boy, did we have fun at blogtacular
Saturday saw us take The Hambledon to the inaugural Blogtacular, a blogger event held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain in West London. Faced with the challenge of presenting the store in 1m sq market stall space in the foyer, we decided to keep it simple, opting for our vintage display counter filled with multi-coloured poms and a countertop stacked with our Italian Chiaverini jam.
All set to go with a serious caffeine injection, the next eight hours whizzed by in a flurry of excitement. We sold a vast quantity of jam, which proved to be a total hit; snaffled some beautiful Meringue Girls meringues; listened to some seriously inspiring speakers; tweeted and instgrammed non-stop, got a big hug from the lovely Yvonne Eijkenduijn of Yvestown; partook in a hands-on styling session with the super talented Ellie Tennant; and made lots and lots of lovely new blogger friends. Wow, what a day!
