Wow! Work has started today on Sheep Street & Silver Street so there's no traffic coming past. It's eerily quiet outside. Hopefully it's not going to effect things here too much and make everything a bit prettier when they're done. But the quiet does get some getting used to! I've had to turn the music down to compensate!
Survived our first weekend being open. Thanks to everyone who popped in, and to Pete & SteveO for flyering! It was good to get some feedback from people (Temporary:Secretary accessories seem to catch everyone's eye!) and I'll do my best to accomodate their suggestions. Obviously, being a new business, it's not possible to do everything at once, but it's great to have some ideas on where we should go with it. Unorthodox also made it into Saturday's Evening Telegraph newspaper.
Saturday also saw the arrival of some bags by our first local label to come into stock. They're by Maddie, and they're all hand made so each is a little different. There are some shoppers (with some fantastic 60s prints!) as well as the Ladies Who Lunch bags (little fabric handbags that are light enough to go anywhere and big enough to fit in your essentials and, crucially, your lunch!). They're definitely bright enough not to lose! Anyway, my pick of the day is one of the Maddie shoppers.
Have a good week everyone!
