Right: don’t tell anyone, but it’s almost November. Which means it’s nearly December. Which means we’re in the run up to Christmas (having had our first retail order for Holly Ovengloves as long ago as May!). The utterly gorgeous new ‘Partridge in a Pear Tree’ tea towels are online now for preorder, and we’re very excited: they’re festively gold, without being bling, and just a little bit different both to anything we’ve done before, and to the high street. Take a look online and then tell us: do we do table runners and napkins too? We’ll need to get a move on if the answer is yes. Meanwhile the stockroom is filling up nicely with Holly, Mistletoe and Christmas Wreath pieces ready for the fairs we’re doing over the next two months, and for the seasonal rush – oh alright, I’ll admit it. It’s all rather exciting!
