The Country Living Christmas Fair progress

Day two is now complete and we have a further three days to go and things are going really well for Whinberry & Antler. We have met so many lovely people who have stopped and talked with us about our products and said very kind things. It's been incredibly busy- busier than I expected! And our stand position is great. It's also been lovely to see some of the other exhibitors I met in Spring and hear that they are also doing well.

Being at the Fair has given me chance to reflect on how the company has grown and developed over the past twelve months: from making my very first Internet sale last December (to a friend!) to selling many products at the fair and online. I shall write a more detailed post when the show is over, but I thought for now that it would be a nice idea to share some photos.. So here you go! Thanks for reading, and come back soon! W&A.

A new stockist for Whinberry & Antler in Cirencester

I am delighted to announce a new stockist for Whinberry & Antler products in the beautiful town of Cirencester, 'For You and Your Home'. In this lovely shop you will find unique British made homewares of rich warm textures. For You and Your Home actively try to support British Craftsmen and women who use local sustainable materials which is great and fits in perfectly with the ethos of Whinberry & Antler. Take a look at the company website which has an online shop, you're bound to find some ideal gifts for your loved ones this Christmas; www.foryouandyourhome.co.uk

Vintage, in Shrewsbury, have also just received their new W&A order, including products featuring the new designs, so if you in Shrewsbury be sure to pop in and take a look! (www.vintage-shrewsbury.co.uk).

Whinberry & Antler will be heading to London on Monday for the Country Living Christmas Fair. I can't believe how quickly it has come around and that we are now in November. When I exhibited at the Fair in Spring, I was generally really pleased with the look of my stand. I did however feel that perhaps the sign did not entirely fit in with my brand, and so this time I have made two really big cushions to use as my signs instead! I think they work really well and I am looking forward to hearing any comments or thoughts on them at the Fair next week.

I must say a big thank you to my partner Finn for all his hard work and support in getting W&A ready for the fair, he will also be my fellow sales person next week!

Hopefully see you there,
