As I spent some days in the UK last week for the Software Craftsmanship 2010 conference, I took the opportunity to visit the Wand Makers Chris Barnardo and Richard Blakesley in Bishops Stortford, Chris’ hometown.
They picked me up from the station and we went directly to Chris’ home talking all the way about wands, kids and much more. On entering the appartment it struck me that this was really an inventors home. Lots of magic wands everywhere, magic candles and self made items of any kind.
While sipping on a coffee we continued to chat about inventing and business. I was also shown the Leopard Gecko who had recently suffered from an attack of his food (locusts). While wandering through the living room I found so many items that Chris created either for his kids, his dadcando site or for himself. That was truly amazing. I really like how he decorated his home with those Wand Company items and took some photographs.
We left for lunch at PizzaExpress which was really delicious. Then they took me back to the rail station to get in time to the airport to catch my plane home. Thanks a lot for this great time. Looking forward to visit you again.
At home several packages of Kandela Magic Candles waited for me to be smiled at and for you to order from us.
