The Independent Interiors Show - 2022NQ Manchester

I recently volunteered my services to help out with a new event being showcased in the wonderful Northern Quarter in Manchester.  The Independent Interiors Show was put together by the rather lovely Rachel and Victoria.  I initially found out about the event through the wonderful world of twitter and added it to my calendar to make sure I was free to attend.  Then I thought, why not get involved.  So I did!

The day started early at the super on trend venue 2022NQ just off Dale Street in the Northern Quarter.  It was a smooth set up which involved lots of running back and forth up the basement stairs - resulting in a few aches the next day.  This effort was all worthwhile as each stand looked unique and beautiful.  It was a top notch selection of interiors and homewares.  Heaven!
Throughout the day there was a constant stream of happy shoppers coming through the doors.  They also got the chance to observe and/or take part in several demonstrations.  Sian of did some upcycling using Annie Sloane Chalk Paint.  Must give this a go!  And May Wild Ceramics did some pottery turning.  (Not sure if I'd have the steady hand for this, but they certainly made it look easy).

I got to chat with several of the vendors and I must say they were a lovely bunch.   So a big thanks to all for making helping out such a pleasure.
