Hi everybody, our avid followers and our casual readers…. Hope you are all well! First of all i want to once again thanks everybody who came to the open day… a fantastic day which couldn’t have been possible without everybody that turned up and helped out.
With the open day over our attention turned to getting booked onto some fairs throughout the summer and increasing our profile in the local area.
With a trader unable to make April’s Treacle Market in our hometown of Macclesfield we got a call asking if we could stand in – obviously we jumped at the opportunity and it was a really good day. Plenty of talking to local people, handing cards out and raising awareness of where we are based – even the rain couldn’t keep people away! Hearing passers-by saying they had seen us online over the previous weeks was also encouraging and leads me to believe something we are doing is working.
All in all it was a good day and with a bit of luck we may become regulars on the Treacle Market.
Our full events list can be found on our facebook page but to give you an idea of our next month or so here are the fairs we are booked on to.
Southwell Racecourse Antiques Fair – 1st + 2nd of May
Donnington Antiques Market – 9th of May
Kempton Antiques Market – 10th of May
Ripley Castle (decorative home + salvage show) – 13th 14th and 15th of May
Newark Runway – 23rd of May
Kempton Antiques Market – 31st of May
And in June we are excited to be attending Decorative Home + Salvage @ Cheshire Showground and Knebworth Decro Fair. Both these shows are quite exclusive events with LOTS of visitors – We are already keeping our eyes out for special items and we have started manufacturing a few special big pieces for these shows.
A busy few months are ahead for us and although we are at fairs there will always be somebody at the showroom during the week. Feel free to bob down and have a look around – we might even put the kettle on for you!
Keep an eye on our facebook and instagram pages for interesting / wierd / unusual updates and pictures throughout the month. Until we release next months update, take care and good luck!!
