Just a Quickie…

It’s been a while now since I had a chance to sit down and do a bit of blogging, but it has been a busy old time! Where to start is the question….

Our holiday/research trip in France was a much needed break and also opened our eyes to the World of opportunity that lay ahead. It was lovely to get back and have a fresh view on things, although we’re both still finding it hard to readjust to the British way of rushing around and spending most of your life working hard with nothing to show for it! France is calling us and we have plans to move ourselves (and the business!) over there just as soon as we can.

We’ve also completed our walk for Kidney Research UK which was a fab day – thanks to everyone who sponsored us, we’ve raised £380 so far and still counting! The weather wasn’t on our side that day – you can see pictures of the event on my Facebook page (search; “Viki Collins”) or go to our website gallery at: http://www.thekraftylady.co.uk/pages.php?page=Gallery but it was still great fun and definitely for a good cause!

I know we’ve been talking about it for what seems like an age now (although this year has whizzed by and left us behind somewhat…), there are going to be some drastic changes to the shop over the next few months. My new office will be finished in a matter of weeks, which means we’ll be a lot more organised and able to get tonnes more new and exciting items. I’ve already reduced the price of some of our older stock ready to make way for the new items. We’re going to be stocking a lot more body jewellery, and as much stock as we can will be Fair Trade. ALL of our make-up section will be transformed into a ‘Cruelty-Free’ zone as we’ll only be stocking products in which the ingredients and the final product is not tested on animals. This is a huge change for us but we think it’s an important one. Fingers crossed things will be in place in time for the new year, but as always we’ll keep you posted!

Thanks so much to everyone for your continued support – it’s even more appreciated during these hard times, but we’re determined to make it through and out of the otherside – and we can’t do that without your help, so thank you!

I’ll be back with more updates soon – see you then!
