We're in!







So welcome! to our new premises - literally 4 meters away from our old but that bit bigger!



As you can see we kept the stone floor in the first half and have our big rug in the second half where we work the most!



The entrance is not much different from before - but will store all the packaging stuff to box up the orders - it helps to have it all in one place.

You can then either turn to the right, into what we grandly call our 'Warehouse bit'! or go straight ahead.

Straight ahead takes you into the bit where I will spend most of my time! I've positioned my table near the window for some natural light and fresh air come the summer (wishful thinking!)





We now have 3 additional packing tables in the center, which will be fabulous when we have large orders to put together and pack. They can be moved around too, so will make life a lot easier depending on what we have to do!





Rachel who helps me out now on a weekly basis has her own table too.



We are surrounded by all the things we need to make up, pick and pack orders. With all the stock behind in the 'Warehouse bit!'




It all looks very tidy and I will do my best to keep it that way. It's only when we are extremely busy that I get a little messy - often because time is not on my side.


So there you have it - Posh isn't it?


A huge thank you to my husband again for all his hard work and for my moving team who worked tirelessly to move everything, so all I had to do today was tweak things in to place!


I'm hoping that I will have the space to 'grow' now, for at least a year or two but I have spied my next space as and when!

Well you have to be prepared and think of the future!!!!!
