It’s been another busy week at our place, the sun has certainly been shining, which always makes the working day that much more pleasurable. Thankfully, being a converted chapel means it’s very cool downstairs so if the warm weather continues why not every now and then to chill out a bit!
This week we have had a press photographer in who has been photographing lots of items for our Christmas look book or catalogue, we can’t wait to see the finished shots and we promise to share some of them with you next week.
Also next week we’re making over the floor in the entrance and till area, and where Cato and Karen have their furniture and bits and pieces. So from Monday, please use the side door to come in. There will be lots of signs on the front door to remind you too! If you’d like to see what the finished boards will look like do ask and we can show you a sample. We’re really sorry for the inconvenience, bear with us as hope we’ll be all done within the week.
