I would also like to mention a new retailer for W&A products; Willow & Stone, Falmouth. They sell some really lovely things, I came across their company whilst looking for some door handles for myself and I am so pleased that they now stock my products. They have a great online shop, as well as having just moved to a bigger premises in Falmouth itself. I highly recommend taking a look at their website if you're looking for top quality, original and British homeware accessories: http://www.willowandstone.co.uk/ . As well as that, I am using the early part of this week to complete another order for Vintage, in Shrewsbury (https://www.facebook.com/vintage.shrewsbury). Only three weeks since their first order, so it's great to know that W&A is doing well in it's hometown!
And so attention really is turning to the Country Living Christmas fair. I have completed some new designs (think fox, field mouse, red squirrel and barn owl). So now I just need to order a new silk screen to start printing them in time for the fair! I'm also trying to develop the ceramics range in time, as well as hopefully set it up so that customers can purchase gift vouchers to use online... So if you know anyone who may like our products, but you can't decide on an exact one then maybe a gift voucher could be the ideal gift!
Whinberry & Antler now also uses instagram, so if you're interested in what goes on behind a business, and want to see how things are made, then just like our facebook page to stay updated! (I'm all about photographs and visual so it suits me perfectly!)
Anyway, a big day of printing draught excluders lies ahead tomorrow, so it is probably time to leave the office and call it a day. Still working out the best ways to photograph them to put them online... but in the meantime, they are available at both Vintage and Willow & Stone.

All the best, hope to see you on facebook and back on here soon!
Thanks for reading.
