We are all aware that the Earth's resources are scarce and we need to recycle as much as we can to preserve them. This is why we use recycled tissue paper and paper carrier bags in our shop as a matter of course. We do have plastic carrier bags, but we reserve them only for when we absolutely must use them (or a customer specifically requests them). We know that many of our customers reuse our bags time and time again until they fall apart, and often recycle the paper ones again.
It's been a very busy few months and an extremely steep learning curve (vertical, almost) since we bought the shop in June 2014.
We have weathered our first Summer, survived Goose Fair unscathed, made our debut at the wonderful Dickensian Evening, enjoyed a hectic Christmas, had our first January Sale, and launched this website. We are now officially into Spring. And with Spring, our thoughts turned to our next challenge: refurbishing the shop.
