It now almost seems like last year when Covid began and all the lockdown happened , but as a result i've been so busy during the entirety that for me , its just been work work work . This week brings our now Annual Stock take and clean up which also brings with it the Flash sale to help clear down stock . During the next week , i will still be available by email but existing orders wont be dealt with until Friday at the earliest . All current orders that are in stock will be readied and collected monday morning and the new items arriving are due mid week but wont be processed until friday . Social media comments / queries will be caught up on , so not as responsive
We have posts scheduled for our social medias so you will still see content and new items / stock back in and who knows i may even take a day off ! In the meantime we got some of our new Artificial flowers into the display in Watters and they really are lovely , adding a nice homely touch to the display . Our very popular Boat wood Larder is now on display as well and being Guarded well by Our knight - Fred ( fearsome name thanks to my daughter )
Dont forget you can get a good deal on some of the On Hand stock now in our flash sale which while says for the weekend will run into monday at some point im sure
So we are now coming out the far side of what for us as an online business was the rollercoaster rise and now fall of Covid . We are very thankful for the massive increase in interest and business during lockdown and appreciate every customer and friend we've made during this time . Now we are dealing with the other side of the coin , due to a few reasons really the business is now down to a near standstill which for me ( Frank ) has been and is tough to watch
The global lockdown has been a huge factor towards this combined with the easing of restrictions and lockdown and shops re opening , I'm delighted to see many of my friends business's back open and equally worried about how this Journey is progressing for us . Its mentally taxing in different ways , during the peak over optimism suggested we might maintain the level we had reached . All we can do is continue to keep on the road and keep our goals in sight and thank everyone who has supported us .
On a Selfish note , Please , Don't forget us now that shops are open again , we are still here , still trying to offer sustainable and affordable options.
