Saturday 29th October 2016
They say times flies when you’re having fun but I still can’t believe that our small fledgling business is almost a year old this October.
It seems like only yesterday that after a full weeks work in London, we would get ready for a weekend of decorating in our yet unopened shop. Sanding, filling, staining, painting, you name it, we did it, for three months solid.
The night before we opened the shop doors for the first time we were still putting the finishing touches to our displays at 2am in the morning! From memory we had a couple of hours sleep before we were back in the shop for our big open.
There were bubbles flowing so it all seemed a bit of a blur after two or five glasses!
The shop was packed and we sold well, I remember feeling rather dizzy at one stage and having to go out side for some air. I said it was lack of sleep but Alison my wife said it was the Prosecco, well she would wouldn’t she!?
We have gradually grown and added more lines to our stock particularly in the gift area but most of all we have been lucky enough to have a fantastic bunch of customers and a loyal following with repeat business. To put the icing on the cake we have had the privilege of meeting some lovely people, some of whom are now good friends.
An invitation for you…
With our anniversary fast approaching we would like to invite all our old, new and yet to be converted customers to our 1st Birthday/Anniversary drinks on Saturday the 29th of October. We will be celebrating by offering customers some very good Pre-Christmas deals so please pop along for a glass of fizz and save some money on your Christmas shopping in the process!
See you soon…
