Change of Plans!

- The lovely Natty my very able assistant. Natalie will most likely be keeping shop on my off weeks each fortnight -
Hello lovely friends, I am back from our little family holiday up north but will keep Miss Ali's shut for another week to try and give myself some time to get caught up. For the locals there is a change of plans to the market dates. We did our first Showground Market on 24th August outside the main building, but have decided we will not attend them again until we can secure a permanent stall indoors, which will enable us to create more of a little shop atmosphere and leave our goodies there each week and continue to add to it. I have felt a little swamped in my studio at home and think it will be a great idea to have the 'for sale' products housed and set up somewhere our local customers can come and browse and rely on. If and when we secure this indoor spot, we will be opening each Sunday, subject to changes obviously but that will be the plan. Organisers of the market have given me a rough 2-3 week anticipated wait on that, so will keep you posted.

A big box of new books have arrived and i will endeavour this week to get them listed on Miss Ali's for next weeks opening. Also new bookmarks have come in and the cutest little pendants i designed as well. All will be listed as time permits, so keep checking back for those. I am having a little break from design work at the moment also to focus more of my time on my young children and keeping home etc. I am sorry for those of you who are dissapointed by my decision and I thank you all for your business over the last couple of years. I will keep you posted with any new ventures and design work available as we go. Still deciding whether to offer my OOAK's web designs and if so how and where to do that best. Ok, I will leave you with a photo from our market the other Sunday and a few of our new books in stock, to be listed soon. ox
