Another week gone & good news

Hello everyone.....I can't believe it's been a week since my last post.....just where does the time go?

Sorry about my last post about that what you call hard sell??...hehehe
I've been told you really need to push yourself to sell things on Folksy so I added the Firefox add on so every time I list something new or want to tell people about my things I just push a eh? So I did it very early thinking I'd delete it before you all saw it but forgot!!!
Then I had a few comments & felt bad about taking it there you go, sorry again but it's a great gadget.

Tuesday was the 3rd meeting of Make, Do and Mend, it was a funny night as only 12 people turned up but it was strangely better then the other 2. It had a lovely relaxed feel & the things we were talking about.....ohh it'll make your hair curl!!!!

I also made a big decision this week.......I brought an iPhone!!!
Now anyone who knows me will know I've wanted one since they came out but couldn't get a signal with 02 where I live....gutted!!
So since then I've bored everyone I can think of about how MUCH I want one....including all my customers!
In June last year I purchased the Nokia version, you can read about it here, but it wasn't what I really wanted. In October they went over to Orange & I was really angry I hadn't waited.
I'd been saving & trying to justify spending that much money for the last 4 months.....this week I was on a mission & spent most lunch breaks in mobile phone shops trying to get a discount or a won't happen you know, it cheapens the brand :(

Friday I headed to work with OH telling me to just buy the damn thing & shut up.....all day I was thinking should I, shouldn't I, then I spoke to a customer who was spending a lot of money on sofa's....the reason was a friend of his & just been given 3 months to live & he thought sod it you could go tomorrow & what's the good of savings!!

I explained about my situation & he made me promise to get it & text I did!!
And it feels good :)

I wanted to share my trip to Otto Retro with you, I went here over a week ago but haven't had chance to tell you all.

You liking????

I couldn't fit this in my bag so sadly had to leave it behind.

aahhhh lovely :)

I brought 2 things which I will show you next time .....ooohhhh I could take a photo with my new phone!!!!! Can you feel the excitement???

There's so much to show & tell but I don't want to bore you so I'll try & post again soon.

In the meantime this is the poster we've chosen.

The web site is now up & running....

Craft fairs are springing up all over the place......a group of ladies has set up one for June in Exeter.....hope we have enough customers.
