Brighton here I come (well at least for four weekends in the run up to Christmas. . .)
The lovely Maxine Michaelides who runs the online Stanley Road Store will be having an open house showcasing a range of artists at 25, Stanley Road, Brighton BN1 4NJ.
More information can be found here and nearer the time, on instagram @the_stanley_road_store
It will be open from 11-6 on the weekends of 25th November/2nd December/9th December and 16th December - I wont be there but some of my work and plenty of other gorgeous creations will be on show and for sale, so if you live in Brighton, may be worth going down there.
Delighted to have my 'catch of the Day' tableware range in this special Xmas pop up shop, celebrating the work of British artisan designers.
I met Linda Tait, the delightful lady behind the initiative, when she visited my stand at Top Drawer in September and promptly placed an order for the plates.
The store is full of a range of gorgeous gifts and is the key store for Xmas gift wrapping in Covent Garden.
Its on Floral Street - number 17 - in the same street as the likes of Agnes B, Paul Smith, Arket and the new concept store, Kent and Urwin.
I'm off to explore today. . .
The stuff of dreams and an incredibly exciting opportunity!
I've been invited to have a weekend Pop Up shop by the gorgeous West Elm store in Tottenham Court Road.
I'm planning to have a selection of both the upcycled vintage plates and tableware over the course of the weekend but will be updating on instagram nearer the time (@alijoedesigns)
I am incredibly excited about this - a first for me to be doing a trade show and a brilliant opportunity to share my tableware with the retail world.
And it was wonderful to have been selected to be part of the exclusive area, 'Spotted' - a destination area for new, exciting brands who have never done a trade show before.
As it is a trade show, it is not so easy to get tickets but let me know if you are interested in attending and I will see what I can do!
This is the second year for this fabulous event and although I can only attend for Friday evening, the market is on Saturday too.
It takes place at The Brighton Unitarian Church in New Road, Brighton and if last year is anything to go by, will be an event not too be missed.
A first time for me to be trading at the UK's biggest Community Arts Festival in the very local Crouch End.
It starts at around 10.30 and there is plenty to do and see as well as shop at the fair on the green outside the gorgeous Hornsey Town Hall.
As ever, it will be lovely to see you there is you can make it!
I have been privileged to do a few Crafty Fox Markets now which have mainly been in South London - now for the first time, I will be amongst 70 other awesome traders at Their Spring Market that is being held at The Oval Space in Bethnal Green.
The market runs from 11- 5 and the full address is:
29-32 The Oval
London E2 9DT
Love to see you there!
Excited and delighted to have been selected to exhibit at Handmade in Highgate - a new, local event at the fabulous space that is The Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution.
I'd love to see you if you can make it over the weekend - Friday evening is a private view where there is a £3 entry but everything will be 10% off. Otherwise, entry is free and will be open Saturday from 11-6 and Sunday 11-5.
