Pulse London 2015 - best bits

at this year’s pulse london show we were next door to louise from wini-tapp - a company making puppets and mobiles, and when i got home Albi loved making his articulated badger with me. I did wonder (but kept forgetting to ask) about why the company was called wini tapp - and found out from the website that it’s after louise’s grandmother, which is really lovely…

another stand I liked was la de da living (what a great name), and they had some great looking carnival letters.

I had a look at their site when I got home and realised that not only are they sisters running a business (like we are), but also they’re based in Cheltenham (so nice and close), and they specialise in hand stamped vintage cutlery

a book on one page (a print made up from the words from one whole book!) is a brilliant looking idea - you can get the moomins, james & the giant peach, paddington and miffy!

there were some lovely products on lollipop’s stand - and my favourites were their napkins that fold to make animal’s faces - so very sweet!

i loved all the colour on ark’s stand…they produce a range of soft leather items (purses, iPad cases, pencil cases, cosmetic pouches & leather bags) in a rainbow of colours.

and i loved the use of old windows as part of dassie’s stand - they sell products that are eco friendly and fair trade…
