Susie Watson comes to Cambridge!

23 Sep

Shop Interior 5Now for those of you who have visited ShoesieQ’s Cambridge shop in the last few months, well, you might be thinking that, yet again, ShoesieQ is a bit behind on her blogging. Cos it is true that this very lovely shop has already been open for a couple of months now (well, almost 4, now she thinks about it).

But dear reader, you’d be wrong! Cos it was only last Thursday that Susie Watson herself came down to throw a bit of a bash to celebrate the opening of her latest store here on lil’ ol’ Green Street.



And hey, if the Queen can have have 2 birthdays, well ShoesieQ reckons that it’s more than fair enough that Susie Watson can have 2 launch days 😉


Anyway, Susie was joined by a whole throng of people during the day and into the evening, including our MP Julian Huppert, lots of local journalists and bloggers, and yours truly (once she’d shut up shop at 5.30pm). And we all had a lovely time in her lovely shop admiring all the very many, very lovely things, accompanied by a few glasses of fizz and some yummy canapes.

Susie Watson herself!

But when all things are said and done, what is probably the most impressive thing about Susie Watson Designs is the fact that all of these very lovely things are handmade by people who are paid a living wage in parts of the world where this is not normally the case.


If you want to find out more, here’s a link to the relevant page of their website:


But really the best way to find out more is to come along to the shop! And if you do, please do pop in to say hi to ShoesieQ! 🙂
