Pop-Up Shop

Our Pop-Up Shop has expanded :-)
The space next to us became available so we now have twice as much room! 
We're very lucky because hardly any spaces have come back up for rent since it opened and when the one Right Next Door emptied we thought we'd go for it!
Ready for a gazillion photos?
standing in the new space looking at the original space
 the new space (to the left of our old space)
 the new space means we have tonnes more room for fabric - there are 400+ fat quarters on that table!
 felt corner has expanded
 and now there's a whole table full of buttons
 the giant 'dolls house' shrank a touch to fit the hang-display unit on the right hand side
 I hope this stays nice and tidy :-)
 We've still got some more stock to put in there and fill it out a bit more - I completely under-estimated quite how much stock we'd need to fill all the new space!
 I love how the whole building has been left un-touched ... crumbly walls and uneven floors - and I love the curved ceiling - it's like a cave :-)
 That big cream & black bit behind the Handmade display is the back of our cupboard (it's full of kits, you can see the pretty side in the 1st photo) and there will be something pretty covering that by the end of the day!!

 It took John and I four hours to set it all up - not bad going!  and because we were there for so long we got to meet some of our customers - one lady & gentleman had travelled from Sidmouth for a day out and thought they'd pop in and see the shop - hopefully they came back after their lunch and saw it looking a lot prettier than when they saw us mid-way through the set up and the whole lot was in boxes and a bit of a *mess* :-)
