A busy weekend at Farrell & Holmes…

This weekend has seen us juggling a few exciting projects! We are currently working on our new website, which is almost finished and is looking rather lovely (even if we do say so ourselves!). This is mostly down to the talented designers at Norwich Designer, who also created our logo earlier this year. James from Norwich Designer is working on our online shop at the moment, so in the meantime we have opened a shop on Folksy. We started listing some new products on Friday evening and have had a steady stream of purchases over the weekend, which is very encouraging – thank you to everyone who has taken a peek at our shop!

Will’s beautiful Beatrix Potter semi-bauble sold through Folksy on Sunday evening and she has been working on more for both our own shop and Hodge Podge’s antique and gift shop in Hethersett. She has just completed a Where’s Wally version, which is very bright and cheerful. Next on the list is a Charlie and Lola design, which I am really looking forward to!

In addition to the Folksy shop and our new website, we are busy preparing for our stall at the Bungay Christmas Street Market on 4th December 2011. It is a bustling vibrant event with many local crafts people and artisans exhibiting their festive wares. As well as sewing, crocheting and paper folding, we are also having a lucky dip to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Will has been wrapping prizes and attaching little candy canes to each parcel to make them look extra inviting and hopefully we will be able to raise a bit of money for this wonderful charity. If you can’t make it to Bungay for the lucky dip, you can still donate to the Alzheimer’s Society here.

Lastly, we are offering the chance to win a dormouse doorstop to the person who can guess how many buttons are in the jar! The estimate which is closest to the total number of buttons will receive their dormouse in time for Christmas (Royal Mail and the great British weather allowing!). Yes, we have counted the buttons as they went into the jar and no, this isn’t even close to being the total number of buttons we actually own!

If you would like to enter our competition, please tell us your guess, along with your name and email address, by sending us a message via the “Contact Us” page. We will add your details to our newsletter mailing list but feel free to let us know if you would rather not receive news, offers and updates from us – you will still be entered for the competition. We will announce the winner on Monday 12th December and will send an email to the lucky guesser!
