A long weekend! (part 1)

I have just about recovered from Tatty’s busiest weekend ever!  3 days at Denby Pottery Summer Food and Gift Fayre and a Pride Park Wedding Fayre in the middle!

Although I am now shattered and in urgent need or re stocking, I had a fabulous time!  Thanks as always go to my amazing family as I couldn’t have done it without them! Xxx

Here are some photos of my stand at Denby.  The new vintage style necklaces proved to be best sellers so they are first on the list to be re stocked (ready for Christmas.............eek!)  I had some great feedback from some lovely customers which makes the early starts and chilly mornings worthwhile!

Thanks to everyone that came along!

As I said, I have been busy and here is the proof...... (pic taken with instagram, my new favourite toy!)

These are 18’’ necklaces, featuring a small stampbord charm, acrylic dahlia bead, metal charm and carefully chosen co-ordinating bead.  I’ve done a selection of colours to start with on a mixture of antique brass and gunmetal chains.  I’ll be taking these along to the Summer Food and Gift Fayre at Denby Pottery this bank holiday weekend.
I aim to keep one for myself but I just can't decide which one, I may need more time to think about this!

Busy, busy!

After a fun and relaxed start to the week, the hard work starts now!  This weekend is set to be a busy one for Tattered Rose!  I’ll be at Denby Pottery Summer Food and Gift Fayre on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  I’ll also be at the Pride Park Stadium Wedding Fayre on Sunday!  Obviously I can’t be in two places at once so this is only possible because I have a VERY helpful and supportive family! 

I will personally at Denby on Saturday and Monday and for all of the brides I’ll be at Pride Park on Sunday, armed with a variety of Tattered Rose hair accessories, jewellery and other delights!  

If you’re getting married and want some special, unique accessories, come along and have a chat.  I have a selection of ready to wear pieces or I can create something completely bespoke just for you.

Sheffield shoot

I’ve just arrived home from a great day in Sheffield.  I took part in a photo shoot along with some fabulous wedding industry people.  Above is a tiny sneak peek of some Tattered Rose sparkle amongst some heavenly pearls and vintage loveliness provided by Darby and Joan.  I don’t want to give too much away as I’m sure when the official photos arrive, they will be brilliant! this space!

Ok, so I’d better explain myself and my absence!  I’m afraid I don’t have a very good or valid excuse but here goes!

This is my first year of working in the world of weddings, I decided back in January (as a new year’s resolution I suppose) to put my handmade specialist wedding accessories out there.  I never expected it to take off as fast and as well as it did. I’ve had the chance to work with lots of lovely brides and made some great connections with other wedding professionals.  So hitting my first ‘wedding season’ with a bit of a bang and a huge pile of orders was a little bit of a surprise!  After completing the bulk of the orders and dispatching them to many happy brides I was ready for my summer holiday!

Off we went for a relaxing week (I packed my laptop with all of the best intentions!) but it never once came out of the case! When we got home, I had to get back into the old routine which I found quite difficult hence no blogging............................until now!

I have been really busy preparing for fairs, working on more orders but I just haven’t written about them so we have a lot of catching up to do!!
