Well it seems like a distant world but what fun I had at this year’s BBC Gardener’s World Live. It was our first visit .

It was a wonderful opportunity to show case the women’s work to wider market. the products were well received and you can see from the photos at some point we had such a lage que of people waiting to browse.

The handcrafted straw hats from Madagascar were are a hit and so were the Ugandan baskets
It was interesting that men, women and children all loved them, the women in the age brackt of 23-35 especially loved them apparently because the baskets were a better alternative to carrying a bottle of wine in a plastic bag when going around to a friend’s for dinner!

The comments that I got about the products over the course of the week was “unusual, well made and beautiful”
