We’ve had a crazy month here at by Sikora!
What with a move to the big smoke interspersed with running back to Shropshire to manage stock, send out parcels and go to shows we’ve certainly been busy. We’re well and truly getting in to the spirit of all things Christmas as, being based next to Fortnum & Mason, Christmas becomes somewhat unavoidable from about October… in a classy, glittery and oh-so trinkety kind of way. Furthermore, aside from everything that has happened, we’ve been secretly rejoicing at the fact that the temperature is FINALLY dropping. It’s truly starting to feel like Winter, something we’re always rather grateful for when we’re surrounded by sheepskin!
We started our week of Christmas fairs in Ludlow at the League of Friends Christmas Fair at Ludlow Racecourse. This event was recommended to us and I can say that the early morning drive over there would have made the day worthwhile without it being such a fabulous and beautifully organised event.
This followed with a Wednesday of meetings where we spent the day optimising our website with Helen at Ascendency Internet Marketing.
It was great to meet so many great people at the Country Living does Christmas at Ascot Racecourse last weekend. Fantastic too to see so many beautiful familiar faces! Ascot is always a fun venue and we were next door to the wonderful Parkers Cufflinks. We were lucky enough to be stationed next to the Parkers whilst at Burghley Horse Trials earlier in the year and they were such great neighbours with such lovely products that it certainly made the somewhat chilly event more fun! A shout out must also go to the lovely Anna at Butler Stewart, another lovely Burghley neighbour with equally beautiful products.
Perhaps most importantly, we’ve got some last minute new stock in! Our 100% British sheepskin ladies boot slipper and men’s mule slipper are finally here and looking fantastic.
If you were stuck for gift ideas before, you won’t be now! You can buy online here.
And so in a flurry of increasingly regular mince pies and mulled wine, we leave you until next month! Let the Christmas countdown begin because, did you know, it’s less than a month away now…
