I am SO excited to announce that, as of the end of October, my work will be available to buy on one of the prettiest streets in Norwich, in one of the very prettiest shops in Norwich – The Jade Tree.
Perched at the top of historic Elm Hill, “The Jade Tree is an art and craft shop with its own gallery, run co-operatively in the heart of Norwich.” It sells only handmade work by makers from the local area. I love the ethos of The Jade Tree, and when I first moved to Norwich just over four months ago, it was (genuinely) THE place I dreamed of selling my work, but I kind of put that hope on a shelf in my mind, not being sure if it could ever be a possibility.
Imagine my total delight when – out of the blue, after seeing my stall at Clutter City in September – The Jade Tree approached me and asked if they could sell my handmade items! I was knocked sideways.
After some lovely emails, and a meeting to discuss my pouches, brooches and notebooks, The Jade Tree placed an order for some bespoke items based on my current deisgns, which I’m busy working away on at the moment! I can’t wait to see them displayed in the shop. Being artists themselves, they have a gift for tastefully showcasing the work of other artists, and I’m just over the moon that my work will soon be featured.
I’ll write an updated post to give a final date from which you’ll be able to buy my work from The Jade Tree closer to the time, but for now, if you’re in Norwich, do go and visit them! They’re situated on Elm Hill, which is just by the cathedral, in the Tombland area. Follow the cobbles up to the top of the hill. In the meantime, you can follow them on Twitter @jadetreenorwich.
Signing off, one very happy gal.
