After that another intern and I had to run an errand to the Topshop HQ to pick up some equipment left there after the Hand & Lock monogramming event last week. Here's the stand in situ during the event:

My next job was another errand; to go back to Selfridges and pick up a lamp we had left there after that monogramming event and also to pick up 2 metres of a particular kind of ribbon from MacCulloch & Wallis. I was given a swatch, a map, some money and a contact name at Selfridges and I set off. I decided to head to Selfridges first as it was the furthest away and ended up having to wait a little while there whilst they located the lamp and brought it down to me. The lamp was much bigger and heavier than I thought so carrying it down Oxford Street through the christmas shopper / lunch hour zombie human traffic jam was no picnic! This was when I realised I should have gone to MacCulloch & Wallis first! I slung it over my shoulder and made my way to MacCulloch & Wallis. I'd never been in there before but the staff seemed very helpful and friendly and didn't mind that I had a lamp appendage and no idea where to find my required ribbon.
After making it back to Hand & Lock successfully my final job of the day was to touch up another metallic thread machine embroidery, this time a cat shape on a velvet hat:
I'm now on my christmas break (which I desperately need as I have laryngitis and need to recover!) but I will return to Hand & Lock and blogging next week!
