The Octopode Factory's in the NEWSPAPER!!

I was is the Newspaper this week! Apparently my stall for Quad's gift bazaar was the most eye-catchingly festive. Although it wasn't much of an 'article' just a picture and a sentence AND they spelt my name WRONG, I feel a slightly great sense of achievement that i was the only one mentioned by name!


"Festive artist Lilly (it's actually Lily) Chilvers was amoung those whose work attracted more than 1,300 people to a gift bazaar at Derby's Quad. The event featured 29 stalls selling decorations like those made by Lilly's Derby-based business, The Octopode Factory"
