This is…Chicita (aka Amanda Robins)

...of Gimme that Thing



Favourite colour?

Olive

Favourite smell?

Chanel Coco



Favourite place?

A quiet and pebbly Greek beach

Favourite sound?

The waves at night



Favourite way to spend your time?

Knitting with cotton and silk yarns

Favourite item in your shop of all time? Big-ceramic-buttons
...of Gimme that Thing



Why?

They express my personality - noisy, full of energy and slightly vintage looking!

Favourite shop that isn’t yours?

(Apart from Niftyknits, obviously!) Charlotte Hupfield Ceramics

Why?

Her designs are uncomplicated and effective. As a ceramicist myself, I know how easy it is to take a design that little bit too far, and how difficult it is to know when to stop.

What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learnt so far that you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Network and be noticed, otherwise you just sink to the bottom of the heap.

I think "network and be noticed" could be the name of a book, very succint and very true.
