A warm thank you to all the people who came to the Giggy & Bab stand at the recent Country Living Spring Fair at Alexandra Palace in north London, your charm and enthusiasm made it a pleasure.

Giggy & BabThe Hornsey stool once again proved a hit with the fairgoing public. Delightful youngsters, tall handsome chaps, pretty ladies in lovely frocks - all were snapped atop them, and many others tried them out and admired them.

Sitting on them with feet firmly planted on the bottom step was declared very comfortable, and good for the posture. Climbing up them, they were pronounced steady and sturdy. Steps were swung in and out with appreciation. Children clambered up on them the minute they saw them. Fond memories of parents’ and grandparents’ step stools were exchanged. Interesting uses for them were suggested.

Giggy & BabParticular thanks go to customers Lucy, Nicola, Jane and Kay, who came to the stand especially to say hello and wax lyrical about how much they love their Hornsey stools and how useful they are.

Finally, a big up for my fellow standholders. What a talented and super bunch of people. Impossible to do them all justice but here is a selection. Emma of sells bold accessories, including that amazing necklace she’s wearing in the photo here. Kim of hand paints her range of cute ceramics. Paula of is a talented artist selling mainly animal pictures, some of them cleverly embellished with embroidery.

Lottie of sells gorgeous linen wares printed with her artwork, including lobsters, turnips, leeks and lemons. Emilia Hunt (find her on Etsy) prints her lovely designs onto a range of items including my fave, oven gloves printed with Brussels sprouts. Laima of imports from Lithuania high quality linen goods in a range of soft neutrals. Anne and Sarah of make fabulous aprons, fisherman’s smocks and shifts in linen of rich hues. Gabrielle of sells a range of clothes she makes in soft cottons and silks in vibrant prints, including lush nightwear.
