Well what can I say about the Hobbycrafts Show last weekend, how about - FANDABBYDOSEY!!!!!!
It was simply unreal, customers just kept on coming back again and again to the stand. Thank you to all our wonderful customers.
I had a lovely surprise on Saturday morning, I was restocking the button units before the show opened, and I felt something clinging to my legs. I looked down and there was little Mollie. Rachie and Bev had decided to make a surprise visit, it was wonderful to see them. They had left Dorset at 5.30am just so they could be with us before the show opened. I would like to think that they came just for me and it had nothing to do with all the goodies they went home with!!!!
Thanks for all your concerned comments about my camera, it was on our stand the next morning where I had left it. But I did have a disturbed night worrying about it. I must be over tired, because I forgot to take it into work today, so when it was time for the Friday FREEBIE draw I had no camera - boo hoo. So after everyone had gone, I rushed home, picked up the camera and headed for Bev's, we could not have another week of just paper slips on a table, could we.
So the two £20 vouchers are going to the two lucky numbers picked by our Sydney............
Number 23 = Ruby
Oh my word, just come over to see the next post, I do hope you camera was still there...hope your enjoying the fab exhibition! Ruby x
Number 42 = Helen

Happy weekend everybody
WOW Ruby and Helen you each have £20 smackers to spend on our website - what will you put in your baskets, do tell. Please email me at email@example.com to claim your prize and I will send you all the details to get your sticky mitts on the vouchers.
A big huge thank you for everyone who left comments this week, we met quite a few of you over the weekend - always great to put faces to names. We hope you all had fun at the show.
Tony and I unloaded the exhibition stand this morning and Rachie refused to speak to us, she was.....well I can only say "Gobsmacked" by how little amount of stock we had left. She wandered around the warehouse saying "BUT it's Paris next week!!' "Ali sold all my stock", "We are going to Paris and the ribbon units are empty". After a good strong cup of coffee, she got her head round the little problem and started pulling ribbon rolls from the shelves, printers started whirring, scissors starting chopping and crates started to be filled with out work for the girls. I overheard her on the phone to one girl saying "This is the last push, no more outwork until the New Year, I can give you the Swiss Dots, you like those". Ooooh she can be such a charmer!
Phew....even I thought we had a problem on our hands. I can sleep tight tonight that we will have ribbons to sell in Paris.
