High Rockabilly

We enjoyed the Twinwood Festival last weekend, although the weather let it down a bit at times.  The sun did peek through a few times but on the whole it was more like Autumn than Summer!  That's English weather for you, so unpredictable. Still, it was good meeting lots of our lovely customers and catching up with friends, and we enjoyed going out in the evenings there when we finished working. We arrived back late last night and are already busy preparing for our next weekender - we sail on the overnight ferry to Spain on Sunday for the High Rockabilly.  We'll have a few days of relaxing in the sunshine (bliss!) before setting up our stall to trade there from Thursday onwards.

Boxes boxes everywhere!

We had loads of stock arrive this morning that we've been waiting for since last week, and it all arrived within half an hour of each other, so after a visit from both UPS and DHL we were inundated with boxes!

Quite a few of the boxes contained our 'Nancy' style wedge sandal, which has finally arrived in red (we've had them in stock in cream leather since June). They've had their photos taken and put on the website already within 2 hours of arriving on our doorstep! They're an exact copy of the original vintage pair we had, and are limited editions with just 300 pairs being made in this style/colour. Available in UK sizes 3 through to 9.

Also arriving this morning, our new buffalo hide belts. These are excellent quality, and have a hand-stitched design in cream. We've had these made with a removeable buckle to enable a favourite/different buckle to be attached within seconds.

Amongst all the boxes received this morning we also had some fabulous samples of our other belts, ladies saddle shoes and men's shoes that will hopefully be in stock later this year.

Apart from moving boxes around, today we're busy packing ready to work at the Twinwood Festival, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.  We'll be there from Friday to Monday. Looks like it's going to be a busy one, we've been informed that despite increasing its capacity it's now sold out.
