Rose and Violet visit France!

Rose and Violet travelled to France in April and set up our little pop-up shop in the beautiful town of Nantes. It was our first show in France, and we had a ball! We were invited to attend the very popular show Pour l'Amour du Fil - how could we say no? So we packed up our traveling suitcases of flowers and trims, and sent boxes across the seas to France… and voila… our little pop-up shop came alive in Nantes!

The show was so exciting, and such a creative space of design and wonder. From the amazing venue itself…

To the incredible exhibits and booths which filled the halls…

Not only was the show such an incredible experience, where we met such beautiful customers and made true friends. But Nantes itself was a treasure, and each day and night a new adventure was found…

We even passed a REAL castle every day on the train to work….

Another treasure of the show was the chance to hold small workshop classes every day, where we taught how to make floral accessories and decorate using our vintage velvet flowers and laces. We absolutely love our workshops, where we get to meet our customers and enjoy sharing creative passion and laughter and magic. We of course had to have an interpreter to help communicate but like always, we found that the language of design and creativity and human spirit is universal…

And yes… we will see you next year Nantes!!!! Miss Rose Sister Violet will be returning to France in 2015!
