I seem to be chasing my tail around like mad at the moment - there is so much going on - both in the area - the shop - and the other stuff with all the yard restoration.
The big news (for us) is that the sewing shop 2 doors up is moving next week. This means we can really push our boundaries and expand our stock into all sorts of area that we could not before. We have know for several weeks now - so when we went to the show It was with fresh eyes that we were hunting for new stock.
We are still staying very true to our core of not doing the 'main stream' brands that everyone else stocks - so we will still carry a unique range of products. Starting with a new range of cross stitch kits from Fat Cat Designs. Bit more of a project than the Mouseloft - but not a lifetime commitment ;-). Big, bold, colourful designs - all full stitches - and no top stitching (unless you want to). Plus they do 2 super ranges for kiddies and new starters.
We are also going into jewelry making. With my experience we can stock all sorts of natural gemstones - agates - jaspers etc - plus all the wires, pins, clasps, rings etc that you need.
Decoupatch should land with us next week too. That will be fun.
We will also be keeping a few haberdashery bits and bobs - plus pretty little work boxes - pin boxes - tape measures - cute scissors - and nearer to Christmas - knitting bags - storage boxes.
It is going to be an amazing year
