Had a lovely tea on Saturday with Mandy from Belle & Boo and Louise from Battenberg. It's really lovely to catch up (in person!) with other etsy folk, people who understand where you're coming from and who know your Ashley G from your Lisa Congdon! I'm really in awe of where Mandy is going with her business. She's managing to keep a handmade vibe and beautiful quality while steadily growing. I think she's going to be big.

Today, during a Topshop mission, I popped into Howies in Carnaby Street to take pics of Lu's entry for the Howies/Folksy competition for her.
And I got a free folksy ruler for my trouble!
