This weekend I went to the Gun Dog & Game Fair at Betley, where I was sharing a stall with the wonderful Beagle N Thread! It was a very sunny couple of days and we met lots of lovely people, and their four-legged companions.
I took mainly my Great & Small bits, including some new puppy-themed items. I got a few commissions at the weekend, as people wanted their very own pet on mugs and key rings, and these personalised items are something I’m looking forward to developing in the future.
This weekend has also seen a tragic chain of events set into place. The building next door to Afflecks (where Goodnight Boutique is based) was ravaged by a fire, that got steadily worse throughout the afternoon and evening. This morning it was announced that a firefighter died trying to put out the blaze. I am so saddened by this I hardly know what to say. My thoughts are with the Manchester Fire Service and Stephen Hunt’s family and colleagues. At the moment we don’t know when we’ll be allowed to re-open the shop, but I’ll keep you informed.
