November on the countdown to Christmas

My 10 th Birthday Sale was a roaring success, there were lots of celebrations across the week and lots and lots of foot traffic, so thankyou to all that called in and collected bargains.

I felt it was quite a milestone for me, its been a lot of hard work all of which l have enjoyed, there are some out there that think retail is easy….let me tell you its not…

Anyway the sale is done and dusted for this year.  The winner of the door prize  was Sally Inglis, l presented her with a huge travel bag of goodies, which she was more than happy with.

So then on the Monday after the sale all of my Christmas fabric that had been stock piled since June and then 6 new collections of fabric had to be put out on the floor (that was fun)

001jpgThis was the first display to get done, the main features are Cotton and Steel’s Christmas range.  Its just so different which is why l found it so appealing.

003jpgl managed to finish a Christmas tree skirt by  Claire Turpin designs/Tied with a Ribbon collaboration.  The fun with this is it is totally made of scraps and everything fitted perfectly, a credit to the designers…..The pattern is available at the shop.

As l mentioned l had new collections:

004jpgModa s Modern Backgrounds………just perfect…..teams well with Chic Neutrals……

005jpgA new Aunt Grace 1930s collection…….

006jpgsome more of the amazing Tim Holtz………..

007jpgl filled the gaps on the Kaffe Fassett shelves…no more to say about that…….

010jpgl managed to get a good quality range of widebacks………

There are a few more collections to add but l ran out of time to photograph….so you will have to wait for the next post.

So for the moment  ..
