Roundabout's pop-up shop appears at a wide variety of events from craft fairs to garden shows. I update the list below as I book them, so do check back.
You can also find a selection of the current reversible dresses in the shop at Blenheim Palace and Dunster Living in the High Street, Dunster
This is a new event for Roundabout and I have heard only good things about it. According to the website it is now "one of the most prestigious handmade and vintage events in the country!" It's certainly in a great location and it will be good to be indoors; it snowed the first weekend in March last year. Entry is free and you may need to allow a couple of hours to browse. It's a different type of event for me, but I love vintage and will be on the look out for something to wear to the Goodwood Revival later in the year.
I will also be launching a new initiative in honour of "Old Stuff Day" which is on Saturday 2 March.
This will be my third year at the Spring Fair. Ally Pally is a great venue with parking and easy access for exhibitors and visitors. It's a great start to the new season, it's bright and fresh and there is a lovely atmosphere, a real buzz. Lots of exhibitors will be showing their new Spring/Summer ranges for the first time; you will be able to see the new fabrics for the Roundabout reversible dresses and shorts as well as this year's colours for the summer knitwear.
The Roundabout stand is B9, just inside the main hall (same position as last year).
This is a very big traditional craft show featuring hundreds of designer/makers and lots to do for a great family day out. There are demonstrations, workshops you can book in advance and lots of things you can make on the day. It's a great opportunity to try out your art and craft skills. And there's lots of shopping.... all the products are made by hand in the UK and range from exquisite jewellery to tasty jams, sculpture and art in every imaginable medium, leatherwork, textiles.... too many to list!
I will be running a draw for members of my Email Club to win tickets, so sign up to the newsletter to make sure you don't miss the chance to enter..
The beautiful market town of Arlesford is the venue for a huge street festival. Over 80 stalls showcase local food and drink producers as well as arts, crafts, clothing and lifestyle products. There is a procession along the main street at 10.30 am and a full programme of other entertainers and peformers throughout the day. For the young, there are circus skills workshops and other activities; for foodies, well known chefs demonstrate watercress inspired dishes. And if you're feeling up to it, you can also enter the World Watercress Eating Championship, as featured in the Guiness World Book of Records.
