Today saw probably one of the highest sales in terms of value and satisfaction!!!!  A lovely lady who came into the shop about two weeks ago – looking for about seventy gifts (all the same) for the cast of her production – Scarlet pimpernel.  She and I wondered around the shop – with me suggesting various items – all of which I knew I could get in quickly and in the quantity she needed……she really liked the idea of some pretty shell bracelets….I kind of liked the idea of a shell necklace sitting on a red scarlet lace/cord (perhaps sitting in a red organza bag….I suggested) Nope she really liked the shell bracelets!!!

 

So off she went leaving me approaching a long bank holiday weekend to try and raise my supplier of this beautiful little gift!!! (still thinking that the red scarlet ribbon-ed necklace would have looked stunning!!!!!! :(

 

Then on the Saturday, the lady turned up again……this time with her daughter!!!! I showed the daughter the two options (keeping my opinions to myself – for once!!!!) The Red ribbon-ed/corded shell necklace or the shell bracelets……..The Daughter at once selected the Necklace!!!!! GREAT!!!! I knew this supplier would be easy to get hold of….and I also thought that packaged up this gift was going to look stunning!!!!

 

Today (a week on) the lady called in and picked up her 79 !!!! Necklaces, all sitting looking absolutely stunning in beautiful red organza bags, in a stunning handmade wicker basket….I have to say the amount I put through the till was fantastic (before you think I am tight – A hefty discount was given !!!! ;) …………) but her comments and “thank yous” was just out of this world….I would love to be there when she proudly hands out those little organza bags at the end of her production…..

 

The little gift shop in Oswestry pulls a punch amongst the big guys!!!!!!
