hot cakes

Roll up roll up!!
Not only have I been a creative advisor and part window dresser for my friend Rachel
whilst she was setting up her new business Rosie Lea Tea House and Bakery
in Brockenhurst in the New Forest.
I am now selling my wares in the tea shop!!!!
The gingerbread men are selling like hot cakes!
Rachel has kindly set up an area to sell local handmade products.
Recognise anything?
I knew there was a reason for my rsi!
gingerbread and crochet bunting
now sold
If you are local to the area then do pop along,
you will be treated to delicious homecooked cakes and a choice of loose teas,
all served in lovely vintage china with proper teacups!
Rachel also runs her events and wedding catering business from the premises,
including the baking of bespoke cakes, gluten free etc..
This the first time I have sold anything in an actual real life shop!!
Watch this space for some exciting window changes,
and maybe even selfsewn online!

*need some sweet looking labels for your crafty products?
  selfsewn tags and business cards produced here..just drop me an email.

How exciting, well done. I make felt ornaments every Christmas for nursery/school fairs. I've done gingerbread men each year, but this year owls are ruling the roost!

Victoria said...

It must be fantastic to not only see the things you made in a shop, but to know they are selling well. I'm not surprised it's all selling well.

I'm loving the gingerbread men. You should definitely apply for Handmade Winchester next year. I think you'd fit right in.

Good luck to Rachel with her venture. I will make sure we pop in next time we go there for a walk. And well done to do. All your handmade items are beautiful.
