Hello Beautiful Beaders!
What a busy couple of weeks it has been! I'm not quite sure where to start....well the most obvious choice is telling you that our new store is looking absolutely amazeballs and is now open for business.
We had a gorgeous day on Sunday when friends and family gathered to christen the new store with bacon rolls and Buck's Fizz. My good friend Dawn Bibby dropped by to support us and we were thrilled to show her not only the layout of the shop but where her very own Shabby Chic line of fabulous products have pride of place.
Dawn has created a spectacular line of papercrafting accoutrements that you really shouldn't be without and we are so proud to be stocking them in our new store. She even gave us a sneak preview of her newest products that are about to launch this week...
My boys have been just wonderful all weekend. Hubby has been a little under the weather so my eldest really stepped up and helped move stock, drill stuff, serve customers and generally be the shining star that he is. Number two son flashed his cheeky personality to everyone who stepped through the front door, making him the perfect little host for the new shop, whilst numéro three son whizzed around on his wheely shoes looking after his Dad.
The only slight sadness was leaving our old home in the Deeping Craft and Antique Centre, however we have kept a little bolt hole there where you can find all the essentials plus some excellent outlet bargains, like buy one get one free on a wide range of gorgeous bead packs, or decorative papers down to just 20p per sheet!
Of course for our full range there's no place like home and you won't be disappointed when you come into 83 High Street, Market Deeping, PE6 8ED (for those using a sat Nav! Lol). The new store has everything you could possibly need, from our popular haberdashery section, massive bead and findings area, extensive papercraft selection, to art supplies and huge workshop space. Plus the bistro tables have already proved successful for shoppers needing that five minute coffee break!
I know I'm gushing but I'm just so excited for you all to see it and enjoy the beautiful light, creative space. Our official launch party is on the 20th of May, 10am to 5pm, and I do hope that you can make it. Dean Wilson from Create and Craft TV is going to be opening the store for us, more fizz (always), free goody bag giveaways and much, much more!
I would love to hear what you think of the new place, and any ideas or suggestions you might have, so please do comment in the box below.
Until we meet again (hopefully on the 20th in Market Deeping) Happy Beading!
