When I set up the business and the whole idea of the shop was to combine a mix of flowers country style and from the garden.
Plants to sell reflecting the garden style.
Locally produced handmade crafts
Vintage bits and bobs
A whole package of gifts and treasures .
I also sell candles country gifts etc as its hard for the suppliers to keep up with demand and have such a selection . I have never said we ONLY sell things from the garden or handmade .
As much as id love to 100% Its a tall order.
A lady came in demanding English grown flowers xmas eve-now that is a very tall order in our climate!!
This time of year we ponder on ideas and direction-we shall see where the year takes us.
I love having a MIX of ideas and products and helps the business tic over in winter.
I love to be digging the garden one day -be in a church doing a wedding the next and taking pictures for cards another.
Being open Wed-Sat allows me to do this as well as see my beloved family . Do a weekly shop and sometimes clean the house!!!
