There just aren't enough hours in the day

I have been a little naughty and slacked off from my (kind of) regular Blogging.
Im finding it hard to find time to blog when i spend all day at the shop and when i get home im making more stock. But i am going to try my best to keep the blog updated with stuff i make.
The shop has been going well. I sold two lovely cushions to a lady yesterday and she was kind enough to send me a text message to tell me how happy she was with them! One of the cushions she bought was the button love heart cushion.
It's nice to know my creations go to a loving home.
Here is some photos of some new cushions i have made and are now for sale in the shop.

Button Heart Cushion SOLD

Organic Cotton Moustache Cushion £12.50

Natural Creme Wool Button Cushion £20.00

The Corner Emporium

Well it seems i have been M.I.A recently. The reason for this is that i have been crazy busy setting up shop!

Middlesbrough Council have offered 6 months retail space to 10 local start up businesses and i was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the businesses.

The move began last Monday last week with assembling furniture, merchandising stock etc and we opened to the public on Thursday. Things have been going well, sales wise and comments from customers.
There is a real mix of sellers, some artists, crafters, baby clothing and even fudge & cupcakes.

The store is called The Corner Emporium and located in The Mall shopping centre, Middlesbrough next to HMV.

Some photos of my unit. It will continue to change as i get/make more stock and more furniture but this is what it looks like at the moment.
