We were incredibly excited to launch the 'My Happy Place' charity art exhibition at the One Fine Baby show in Sydney on the 14th & 15th Nov. Alongside the exhibition we also held a pop up shop for The Gathered Store. The whole event was a great success and we were able to raise some much needed funds for the very deserving Dandelion Support Network...
The exhibition was made up of 22 amazing artists from around the world who all contributed an original print under the theme 'My Happy Place'. As well as their gorgeous artworks, each artist also created a colouring in version of their artwork which kids could colour in at our kids craft station.
One of our contributing artists, the very talented Yeka Haski also created a wall of colour-in wallpaper for children to enjoy.
We will continue to sell the prints online through The Gathered Store until christmas so make sure you head along to check out these fantastic prints and snap up some Christmas presents.
We would like to say a massive thank you to our amazing sponsors who helped bring the exhibition to life:
- Civic Copying for printing all the gorgeous prints.
- Blacklist for the lovely frames.
- 8 Foot Walls for printing the colour-in wallpaper and 'My happy Place' wall.
- One Fine Baby for their contribution.
And thanks to all the brands who took part in the series of giveaways we ran in the lead-up to the show to help raise the funds needed to make it happen: anais & i, Budu Baby, Kuku Kid, Talo Interiors, Laikonik, The Childhood Store, One Hundred Percent Heart, Piu Pia Baby, Sunday In Color, Lilly and lolly, Alfie Wild, Fanny and alexander, Hide & Sleep, Natti & Natti, My Messy Room, Spot Kids, Little Bambinos, Frankie & Frenchie, Luv Mother, Jacob and Bonomi.
As well as the exhibition, we held a pop-up shop for The Gathered Store. It was exciting to see all our products out there in the real world and we got some great feedback from our lovely customers.
An enormous thank you must go to the ever amazing Nicola of Concrete & Honey who helped style our store. Not only does Nicola offer styling and photography for up and coming brands, she is also available to help bring trade show stalls to life and we can highly recommend her.
We also want to thank Mocka who provided the gorgeous black Sonata children's bed and white Amalfi Cot to use in our stand, both of which they kindly donated to the Dandelion Support Network at the completion of the show to go to children in need.
And and extra thank to the lovely Peachy Baby for the gorgeous kids clothing rack which added an extra touch of amazing to our store.
Though our pop up shop was only up for the weekend, you can continue to shop the products online at The Gathered Store.
