We're here - at Harrogate!


So this is it, this is what you get - a blank box worth in excess of a thousand pounds!


The bit of the show I was really dreading was carrying everything in to our stand but it was very organised and with a porter's help, only took the 3 of us a few trips! Of course it decided to start raining the minute we started to unload!



So stand F20A is my home for the next 4 days - think I'll try and take my stand label home with me as a little memento!


The card hall is in the basement and was surprisingly empty. I was worried that a lot the stands would be complete and that arriving on the Saturday we would be late setting up - but by the time we left we still had NO neighbours at all!




So, here it is - stand complete!



and I must say I'm very pleased with it!




Had a mild panic when the hooks I'd bought wouldn't fit over the back boards but that's why I brought Jeff my husband - sent him off for some cup hooks and used my spare supply of ribbon and major catastrophe avoided!


Already I'm thinking of next year and having a slightly larger stand! But for now it's time to find somewhere to go and eat and park the car!
