I’m writing to tell you just how busy a week we just had. Last weekend we had our first stall at Ballymaloe Craft & Design Fair. It was our first occasion to actually sell our Irish Signs to the public. The reaction was great! Everyone was attracted to our Irish Gift Stall and it was a pretty site to see all their faces light up with memories of old Irish Sayings they all could relate to. Along with these items we also sold Personalised Christmas Signs and Christmas Gifts to families with little children. Ballymaloe staff were so lovely to us and the food and location was magnificent. We stayed with Margaret in Castlefarm Bed & Breakfast and she was so nice to us. The view overlooking Ballycotton lighthouse was fantastic. The people in East Cork are all so friendly and easy going that we will be visiting again for sure.
At the end of the day the Allens in Ballymaloe Cookery Shop were so approachable and took some of our Irish Signs to sell in their shop. We were very excited to see our products on sale with other Irish products that they have!
This week we have orders coming in from our outlets around the country and so all these shipped today and their customer will collect their Personalised gifts at the weekend.
Off to Kilmaley Christmas Market tomorrow evening and so we are busy preparing for that. Perhaps we might see you there. Our Christmas stall will be lit up and Christmas themed throughout.
