The Result ..
The result of which was that I returned energised and inspired and bursting with lifestyle gifts and unusual present ideas for Gift It 2 this year.
However, whilst I was busy planning my exciting changes (some realistic and others not realistic at all but hey it’s nice to dream?!) Covid 19 arrived on our fair shores. All Spring fairs were cancelled and as a result everything that I had been planning from a stock and display point of view had to be re-thought.
So now, like everyone else, I am turning my focus to solely online trading for, I suspect, the rest of this year.
So my purpose today is two-fold; firstly to let you all know that I am very much open for business and secondly to update you on what has arrived this week.
The last few weeks of lock down for me have been actually quite busy.
Sorting out three meals a day for my family (does anyone else have sons who barely finish one meal before asking what you are planning for the next?); enjoying the wonderful recent sunshine and weeding the garden to within an inch of it’s life (just so that I had a valid reason to be outside enjoying the much-loved sunshine). Plus of course sorting through the endless and constant piles of washing that are produced by a family of five at home.
But I also, for a few hours each day, have been quietly toiling away in my ‘shop’. I have been pushing end of line stock into my Clearance Sale (there are still a few bargains to be had online) in order to make way for new stock. And what brilliant new delights they are!
New Delights ..
Part of my 2020 direction for Gift It 2 is to source a new style of homewares, inspired by the natural materials and ceramics I saw in Morocco. I have for a little while had my eye on a new supplier – Nkuku – whose earthy tones, natural hues and stylish simplicity is exactly what I am looking for. They are a UK brand, based in rural Devon, who work with artisans throughout the world, supporting and celebrating their skills by bringing their products to a wider audience.
So it is with great excitement that I am happy to introduce a few beautiful home and lifestyle gift ideas from their Spring collection. All of their products are handmade from sustainable and eco-friendly materials, which I believe Gift It 2 customers are searching for with increasing regularity. There are more products to follow in a few weeks, once travel restrictions begin to lift and goods start to flow more easily.
