» Listings for July 2013

  1. Two events in three days last week. We had a stall at the Walsall evening market. Got off to a slow start but picked up as the evening wore on and ended up still selling as we were trying to pack the stall up! A bit noisy as were only 50 yards or so from the live music stage but otherwise a good event and we will probably go back in October - watch out for it on our events diary page.

    Saturday saw us going to Warwick to join in with the Folk Festival atmosphere. We were in the grounds of St Johns Museum - popped inside for a few minutes. Really interesting but you know you are getting old when your childhood toys and teenage clothes appear as museum items! A steady stream of vistor to the stands with the cards being the stand out sellers on the day. Different again to Walsall where the driftwood and candles took centre stage although one customer bought three chillie and pumpkino decorations. The consistent thing about our sales are that they are inconsistent>

    Off Warwick way again this weekend when we are at Hampton Magna village fete. Only a short event (1-4pm) but hoping for a good turnout of villagers ...and some decent weather.

    Till the next time

  2. Thats to us! Life has been a bit crazy for the last few months and the blog has taken a backward step. We've just  returned from a fab holiday in New York and Costa Rica full of new energy so watch this space!

    What have we done since our last post? We've been out at events most weekends and these have been very successful despite all the economic doom and gloom. Dried fruit has continued to sell well proving that it's not 'just for Christmas'. We are in the throes of launching our Christmas range but more about that in a few days. The driftwood has proved really popular and in fact we have struggled to get it listed on the website as it sells virtually as soon as its made. If you can't see what you want on the website feel free to email us and we will respond quickly. Alternatively check out our Facebook page (follow link on home page) as we sometimes post images there - better still like our facebook page and we can keep you updated.

    We've also launched a summer sale for the Pot Pourri recently so if you want some lovely colourful fragrant pot pourri check out the info on our shop pages.

    We have a large number of bigger and gazebo events booked up over the next few weeks. Why not check out our events page - we'd love to see you at an event.  

    We'll be posting blogs more regularly now so see you next time!
