Back from the NEC
Hi Everybody and sorry we haven't added any more info to this Blog for a few weeks. We have been so busy being at the NEC and then catching up when we got home. Poor Jane was ill so we have been one man down, I am glad to say she is on fighting form again now.
We had such a good time at Hobbycrafts. We stayed at the Hilton Hotel (they had a special offer). It was very comfortable but very very expensive, you needed to take out a second mortgage if you wanted a drink. One night we slightly over celebrated and all suffered badly the next day.
The show was great and it was brilliant meeting all the customers, I was amazed at how many customers came with their 15% discount vouchers. We had planned the stand differently this year which I think worked well. We made it look like a market stall so customers could see the products better, they didn't have to come into the stand like last year.
Jan a new member of staff had such a good time she is missing the time she spent down at the show, we met some lovely people all very kind and enthusiastic with their comments about the products and the company.
It is great for all of us to come down and see our customers, we normally only ever talk to people on the phone or the email so it was great to see some faces.
Thank you to all those who we met and bought products from the stand.
