This has been a super exciting Christmas for us, our Fifth in Helmsley and the best yet. It’s been wonderful helping you all choose your gifts and seeing so many of our regular customers – some of whom we see once a year on Christmas Eve only for their special gifts, some of them who we see weekly, or monthly, but all who are equally supportive of us. The run up was especially hectic with #smallbizsat and my trip to No 10 for the National launch, such a great initiative supporting independent small businesses, which I hope will be an annual event nationally and also in Helmsley. We are lucky here, to have so many quality independent shops and I have managed to do all my Christmas shopping locally with the help of our colleagues, especially Hunters of Helmsley our neighbours.
We have just one more day trading to go, tomorrow, on Christmas Eve when we will be opening until 5pm. Then a few days off, and reduced opening throughout January to rest and recuperate before the new season jewellery shows in early February and the exciting New Year of 2014 ahead.
