Well, what a week it’s been. Flat out with my day job in a local school, trying to arrange stock deliveries and the sale around it – I’m exhausted! How is it only the end of the second week back?
I did have a lovely email drop into my inbox though – if you have ever visited one of these events you will know how popular they are.
I’m really hoping that nothing changes and we are able to attend both Redworth Hall and Gisborough Hall Christmas Fairs. Please put the dates in your diaries and keep your fingers crossed – after all, we have all missed out on so much over the last two years!
Our sale has now ended – sorry if you missed it! It’s well worth joining our newsletter for updates like this, or you could always follow us on Facebook and Instagram (I’m going to be using both a lot more over the next few months).
If you can’t manage a visit to either of the Christmas Fairs above, we are also going to be at Gisborough Forest & Walkway with our stall on 5th December. They aren’t running a market this year but will have Christmas trees for sale and are inviting traders to set up alongside the visitors centre. I think we will need to wrap up with lots of layers!
I hope you are as excited about Christmas as we are – it will be here soon!
It’s been a busy week here at UKCS HQ, mostly redecorating our living room and younger teens bedroom, but I’m also trying to get myself organised for another season of few events and mainly selling through the website.
I have my stock in plastic tubs ready for loading for each event, but as things have changed quite a lot now I decided that turning my small office into a stock room was a better solution, as then I will be able to pick and pack your orders more efficiently.
With that in mind, and a lot of stock to fit on the new shelving (before we even get this years delivery) I’ve been working on a pre-season sale for you all. You can see a sneak peek of what will be available from 1st September, but (as long as I’ve scheduled it correctly) you will have to wait until the day for sale prices.
To be honest, I’m a little worried we won’t have enough shelf space for everything. I ordered so many lovely things way back in April/May with the hope that Christmas markets would be up and running again, but it’s not looking hopeful. We find lovely new homes for so many of our Christmas decorations at events, but this year I’m fully expecting Bowes Christmas Fayre to be the only one again. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for us, but if you don’t want to take the chance of us being at a market close to you this year please order online.
