We’re going to be busy again this November. Making hay whilst the sun shines and all that.
Although, thinking about it, it’s going to be November so the sun aint gonna be shining. So maybe a better saying would be: “let’s spend a load of money and book up those Christmas show stands because everyone’s looking for Christmas gifts and we sell excellent Christmas gifts so we need to put our gifts in front of those people so that they spend their hard earned money on the fruits of our hard earned year round labours.”
But that isn’t quite as snappy. So we’ve booked up our November to ‘make hay whilst the sun shines’ and hopefully make enough money to keep producing the gifts that we’re proud to create.
It really is that simple.
Now, because we spend so much money on these stands, the organisers give us some complimentary tickets and we would like to offer them to you! We’re not going to run a competition because we find that it ends up on some ‘money saving’ site that has a url to directly click through and even an answer that you may need; and then we have 1000s of requests from professional competition enterers. (One time, a bright spark had put the wrong answer up so we had to discount around 90% of the entrants). It’s not that we’re judging competition enterers (see what I did there). I can remember buying “Take a Break” in the late 1980’s and armed with just a few postcards and a book of stamps, I would very happily use my free stuff – particular favourites included the sun-cream and the bright blue mesh shower pouf to exfoliate my legs in the shower (do you remember those? awful things). It’s just that we’re not Ambre Solaire and we don’t need tens of thousands of email addresses for people who simply aren’t going to see us on a supermarket shelf.
So, please only respond to us if you genuinely want a pair of tickets to one of the shows. You are under no obligation to buy anything, to visit our stand or even to like us or follow us on our feeds (although that would be very nice). We would just like to know that we’ll be sending out codes to claim tickets to people who will make use of them.
So, if you’d like the chance to win a set of 2 tickets to either the Spirit of Christmas at Olympia or to Country Living Christmas in Islington, then please EMAIL ME and tell me which show you would like to attend. That’s it. I won’t save your email address or bother you or do anything.
I’ll simply pick 15 people at random on September 30, which should give you lots of time to plan your trip.
We also have ONE precious set of tickets to the Wealden Midwinter Fair to give away so if you’d prefer to not come into London, do put Wealden as your preferred choice.
