On Saturday I turned our house into a shop and invited local friends to come and view what I make. I tempted them in with some homemade flapjack and our house was full to bursting :-)
I'm so pleased that people turned up and were keen to come and have a look at what I do. It was great to be able to discuss designs with them and offer to personalise the items so they could have just what they were looking for.
Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a success. I can recommend doing an open house event, particularly if you know quite a few people locally who don't have the internet so can't browse your shop online.
I shall definitely think about doing another one, maybe later in the year once I've got my Christmas cards made up.
