Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone. I think 2009 is going to be a difficult year on the Craft circuit now we are officially in a recession, but we survived the last one and hopefully we will survive this one. As we start a new year of craft shows let us hope that people will be out looking for quality products at reasonable prices, where better to look than ebay http://stores.ebay.co.uk/G-J-Stained-Glass or a website with genuine hand crafted products http://www.gjstainedglass.co.uk/. One of our giftware products has been selling well over the Christmas period, the "must have gadget" for the lady about town "Handbag/Purse holders". These and other styles can be found in our ebay shop, just click on the link.

"Christmas is Coming"

As we head into the busy period for the shows, we can only hope that in this time of doom and gloom on the financial front that people will have their spirits lifted with the thoughts of Christmas and come to the shows to find something different to buy for their loved ones. Optimism is the key word I think as we start the pre Christmas shows. We have a few Garden Centres before we visit the Grassington Dickensian Shows in December. We will be at Bents Garden Centre on the 10th, 11th and 12th October and the following week at the Reebok Stadium on the 19th October. Check out the links for more information. We have a few new products for the pre Christmas shows (pictured are a pair of earrings made from Dichroic glass beads and Swarovski crystal beads).

* Sunshine and Sales *

Last weekend we attended the Cumbria Steam Gathering at Flookburgh and had a great weekend both with the weather and sales. Our Dichroic Glass Cuff bracelets seemed to be a big hit with the customers as we sold out on the first day.

This weekend we are at Woodvale Rally (a show we have not attended for a number of years). Today (Saturday) has been pretty good. The weather yet again has been sunshine all day and the forecast for tomorrow is good so hopefully we will have another good day tomorrow. I think Summer is here at last!

Our next outing after this weekend will be back up to Cumbria to the Rheged Discovery Centre at Penrith on 16th and 17th August for a Craft and Gift fair. Hopefully the Summer weather will hold out until then.

Summer Shows!!!! and New Products

After a successful show at Bents Garden Centre last weekend, this weekend we will be travelling to Stapeley Water Gardens on Saturday and Sunday 12th/13th July. The British Summer is not being too kind to us this year and the forecast for the weekend is mixed although Sunday is looking good.
This week we have added a range of Swarovski Crystal earrings to our Ebay Shop http://stores.ebay.co.uk/G-J-Stained-Glass. If you like the picture then why not click on the link and take a look at the other colours available.

Our Etsy Store

We now have an Etsy Store, here is a link http://www.gjdichroicglass.etsy.com/ . Etsy is an online store for genuine hand crafted items. We have not had chance to list much on there yet as we have been away on holiday but hopefully we should get some more things listed when we get back in to the swing of things.

This weekend 20th, 21st and 22nd June we will be at a Craft and Gift fair at Bridgemere Garden Centre near Nantwich http://www.bridgemere.co.uk/. This is a new venue for us so hopefully we will have a good weekend.

When we were at Gawsworth we met one of our Ebay customers who came to say hello. It is always nice to meet our internet customers so if you happen to visit Bridgemere this weekend come and say Hi !

This blog is to let anyone who is interested know that we will be at Gawsworth Hall in Cheshire on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (24th to 26th May). Gawsworth Hall is a beautiful setting for a show and as well as the crafts and gifts on sale in the marquees there is also entertainment for the family.

These photos are just a couple of the glass items we will be selling along with our Dichroic glass jewellery http://www.gjstainedglass.co.uk/. We will also have over 250 items for sale in our ebay shop http://stores.ebay.co.uk/G-J-Stained-Glass during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Here's hoping the weather will be kind to us and bring in the crowds!
