On Sunday 31st March, we set off to Cheltenham to set up our stand at April Interiors which was on the Monday.
April Interiors is a Trade-only soft furnishings, workroom and interior design show, that brings suppliers and trade customers together. You will find the latest collections and products on show from small independent businesses to big and international retailers. It is the biggest and best south west show, that draws attendees from all over the UK.
We arrived at Cheltenham Racecourse where the event is held and we endeavoured to unpack the car and get prepared to set up our space (this always takes the longest part!).
We set up our display and then it gets the fun part of adding the finishing touches with our fabrics, cushions and lampshades that we had bought with us.
The collections that we decided to bring with us this time were are Beachcomber and Marksbury Collections. These collections are set up in fabric by the metre, wallpaper, cushions & lampshades.
After we had completed our stand, we went and checked into our boutique hotel for the night - Beaumount House.
It was a great place & location and we would recommend this place to anyone if they are wanting to go and explore what Cheltenham has to offer.
It was then time for us to go and find something to eat! We stumbled across Zizzi's in this amazing old church building!
We had a much needed drink and food and then had a nice walk back to our hotel for an early night to prepare us for the day ahead.
