September 2014

What a great start to the Autumn? The weather has been beautiful and really helped with those last of the season outdoor shows. The Heart of The Valley Show was another fantastic day and we thoroughly enjoyed it, meeting new friends and greeting customers from last year too.

We have just been busy shopping and checking out the new things for Autumn/Winter and hoping that you will like them. There will be plenty of floaty tops with lace/jersey and also some beautiful colourful accessories such as drape cardigans, scarves and layered tops. The vintage styles still prove to be a favourite choice for many and it’s always a fun filled time when customers come in to try on and order their own specific choice – long may it continue.

Look out for some new additions in the coming weeks as we get back to the fair trade gifts and home decor items in time for the Christmas shopping period – there are some gorgeous home accessories to see including some fair trade rugs, tea light holders and silk throws – getting excited as we await delivery.

We will also be updating the Mexican heart jewellery stock as this went down a storm last Christmas so we shall have plenty of lovely things available for those special gifts.

The last thing we still have left on the to do list is to paint the shop – having got as far as getting the front washed down in preparation the next stage of painting should go ahead during the next 2 weeks – maybe more of you will see me on Herbert Street as we become known as the duck egg blue shop!


Have a lovely September and hope to see some of you soon
