Ribbons for Christmas

Some  times I forward order stock - I don't do it often because not all suppliers do that, but this ribbon was ordered waaaay back in February....I was a bit 'over' Christmas at that point but I could not resist these - and when I opened the delivery on Friday afternoon I was SUPER happy that I'd got my hands on these :-)
 there's lots of grey - my favourite base colour
 lots of cute (of course!)
 and lots of Christmas colours and characters
 the silver on these baubles is all sparkly :-)
All of them are just 40p a metre - Good huh?
you can see them all here

shop talk

Today we spent time prepping stock to fill up the pop-up-shop...now we have more space there (and more stock!) we can fill up twice a week, rather than every other day - which is a lot more efficient ... It's amazing how different the fill-up list is every time....this time it was fabric, fabric & more fabric!!
It takes a lot of cutting, folding & packing but it looks lovely when it's done!! (these are photos in the workshop - they will be put in the shop after work tomorrow)
***our shop is within The Custom's House, West Bay, Dorset their website is HERE our shop will be there for the rest of this year (at least!) and they are open 7 days a week***
