Bloomfield & Rolfe were thrilled to have a stall at Chapel Allerton festival on Saturday, in the heart of Bloomfield's 'hood'. After a week of fretting about the weather, as I watched the torrential rain bounce off the windows day after day, the sun got its act together and blazed all afternoon. Little Bloomfield was in tow, remaining unphased by the loud fairground music behind us (the same can't necessarily be said for her mum). Yes, that's a ride, not an industrial skip!
All our products were on display and available to order. The undeniable hit were our new range of address stamps on their first outing (available now from www.bloomfieldandrolfe.com), and our range of wooden cards and postcards (soon to be available online). We also did a special souvenir Chapel Allerton hand-stamped card featuring the willow tree and old police station.
The only downside of the day was that I didn't have time to have a proper look around, although the woodland theme occasionally came past in the form of a be-garlanded infant. I was pleased to see Stacey on the Scamp stall with their super-cute screen printed vests. And I did manage to scoff some pad thai from Sukhothai (yum) and a divine lavender macaroon from Crust & Crumb - a picture of this confection would have been apt here, but the pleasure of eating it was too much!
