Crafty Fox Market

French & Godbold at the Crafty Fox Spring Market in Brixton
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…

Christmas Exhibition


French & Godbold have just delivered a carousel of greetings cards, box sets and tiny gift tags to the Gravelly Barn Christmas Exhibition. The exhibition is open in Braughing, Hertfordshire, on the 25, 26, 27th November 2011 from 10.30am-4.30pm. Sadly French & Godbold are not able to attend in person as we will be snuggled down in a remote stone cottage on the Isle of Anglesey. Mmmm pleasing………

Pegboard Display

Our pegboard displays are looking lovely in their new white coats of paint. All ready for another day of trading at Old Spitalfields Market tomorrow. Pegboard is very pleasing in it’s combining of practicality and pattern. Our boards are going to look rather fetching with the red-tipped chrome hooks we have chosen. Come by to see us at the market if you are in East London.

Reconnaissance

A busy time at F&G last week. At Progressive Greetings Live on Wednesday, we were inspired by the generosity of the traders in sharing their knowledge and experience of the greetings card industry. Thanks to Helen, Danny, Joanna and Alec for some great conversations. Since then, Richard has been out and about showing our portfolio, receiving positive feedback and some definite interest from local retailers. We spent Sunday walking the aisles of many London markets, looking for the one we liked the most for a regular F&G stall. Sunday Up Market in the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane is the winner. We had a great day with many beautiful things to see, delightful people to speak to and amazing food to sustain us along the way. Perfect.

Saturday

French & Godbold are delighted to be previewing their new range of greetings card at the Hertford Vintage Fayre this Saturday 30th May. The Vintage Fayre takes place at the Corn Exchange, 39 Fore St, Hertford SG14 1AL, 10am-4pm. We had a great day the last time we attended, good music, great tea and cakes and good company. If you are in the area and wish to celebrate another special event this bank holiday weekend, please drop by for a visit.
