Dickens of a Christmas

On Sunday, Olney will be hosting it's annual Christmas extravaganza, fondly known as Dickens of a Christmas. The whole town of Olney decks out in Victorian stylee attire with a Victorian market selling all sorts of wonderful goodies. There will be lots of wonderful food stalls with produce from local farms, handmade items for those hard to find Christmas gifts and even a fun fair. Click here for further details, it makes a wonderful family day out. My little shoppe will be open from 10am - 3pm,so if you want to come along an experience Olney at it's best, you may like to pop in and see us and pick up a bargain or two or three or four at the same time!!!
Update on bargain boxes.....the empty boxes arrived today......yay!!! Well, partially yay anyway, we didn't get them until about 3.30pm so we only managed to process about 10 orders for boxes today, so the lovely Karen and I have a full on hectic day ahead of us tomorrow. Once we have cleared the backlog, I can evaluate the stock left and decide if we can put the offer back on the website, so watch this space, as soon as I know, I will post about it here on my blog.

This is the outer box that contained all our smaller bargain boxes.......it's huge.......thought I might keep it so that Mark can pack me up it in to take me home after we've cleared the shop....think I might need to be carried home after this little lot!!!!
Hope you get to have a creative evening.

Now THAT's the kind of box I'd like to fill up with bits and bobs still in the shop! I'm sure I could still find plenty of things to make my antennae wiggle!!!! Good luck to you, Linda, and to the lovely Karen with boxes tomorrow!!!
Lots of love from Sally xxxx

My boxes arrived today, thank you Linda, my order must have been in the lucky first batch to go.I haven't peeped inside yet as mine is a christmas present from hubby and I am supposed to wait till Christmas Day!! I am sending the other one on to Kate in Spain. Thanks again and good luck with the rest of your sale, and best wishes for the future. Jean x

Now that would be a great box to open...!! So far I haven't given in and opened mine - I may have to give it to my brother to store for me till Christmas, (I'm spending the day with him & his wife, 2 kids & his in-laws...)to avoid temptation!

Thanks so much Lin, my box arriived today, just as I was leaving for a craft day at Jeans, so I took it with me and opened it there. Everything inside is just so lovely, every item will be put to good use and fabulous value - I am very tempted to order another!!! Thank you so much for a very generous bargain xx

Mine arrived this morning, along with the one for Neet. Thanks for such a quick turn-around and enjoy your weekend - just wish I lived near enough to join in the 'Dickens of a Christmas'.

Mine arrived yesterday! It is waiting for Xmas (although I did have a sneak peak then resealed it before OH gets home!). Great value and all things that I will definitely use! Thank you for a great bargain! Maria x
