I hate to send you into panic mode, but there are now only 51 shopping days until Christmas (if you count Sundays). For you, that is – for me, 28 of them are selling days. I have 3 days coming up next weekend at Knebworth House, plus 25 consecutive (I hope I have the stamina!) days at St. Albans. I’ll also be demonstrating all day at both events. Exact dates are on my fairs page. So if you’re in panic mode, spare a thought for me!
So, needless to say I’m up to my knees in shavings (very uncomfortable when they rise above the top of your shoes), trying to make sure I have adequate stock levels. Trouble is, I don’t really know what that is! Anyway, this is the latest to come out of the workshop – although, strictly speaking, they have just come from the spare bedroom where I’ve spent the last week or so oiling them. Box them up tomorrow ready for Knebworth. The spare bedroom is now filled with salt and pepper mills, which all need to be oiled before we need the bed for visitors!
