armcandii in southbank bristol arts trail saturday may 8th

We joined young entrepreneur Arthur (aged 7) at his 'pop-up' cafe on Saturday 8th May for the Southbank Bristol Arts Trail.

Arthur was selling cakes and drinks to art lovers and snoopers of other people's houses (!) to raise money for Easton School's 'Easton Under Canvas' project which takes pupils camping every summer.

We set up in Arthur's lounge having the priviledge of using his mum's beautiful inherited retro 'bar' as our table. Visitors supporting the school and arts trail tumbled through the doors between 12 and 5, browsing and buying armcandii treasures and heading for the cafe in Arthur's kitchen and garden.

Visitors were taken with armcandii corsages and some inventive shoppers were keen to wear them in their hair, on their bags, on belts as well as on their clothes. armcandii's reworked vintage and retro costume jewellery was also on show and fitted perfectly with the surroundings.

Arthur made over £170 for his school... Lord Sugar would be proud!
You can find candiicorsages and other armcandii goodies in our Etsy shop.
