Celebrating our 6th Anniversary

  • I can't believe we have been trading in Cricklade, High Street for 6 years, on the 4th August.  The time has just flown by.  I remember some little ones being born just as I opened.  Mums, dads & grandparents all coming in to buy something for the newborn baby boy or girl.  Each year I have had to gauge whether it was going to be more boys than girls or vice versa.  I always managed to get it right - not sure about this year though!  Now these little ones will be starting school in September and I have watched them grow.  Oh! I am getting all sentimental!
  • It was a very exciting time for me back then, I had been running a home business, then a market stall and then making the decision to open a shop in a High Street.  I remember my husband arriving home from work and asking how my day had gone.  I said do you want the good news or the bad news! He looked at me and I said the good news is I have signed a lease on a shop! and the bad news is I want you to fit it out!  After the initial shock he said "well done of course I will".  The rest is history.
  • Yes, it has been great most of the time.  I have so many tremendous customers from all over the UK, Overseas too,and made loads of friends who are so supportive of me.  I thank each and every one of you, I could not have done it without you.  There has been a few knocks along the way but you just pick yourself up, dust yourself down and start all over again!
  • It is an ever changing market  the craft industry.  I try to bring in as many new products and ideas as possible.  Pricing is always an issue, but I try to maintain an even balance wherever possible.  Our Reward Card is available to allow you to build up points against your purchases which are then redeemable against further purchases.
  • Do pop in and see us if you can we will be having a little celebration from the 4th for one week.  Plenty of special offers and it will be my chance to say a personal thank you to those that drop buy.

Happy Crafting,  Una
