The Queens Road Festival – All About Daisy – Leicester
Whilst I was there I spotted a stall that was selling cake stands made from old vinyl records, the stall was called All About Daisy. As I continued looking, I noticed some other amazing items; there were bowls made from vinyl LP’s, Bangles made quite literally from junk mail, Garden tool baskets made from old lorry inner tubes and drinking glasses made out of beer bottles as well as a medley of other unique items.
As I began chatting with All About Daisy owner Michelle Harvey I confessed that one of her Vinyl bowls which was created from the album ‘The Kids From Fame’ was also the first album I purchased as a boy – An embarrassing fact -Yes totally!
Michelle then went on to explain the process she uses to make drinking glasses out of beer bottles, which sounded, extremely complicated but at the same time very rewarding.
It’s amazing to think just how much money there is to be made from junk and I have to say that I admire Michelle’s business ethic for doing something different and having the confidence to present in such a professional way.
If you get the chance to see the All About Daisy stall then you will be totally amazed by how cool the whole concept is and that’s why I just had to write a few words about it.
