The blog will be our way of keeping you more informed about what's going on behind the scenes at snowhome. Kyle and I will post the latest news on new stock arrivals, design ideas, things we like and informal reports about what we are up to.
I had a strange day last Thursday. It started with a visit to a chiropractor which was a first. The Queen was in York for the day and as I left the chiropractor (in some discomfort) she drove past (she wasn’t driving) , my quickly taken photo captures her/her nose perfectly, only the Queen waves like that.
We drove over to Nantwich in the afternoon to spend the Easter weekend with my sister and family. By a quirk of fate Scott Matthews was playing at the civic hall. If you like Jeff Buckley or Nick Drake then Scott Matthews will probably be for you. It was great to hear him live, a really captivating and intimate gig.
My cheap kodak point and shoot is well known for its inability to take decent photos. So here’s a blurred image and one with the subject cropped.
A great new product has just arrived in store. Turn Key is designed by Isreal based brand Monkey Business, it’s the kind of product that will last you a life time and is guaranteed to make you smile every time you use it.
Buy yours here.
There will be a unique Pucket Bucket trophy for the winner and of course a bottle of champagne, all competitors will get a hot pie to sustain/console them.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game of Pucket there is a clip above, it’s fun, fast and incredibly simple. Quick fingers and a steely nerve are an advantage!
Entry forms will be available from the shop from Friday 9th March, the entry fee is a mere £2, Hurry though as there are only 32 places available on a first come first served basis. All of the entry money goes straight into the prize pot. Pucket is available to buy both in the shop and through our site.
It was a great show for the snowhome wholesale side of the business, as we used the show to launch the new “Word Map of London” which was well received and we managed to pick up some great new stockists. The show was also a great place to look around and find some new stock for the shop for new year….if you’ve been in the shop lately you’ll understand that it’s needed!
John also exhibited at HOME (on the stand behind) where he also launched some great new products, soon to be stocked in snowhome. (See his stand below).
Since last weekend, snowhome has received a healthy increase of both internet orders and footfall. A small percentage of these customers all have one thing in common…..they have read about snowhome in the Telegraph, where we have been nominated for ‘The Best Small Shops in Britian Awards’. From this feature we have even had a few sales direct to celebrities, I would love to say who, but I better not….I don’t want ruin any suprise christmas gifts now do I (you just don’t know who’s reading this blog).
Anyway, this is a competition, so now we’ve finished bragging we’d love to receive your votes. Please CLICK HERE to nominate us if you feel we are up to it. IMPORTANT scroll down to the BEST FOR INTERIORS section when voting.
I’m not a regular gig go-er any more but have been lucky to have seen not one but two great live acts in the last week.
An unexpected series of events this week ( nothing too serious ) have given rise to a little soul searching these last few days.
