The France Show

Our last day of the show proved to be as busy as Saturday, with lots of interest again. We discovered new business contacts with other traders who operate in the same area of Provence. We were lucky to be in good company around our stand with Arnaud's Language Kitchen, Siffler Publications and Parfum de France. Everyone had a great sense of humour and we hope to all keep in touch.

We were approached by a Chateauneuf du Pape fan who wanted to buy one of our posters.....well 'wine not!' It was the least we could do.

After a mad disassembling of our stand at the close of play, we made an early dash for the train. We had to lift all our gear up and down the platform walk over bridge and onto a crowded train to Clapham Junction where we just missed a fast one to Bournemouth! We boarded the next one half an hour later , and spent most of the journey wondering which end was going to Bournemouth and which end was splitting to Portsmouth as there was no carriage numbers, just information saying the first five were to Bournemouth! This wasn't our booked train and we were to told at Basingstoke by the conductor that we had a useless ticket and that we should be fined £90! Luckily he let it go this time.....maybe we'll take the car next year.

We would like to say thanks to everyone who paid a visit to our stand and we hope that we will see you in 2015
