October 2020

Well the dark nights and mornings are finally here! im not sure where this month has gone, its flown past....

Its been a busy month in the shop with our Autumn ranges selling well including our winter coats. Im really pleased that you all like the ranges we have stocked this season. I have been busy buying Summer 2021 this month and its very hard predicting what will happen next with Covid and if we can travel on holiday again etc?

Covid continues to weave its way through our lives and things in the shop changed again as all retail staff had to start wearing masks. I opted for a visor as i think its really important that people can hear and see what i have to say and a smile for someone makes all the difference at the moment!

My rather lovely husband, brother and father in law worked hard to change the shop floor this month and i am so pleased with it. Really makes a difference to the style of the shop

The Burbage virtual market has begun on facebook this month which is a great way of promoting all our shops and businesses to local people and to encourage them to shop small. Now more than ever its really important to help others out as best you can. We had a pop up shop in store this month from another of our local businesses The Porch and it was really nice to be able to lend a hand in these difficult trading times.

Half term came and went here with no chance for a holiday but now its time for Halloween. We have put lots of pumpkins in the window for the children to count when out with their parents on the hunt!

Im currently sourcing lots of gifts for xmas so that if you dont wish to venture far then hopefully we will have everything you need in store and online.

Anyway i cant thank you all enough for keeping us busy this month, i really do appreciate it.

Take care and stay safe
