On Saturday I exhibited my homewares at Home Is In The North, a brand new interiors pop up event run by The Social Butterfly. It was a delight to see hundreds of visitors piling into the impressive Halle St Peters venue, in Ancoats, Manchester, for a day of design inspiration and shopping!
It’s always a joy to attend these events, and the atmosphere at Home Is In The North is one of the best I’ve experienced. Visitors were in high spirits and full of praise about the range of products on show by each indie business/designer. There was also a great camaraderie between the exhibitors, particularly as many of us had met up before the event for the pop-up photo shoot around the city.
If you were unable to attend the event here’s a little recap of what the day had in store.
