I was recently asked by the guys at Mary Portas's retail branding company to help out with the latest Save the Children "Living and Giving" shop in Parsons Green, Fulham.  I was wavering as to whether to say yes or not as the workload has been quite heavy recently, but remembering how good it was to work on the last one in Primrose Hill jogged my memory just in time, and so I came on board to head up sourcing all the integral bits and pieces that would make the design come alive.

The sourcing list is ALWAYS tough thanks to Neil Watson's clever designs.  I always moan and complain that it "impossible to find these things cheap, if at all" and Neil always quietly nods and smiles and says nothing......and, with the aid of some enthusiastic helpers,  I always manage to find them.  Think there might be a lesson for me to learn there.........anyway, another shop done and dusted and it opens today (Saturday 30th July).  Popped down yesterday to take some snaps and was so pleased to see the finished result.  So many people have helped out on this, giving of their time and enthusiasm with no fuss or complaining and I have to say I think it looks fantastic!  My photos do NOT do it justice - PLEASE visit if you are in the area and see for yourself......

Mary's Living and Giving, 28 New Kings Road, London SW6 4SW
