We were extremely proud and very lucky to be selected from a huge number of applicants to take part in Pop Up Britain, an new initiative by www.startupbritain.org which provides a tremendous amount of support to small independent online businesses who would love to have a High Street presence and helps facilitate this for them.
On Monday, after a hectic week of preparations and taking part in an NCT Cheeky Monkey fundraiser at The Park Club, Livvy and I arrived at the PopUp Britain shop in Richmond, where we met five other small businesses all looking as excited (and tired) as we were. Collectively we set about making the shop our own and given that it is a pop up shop, here's a peek at our ever changing window display.
The response so far has been brilliant and we have received some exciting press coverage already - more on that later.
I am absolutely delighted to have an opportunity to showcase London Mummy in a real life shop with shelves!! We have received such a fantastic welcome from not only the mums in Richmond, but also Kew, Twickenham, St Margarets, Barnes and of course my beloved Chiswick.
As always, Olivia has been wonderful, very much a big part of the team.

Right I'm off to the shop, oh how do I love being able to say that :)
