My Top 5 Valentines Gift Ideas

My Top 5 Valentines Gift Ideas

In just over two weeks, some of us (including me), will be waiting in anticipation for a valentines gift off our loved one, or anyone if you're not fussy lol 🤣🙈. I thought I'd share my five favourite items I would like, not particularly for Valentines but any time (Lyndon!? hint, hint!) You may find some of these ideas appealing if so, feel free to share this post. The Lady Saddler OK, so this is a shameless plug of my own business but why not?

Why wouldn't I want to share it with you?! The Stirrup Collection is currently made up of a unique 3/4" width leather belt with a stirrup iron as a buckle and a 5" leather keyring embellished with a stirrup iron.

First Trade Stand of the Year

First Trade Stand of the Year

Event in Wolverley On Sunday 2nd June I attended the Wolverley Country Craft Fair and Fun Dog Show with my trade stand. It was really nice getting the trade stand back out again, especially after last year's disaster, when the gazebo blew over by a freak gush of wind.

Networking "Much prefer to talk to people than sell to them" Usually, I attend these local events to network with people more than sell to them, as I'm pretty useless at being a sales person and would much prefer to talk to people than sell to them. As long as people are taking an interest in what I'm doing and take a card (just in case), then that makes me happy.

Enville Village Show 2018

Enville Village Show 2018

At Enville Show Again Following on from last years successful launch, it was only natural to display my leatherwork again this year at the Enville Show. A fabulous day was had by all, and it was very humbling to hear that some people recognised me from my Facebook page. Brushing Boots Repair A lady, who had noticed I had checked in, via Facebook, even brought a pair of brushing boots with her for me to repair. She went for a wander around the show and a coffee with her partner, whilst I repaired her boots. There is always plenty to see and do for all of the family at the Enville show and thankfully the weather held out for us. Thank you It was lovely to see so many of you visit our stand, saying hi and grabbing a business card. Just a reminder, that some of the items displayed on the stand during the day are now for sale and available via the online shop. ...

It's a local farmers country show where a successful Horse Show is also undertaken. The weather was on our side, we met some lovely people, watched some excellent displays and sold some items. Thank you Thank you to all the organisers and volunteers, they did a grand job of getting everyone in and out of the fields, following the downpour the night before. I look forward to having a trade stand at next year's show. Online Shop Most of the items are available for sale and can be found by clicking here where you will be directed to my Online shop. ...
