Its hectic upon hectic here at Tiddler & Fox HQ, after a 3 day shopping show at the weekend; one day to set up, 3 days selling with a late night on Sunday, it was straight into preparing to move into a new shopping emporium in Salisbury which opens this Saturday (find all the details at the end of this post) with stock to price and sort and then packed up and off we went today.
As is the norm in retail, everything was chaos when we got there but a happy atmosphere as all of us traders set about getting our areas looking lovely. Just a few finishing touches later this week and it's good to go. I'm really pleased and looking forward to another new challenge. (plus there will be T&F goodies in another emporium in January 2017 but more on that to come!)
I will post in more detail next week when I have images to show you and the doors are open to shop, shop, shop. But its a great space and the cafe looks set to be awesome too, just bring me coffee and I'm happy.
So on top of that I almost forgot yesterday that the business was one year old.
Amazing to forget but there is so much my tiny bear brain can take so it dawned on me mid afternoon and I posted to social media and had some lovely responses. So nice to have the support when its been a full-on, non-stop, mind blowing year of learning, growing, developing and changing but overall I have to admit that it's been pretty darn amazing. I'm really looking forward to everything the next year will bring....
Now it's less than a month to Christmas I hope everyone is starting to feel festive, I have another 6 markets to go, with a full weekend this weekend in Sherborne (all the details are on the Craft and Vintage fairs page) and I'm really enjoying meeting such lovely customers and getting great feedback, makes all this hard work and endless thinking worth it.
So it's just a short post this week as my to-do list is packed full and there simply isn't enough coffee to keep me awake at the moment but here's to a great year for Tiddler & Fox with many more to come, thank you for reading and happy birthday to me!
