Blog 3, The Final Countdown

Here we are one week to go before re-opening. All is set in the shop (or it will be by next weekend). Shop will re-open 9:30 Monday 12th April. Unfortunately I will be closed on Thursday 15th I am currently looking like a Badger and the Hairdresser is calling.

As with all good news there is always the negative. It is proposed but I don’t think as yet the legislation has been full approval but from 30th April all single use carrier bags are chargeable at 10p. Small shops with less than 250 staff have been exempt from charging for carrier bags but the new rules mean all shops must charge. So get your bags for life ready.

The website is currently offering 15% off all wool sales until 11th April.  Prior to our re-opening on 12th April, there will be some bargains and “an offer” not sure what it will be as yet but watch this space for news.

I am going to add some accessories to the website, cable needles and stitch holders etc. They should be on by mid-week it’s getting the photos together that takes the time.

Also coming soon buttons-these will be matched with the baby yarns and available when purchasing yarn. Buttons will not be sold separately, this is due to the postage charges associated with small sales-sorry. Any number of buttons can be purchased with wool sales.

The much awaited Stylecraft Bambino Prints five new shades are now here and available in both shop and website.

£3.50- 100g 268m 100% premium Acrylic

As ever you can purchase from the website and collect in the shop from 12th April. Anyone local needing a delivery please message me.

Not much happening here this week.

Keep Knitting and Keep Safe.
