So we are back and nearly recovered from a full on few days at our first proper event! Two words: "LOVED IT! " It was everything we expected and more. We bossed our stall and were over the moon with its set up; our pitch on the corner was excellent. The other stall holders were wonderful, a shout out to Em form Em and Lou (beautiful children nightware), who gave us so much advise and friendship.
Country living excelled them selves in accommodating us and with the communication. They made us feel so at home and not like complete novices! It would not obviously have been anything to write home about without the amazing customers- their kind words, their feedback and of course their purchasing skills....we loved everyone of you.
We met the most delightful dogs, small ones and big ones. Many who stopped in for a slurp of water whilst their owners enjoyed a sweet treat. We had the best help with our wonderful friend Emma, who in wooed many of the dogs with her natural Dr Doolittle ways and in-turn sold many wooden gifts to their lovely owners. Many of our four legged friends manage to persuade their owners that a dog bowl would be the perfect gift for them, quite a few of their human friends obliged! Win win!
We had family visit, friends, some who we hadn't seen in 16 years- thank you to all of you who stopped by to say hi- you will never know how much we appreciated it.
Just in case you were wondering sam was right...the oak shot glass trays were a hit- they were so well sought after and we have had an influx of orders since arriving home too.
So we are looking forward to all future sales this year and will keep you fully updated on where we will be through our Facebook page.
Have a good day y'all!
