It was held at the impressive showroom of Rose & Lee Vintage, which is in a suburb of Manchester called Radcliffe. There was tea served in mis-matched china cups and saucers and lots of home made delicious nibbles including mini chocolate cupcakes, mini scones with clotted cream and jam, and fudge brownies. I sampled them all of course, as you know I love a bit of tea and cake!
Event organiser, Alice, had a great idea that we could do a 'speed-dating' type thing to break the ice, and have a chance to meet everyone in the room with just a 2 minute window to find out as much information about each other as possible, and exchange business cards! The time flew by, and by the end of the meet up everyone had met everyone else and had a fist full of business cards and inspiration to send them on their way home! A really nice night! Here are some photos....
