The Spirit of Summer Fair is the seasonally appropriate twin to the Spirit of Christmas, it is a beautiful fair in Olympia with the most amazing interior, lifestyle, fashion and accessories stands, this year I am really excited as I have a stand at the show, and best of all it is next door to the champagne bar which is run by Mosimann's.
You can read all about the Spirit of Summer here.
And see my listing here..
If you are interested in coming to the show, I have 20 tickets to give away, since I have never done this before and have no idea how many people a. read this or b. are free to come to London between 15 and 18 May, I am assuming that anyone who wants one can have one.
In order to get a ticket all you need to do is'Follow' me on this blog and then email your name and address to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send one to you. The tickets are £16 each usually so it is worth clicking the button if you were even considering visiting the show!
If you can get together a group of friends you could do a 'Follow' each, it is the perfect event for a group of girls (but leave husbands at home as the sound of thousands of women's voices is most men's idea of hell!)
If I do get a surprisingly high take up, I will do a draw, but I think the odds will still be pretty high that you will be successful!
The nice thing about the show is that there is no high street presence, so you don't feel that you have seen it all before. It showcases those niche manufacturers who supply boutiques and online stores, but here they are selling direct and often at much cheaper prices. Every one chats and is really friendly and laid back, albeit it is almost an episode of Midsommer Murders come to life.
What I love about it is that when you leave, you feel like you have been hanging out in a country house, watching a cricket match on the lawn, getting dressed up for lunch and drinking a few glasses of fizz. Doesn't feel like a day of shopping at all!
