It was s low start of the blocks for our first day at the Start Festival at
London’s ’s. Better than the last few days, yet hardly exemplary, the weather did at least look like it was going to behave itself for our set up. Kew Garden
We arrived at 9am and got to work.
By 10.30 there were a fair few people mulling and wandering around the site; the corner we were in was amongst some brilliant stalls: toys remade from recycled plastic, eco-bags, knit-a-thon, Project Dirt and much more.
We were treated to some pretty heavy rain throughout the day, (well it is August Bank Holiday), but we still made some sales, met some great people and got some good contacts.
Caroline from London Buzzing, in tandem with our stall, held Bee workshops for kids (making little bees from tree cones and dyed sheep’s wool), which went down storm! It really did create a ‘buzz’ around Beetroot Books!
More good stuff tomorrow we hope!
