A delightful day was spent last Saturday at the Crafty Fox Spring Market at the Dogstar Hotel in Brixton. I took the French & Godbold cards collection along in my trusty suitcase and set up shop. It was great day with a good number of sales and very encouraging feedback. Our tiny gift cards proved to be quite a hit. It was also a pleasure to spend my day sharing a stall with Mrs Gumi and her husband Tom, as well as chatting to lovely range of crafty artists. There was tea and cake, great atmosphere and visits from family and friends. A very pleasing day…
Saturday 10 December, French & Godbold will be selling their wares at the Hertford Vintage Fayre once again. We are looking forward to another day of good tunes, vintage treasures and tea and cakes. Rumour has it there will also be mulled wine, mince pies and even a little Tijuana Christmas to celebrate the joys of the festive season. The Vintage Fayre takes place at the Corn Exchange, 39 Fore St, Hertford SG14 1AL, 10am-4pm. Please come by and visit us if you’re in the area.
We are very excited to announce that French & Godbold greeting cards and tiny gift cards are now for sale at Things British in Kingly Court, London (just off Carnaby street). Things British is a newly opened boutique committed to promoting and supporting British designers and makers. The shop is filled with a beautiful range of products and we are delighted to be included. I highly recommend a visit to Kingly Court as it provides a treasure trove of wonders to explore.
French & Godbold officially launch today. Our shop is online. All our greetings cards are listed for sale at our new Etsy shop. Our website is running smoothly and we have even begun tweeting. We feel proud having reached this stage of our project. Its time to pop a cork and enjoy a celebration. We would love to know what you think, please leave a us comment.
Fine tuning and preparations are on the agenda at the French & Godbold Studio this week. Our card designs are all being prepared for our first print run. We have some old friends re-versioned, “Slugs Dream of Lettuce” (above) and some new delights to keep us all entertained. We get closer every day to our making our ideas into reality and we are looking forward to having all our work available through our website.
My French & Godbold website was born today, a new small pup of a site, still finding its feet in the big www. But looking lovely all the same. Soon it will house a shop, selling greetings cards designed by me and Richard. I am feeling many levels satisfaction.
