Heart to Home exhibit at Burghley Horse Trials 2012
Good morning! We’re just back from the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials where we were once again exhibiting within the Country Living Pavilion. What a weekend! We love this event: it’s usually the final “country” show of the year for us and a really exciting, fun and energetic crowd. This year was no different. Were you there? If so, we hope you had a fantastic time. If not, we hope our round up of pictures and stories will give you a flavour of what it’s like to visit Burghley. And perhaps we’ll see you there next year?
The Country Living Pavilion was home to lots of independent British designers and artisans, and we think our stand (and our ethos) fitted right in. As you know, we love to stock gorgeous designs and products for the home, from beautiful prints and linens to the loveliest ceramics and pottery. This year, we decided to give our stand a new focus, with our Susie Watson kitchen and dining room products taking centre stage. They went down very well! Sandra did a fantastic job not only of designing the stand but of actually putting it together, using Susie Watson fabric and pretty “British Summer” touches. We made sure to take lots of horse and dog-themed items with us, like this lovely horse mug and our black labrador ceramics range, which always go down a treat with the Burghley crowd!
The stand looked wonderful, very in keeping with the show, and everyone who visited seemed to enjoy spending time with us. We had some great feedback about the stand and the items we’d brought with us. In fact, some of the items were so well-received that we had to put in an emergency order at the end of the first day so we could restock
Now Burghley is over, we won’t be exhibiting at another show until November (The Good Food Show). But we won’t be resting on our laurels: we’ve got our first catalogue to finish off (it really is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to send it out to you in the post or give it to you in the shop), and of course we are moving home! Our relocation to Wetherby is almost complete, so there will be lots of exciting work to do on the shop before our grand opening.
