Edith and I ventured over to the first Spring Babyccino Kids Shop Up a few weekends ago. It was nice to see a Spring version of the normally Christmas Shop Up. I was also happy to see them pop up in East London. In the past the shop up had been located either in Primrose Hill or Chelsea, but seeing the crowd that gathered at the Old Truman Brewery, I wouldn't be surprised if they do it again!
It's been lovely to see the Shop Up grow into what it is now. I was the first event coordinator for their very first Shop Up years ago. It was a great experience! Even though I am not involved in the behind the scenes I still attend every year to see the new brands springing up. I like to keep myself in the know of the latest baby and kid fashion.
It was a lovely sunny day in Brick Lane and I'm sure this helped get people out and about, but nonetheless, the Shop Up seemed like a success. Edith and I parked ourselves in the corner making windmills and headbands with The Little Top, one of our favourites.
We had a lovely chat with Ciao Bimbo. Edith hasn't really taken to dolls but she did when she saw the Ciao Bimbo. She now has a little boy one named Lucas. Yes she named him:)
I fell in love with Meminio vintage keepsake suitcases. One of my best friends is having a baby so she may well be getting this for her baby gift! What a great idea!
And I couldn't leave the building without buying the most amazing frill skirt from Mabel Child. It caught my eye on the way in, but I wanted to give myself a chance to look around first, but as we were heading toward the door to leave, I knew I wasn't going to leave without it. Edith wasn't sure about it at first, but I was and knew she would love it once we got it home. I was right, she loves it!!!!!
If you haven't been to the Babyccino Shop Up, make your way to the next one in December. It's a great way to discover new brands and of course go shopping!!!! They have now branched out and have a Shop Up in New York City and LA!
