Life's a beach!
A week ago was opening day at the Antiques for Everyone show....how time flies!!!
It's great to see everyone there, customers, friends and other standholders some of whom who we only see at the show. It is quite a social week, you see some people every day for a six day stretch so you make lots of friendships, talk loads and have a laugh :-) Thank you to everyone who came to see us, especially Nic, Ashley and Emily :-) Thanks also to Mr Martin for all the free marketing advice and help and to Mrs Martin for being happy to chat whilst we plan our next move!
As usual I am totally blooped out ( so much standing! ) But, on Tues we nipped into Nottingham for a few bits and saw this amazing site!
Life's a beach in Nottinghams Old Market Square
It was complete bedlam, but the kids were loving it, a bit of sand and water and they will play all day :-) I think it is a great use of the newly re-furbished Market Square and it is a bit of fun for the families who may not get a holiday this year due to the horrid credit crunch, at least the kids get some sandcastle time and a few fairground rides
To aid my post show recovery we had a coffee in Chocolate Utopia on Friar lane as they give you a handmade chocolate with your drink, wonderful for restoring depleted energy levels or as a reviver when out having necessary retail therapy. The chocolates are handmade on the premises and are excellent quality with lots of choice of flavours etc.........YUMMY!
