Its a week on and i am now suffering the comedown from a most amazing event. Shall park to one side that both myself and Lorna have ended up on Antibiotics and i’ve been back having ECG’s and blood sugar tests again but we survived, if only just.
Anyway people of Hertford & Ware what a night, we had over 160 people visit over the course of 2 days in The Creative Sanctuary, we had a queue outside a Haberdashery shop in a market town and for that i was proud! But what left me in tears after (yes i went home and had a massive blub) was the overwhelming sense of support and fun that women can offer each each other, i watched women offering fashion advise, sharing stories of their struggles with PND and their fashion loves and mistakes. The atmosphere was electric and the Prosecco was flowing, for which we will be forever grateful to both The Oak Room and The Creative Sanctuary for providing more when supplies were beginning to run low and letting us use their amazing space!
For anyone that’s wondering it takes a huge amount of time and effort to organise the Pop Up nights – around 4 months in total from when we pick a date to the final payment being made. But we love hosting them, and we love seeing clothes being re-homed and for me it took alot of courage to go from one little idea to the nights we now run. Standing by me has been a great friend who without her marketing skills and faith it would have been a very different event, but also many other local ladies, friends and businesses who get involved and help make the Rock Up Frock Up Pop Up a night to not be missed. Also we must not forget that a percentage of sales goes to the wonderful Butterfly Community which supports local women with Post Natal Depression. Invaluable support by local women for local women.
