Our packing skills were on full display at London's 2018 Spring 'The Other Art Fair', where we provided customers with a full (and free!) packing service to ensure their recent purchases made it home in perfect condition. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, making lots of new friends on the day and capturing the event on video.
