Newport Show, Shropshire

It was held at the Chetwynd Deer Park, and was a beautiful, bright sunny day, making a nice change from our recent experience at the nearby Staffordshire County Showground. Had loads of interest and got a few good orders, so well worth coming out to. Also we didn’t forget any part of our stand or display, which is pretty rare for us! I think there were probably about 10 000 people there, and we were constantly busy pretty much all day, so didn’t really get chance to have a look around ourselves. I did manage to get a quick photo of some recently shaven Alpacas, and look at a group of adorable little baby ducklings. The stand next to ours was a lady selling ‘doggy fish fudge’ and ‘liver cakes’ – sounds absolutely disgusting but she seemed to have a crowd of dogs and their owners around her for much of the day so fair enough I suppose – glad she did well! Our stand also was opposite the schools marquee, who for some reason thought it was appropriate for their orchestra to play ‘In the bleak mid winter’ repeatedly thoughout the day…

So we came back into the workshop yesterday with a massive long list of designs to do, the most unusual of which is a very rare bird called a Spoonbilled Sandpiper. So I’m looking forward to spending a day in bed drawing and designing! We’ve also got loads of floral art stands to be getting on with, some for a church in Gloucestershire, but mostly for a florist exhibiting at the RHS Tatton show next week.
