I know, I know, it's been a while since I last blogged, but things have been a little busy! This year we have completely changed our event plans, and have swapped from the smaller local fairs, to much bigger ones all over the country. We wanted to see if it made a difference money wise, but also to try something new. So far so good, but it was getting difficult tyring to pack 3 days worth of stock plus a suitcase into the car, so we made a decision! We've been talking about it for ages, but it was time to go for it, so we bought our first company car (or van in this case!).
After a lot of cleaning, we took it down to Norfolk for the Bank Holiday weekend for an event at Blickling Hall. It is a simply stunning place, and we were extremely lucky with the weather as it was absolutely baking hot! Without the worries of trying to fit everything in the car, we took as much stock as we could possibly make, and promptly came home with a pretty much empty van....apart from the obligatory purchases of course ;)
This weekend we are following the travelling theme, and are the Kenilworth Show on Saturday, and then down to the Rutland County Show on Sunday. It's looking like the weather might be nice once again, so hopefully it should be another good weekend.
We've been busy booking shows all over the UK, and you can see the extent of out planned travels on the Upcoming Events page on our website. From Cambridge to Anglesey, to Hull and Holkham in Norfolk, we really are getting to see the country and it's really enjoyable too!!!
