It’s Friday and I’m bagged. Week 16: Have hat, will travel.Posted: 14/05/2010
Grab a coffee or tea and join us each Friday, to learn how these Soak worthy bags came to be. Are you bagged? Send us your favorite bag. If we feature it here, we’ll send you a Soak gift pack, in a pretty bag, of course!
It is a hectic Friday at the Soak office. I leave tonight for the UK. While the main purpose of our trip is pleasure (fantastic family wedding in a castle!), I’m also meeting up with Alice Yu our new National Account Manager, UK for the yarn market. We’re really excited to have Alice join us as part of our team.
While there, we’re planning on a visit to Loop, where we’ll be hanging out with owner Susan Cropper. We’ll be bringing treats for the grand opening of their new shop on June 12- on Camden Passage, in Islington, London. Their new address, in case you are in town after June 12th, will be 15 Camden Passage, Islington, London N1 8EA.
I’ll also be meeting Robynn, of the extraordinary shop Purlescence, as well as the ladies from the make lounge. How exciting! I’m sure there will be many other stops (Liberty of London, V&A museum) that will delight my senses and satisfy my need to rummage through textiles and other fun finds.
Speaking of rummaging, back to the above mentioned wedding. I’ll be sporting my favorite navy and white dress and shoes, only this time adding a bit of British flair to the outfit with my new (and lovely) hat.
I found this and other fine works of millinery last weekend when Karyn, Chris and I trekked to Brimfield Massachusetts for the Brimfield Antique Market. We walked through miles of antiques, textiles and treasures to find unique items and treats.
Sometimes a hat box is better than a bag. This striped one is the perfect way to protect my new hats, one of which is already packed away for travels.
