forthcoming ‘Get Creative’ event which will showcase their designers, artisans and makers. Already Stella McCartney, Etsy and Rosie Wonders have signed up to be involved.

Their Christmas shop is one of the best in London and the surrounding streets are always bustling and their windows attract crowds from around the world, so it will no doubt be a buzzing atmosphere.

I will be inspiring passers-by with really handy gift wrapping techniques and plenty of ideas for Christmas. Already I have put together a mood board for the window to give you a taste of what is to come. Their Christmas products on the 4th floor are incredible so pop in and see the collections.

Wrapping at the Country Living Fair

13 years ago I decided to take the huge plunge and book a small stand at the Country Living Spring Fair.  At the time I had a small business working from the kitchen table and my first fair not only cost a months work, but terrified me as I was only used to exhibiting my work at local craft fairs in Lincolnshire, and taking on small jobs

Suddenly I was thrust in to the London arena with my first experience of national press.  Country Living Magazine spotted me and asked if I would do the gift wrapping service at their shows.  I hadn’t done it before but was willing to give it a go.  I trained friends up for the first Christmas Fair, and was fine until I saw the crowd control barriers being erected by my wrapping desk!

The gift wrapping service was a great success with some of the exhibitors and organisers bringing their gifts too.  It was a great feature where the public could watch their gifts being wrapped and learn the odd trick.

Several years later I was asked to do Gift Wrapping Demonstrations which were extremely popular and would often cover how to wrap really awkward shapes that I found at the show

As well as the wrapping desk, we have thousands of ribbons for sale and I love to handpick unusual decorations and accessories from around the world.  One of my favourite events is the Country Living Christmas Fair where I have got to know the staff at the Business Design Centre and love that first impression (usually wow) when I walk in to the show, and see such beautiful stands.

The team really know how to put on a good show, year after year crowds flock in and we welcome back our regulars and speak to new press who are looking for a good storyline. At this show I was interviewed for Gulf radio based in Qatar!

 

As exhibitors we also are able to mingle with fellow standholders and organisers over a glass or two at the exhibitors party which always goes down a storm.

Since then I have pretty much done every show, and it’s once of the first things to go in the diary.  Over the years Country Living Magazine have featured me many times and I’m forever grateful that the show helped me get to where I am today. It has also been a great platform to promote my Gift Wrapping DVD

 

My next stop is the Country Living Fair in Glasgow, where I will also be dressing the Winter Cabin which is a show feature.  With only a 3 hour window to do this, I am being tested to the limit but know it will be fine (and will feature this in my next post).

If you haven’t ever visited the Country Living Fairs, it’s a shopping experience that shouldn’t be missed.  Just make sure that you have comfy shoes, and book early for Saturdays as they are usually sold out weeks beforehand!
