First of all, as I mentioned in my previous post A Crafter's Guide to Selling at Christmas, this is a crazy busy season for anyone who makes their products - it's a busy season for everyone, but making products by hand is time consuming and rushing to get stock done and have everything organised can be a bit fraught!
I'm feeling reasonably on schedule and this Saturday I dropped stock off at An Siopa Nollaig in Portarlington. This is a pop up shop run by the lovely KellyAnne - she and her friend Kimberly ran it last year, also, in the run up to Christmas, and I was very happy to be asked to give some stock for the shop again this year.
Here's a little glimpse of some products now in An Siopa Nollaig:
|Strudel & Spice Luxury Jar €18.00|
|Spiced Nutmeg Soy Tin €12.00|
I was also due to head to the Tea Rooms at Duckett's Grove for 2 p.m so we had a little bit of time to spare and Mark and I decided to get some lunch at The French Quarter Café. We had been before so knew that it was really nice and we weren't disappointed!
