.... the 'BIG' order that consumed my Summer.
90+ boxes that were filled to the brim with Christmas cards, place settings and decorative sticky tape. Well a lovely facebook follower let me know that she'd seen them in her local store, so I guess now they are 'out there' I can reveal where they all went.
It's to a retail chain of garden centre's called Dobbies.
I must confess until one moved into our local area I had never heard of them.
But they are big stores - 30+ stores around the UK, although predominately in Scotland and from 2008 they joined the giant that is Tesco's.
They do have a website and above is the interesting history of how the business has grown.
So after the tip off, I have been to visit our local store and there they were, dots and spots cards amongst their other Christmas bits and pieces.
I must say I did feel proud to see them there, I always get that little tingle of excitement when I see my stuff in a shop and when you lovely people out there, tell me where dots and spots goodies have been seen.
Fingers crossed they sell well and we will be doing it all again next year!!
