Nearly missed it! This month has certainly been a busy one, cards and pressies for Valentines Day, pancakes and specifically for Frome, it marks the start of Window Wanderland Weekend, An event that lights up our local streets with its magical walking trail of light and discovery. (Can you tell I nicked that copy off the flier, haha!)
2020 is the year to free up time, push for growth and showcase my suppliers in a more focussed manner. SO, whilst I am busy behind the scenes, I'm offering my shop space as an exclusive platform for a few of my makers to showcase their brand under the Fromie Gifts banner. Starting in April and running til July I will be showcasing a single supplier in the shop each month...Fresh thinking is key to survival!
A wise man, Martin Newman once told me 'Retail is for life, not just for Christmas'. Being a shopkeeper is not as simple as just sitting in a shop, but just as challenging and important as being the CEO of a nationwide operation - I should know, I've been there!
