We’ve been talking for many months about re-designing our bottom room to make it safer for everyone as a retail space. This has historically been our delivery area but we also have some rolls of cloth stored on shelving that our customers enjoy having a look at. We were sad to see another long established business go in Bridport this year with the closure of ‘This & That’ however the legacy lives on because we now have some of their shelving in our delivery area!
We’ve used the shelving to divide the room off and create a new shop display area with a great new space for us to work in behind it. We had to relocate one or two things as anyone does when they’re having a shift around so we dismantled our old Coats thread stand. We’ve been selling off all the old Coats stock at massively reduced prices as we’ve gone over to selling Gutterman threads instead so don’t forget to look at the colours we still have left in stock when you’re next passing, you can top up your thread stocks really cheaply because they are now reduced to 50p per reel for the small size and £1 a reel for the large!!
We took the opportunity to have a bit of a play last week and created a colourful fish from old cotton reels and we’ve hung him in the stairwell next to some of our gorgeous new woven tapestry fabrics that are available in these new wave designs and don’t forget that you get FREE LINING with curtains ordered throughout May. We will be developing this theme over the coming weeks to create a summer carnival feel to the entrance that we hope you enjoy it as much as we do creating it.
