Anyone who had a mooch and a browse at the Create Place's first ever Pop-Up shop would have found it hard to walk away without an armful of gorgeous goodies.. from printed cushions, to gorgeous cards, last Rolos, jewellery and hand-made knickers - not to mention the Letter Lounge providing opportunities to send a note to your loved one, this was a fabulous day of craft, collectivism and creative genius.

The pop-up had been arrange 'boutique style' in order to mix up the items from various sellers, it felt like a gorgeous shop with an ecclectic mix of high quality items and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming...

Pat & Frank Butcher cards sold out and here at Violet Iris Thrifty Towers we are wondering if these have been used as Valentine's cards....? Wonderful stuff... Violet Iris worked through the night, fuelled only by cheese and red wine in order to replenish the Pat & Frank stocks so as not to let down her lovely customers on Sunday...

The shop was so successful that they made a last minute decision to open on Sunday too! ♥ I also hear rumours that they are still selling some of the items from the pop-up on the spare shelf space around the workshop tables...

If you haven't been down to The Create Place yet it's on Old Ford Road near York Hall and the Gallery Cafe.. they have a free craft morning on a Wednesday too... check out their blog for more details and events www.backtobasicsartsandcrafts.blogspot.com and why not have brunch at the Gallery Cafe and a stroll through Victoria Park when you pop down...? ♥
