As many of you are aware, my opening hours have changed for the Autumn. I now open three evenings a week with more regular hours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
As I sit here looking out of my shop window, I have noticed the nights start to draw in, I can see beautiful sunsets from my shop window across the village green and it's great to see families enjoying a summer evening meal in The Thirsty Farmer.
Although it's a strange idea to open a haberdashery in the evenings, I have been truly taken back by the kind and generous support given to me, and it's great that many of my customers feel they can pop in for a chat and it's always great to hear their stories about growing up in such a vibrant and friendly community. One customer described my late night openings as very continental and liked the idea of walking her dog and finding out what's new in stock.
My shop has now been open for 8 weeks and although it has been a very busy few months, I have loved every minute of it, but I do feel summer is disappearing very quickly and as the temperature start to drop in the evenings, I am starting to think about knitting. I have carefully sourced British yarns in colours that can be knitted together to create wonderful designs.
My current obsession is socks and I will post my first pair of socks soon.
