Well, here we are; the last week of business for 2016. Just a reminder that Saturday 17th December is our last day open before we close for our Christmas Break. We will reopen on Tuesday 3rd January.
December has been an unusually busy one as we make the final tweaks for our Christmas Brides. We also hosted an ‘Accessories Evening’ at the beginning of the month which was really well attended (thanks to everyone who came!) and we put out our best Christmas Window yet!
Sadly we didn’t win ‘Newbury’s Best Dressed Window competition,’ our neighbours at ‘Nature Corner’ were joint first with ‘Willows and Blooms’ but hey, I am most proud of them! Thanks to Karen at The Allium Design Company for her help with them!
2016 has been a very busy year for me and as I look back, there has been so many highlights; Our Caroline Parkes month in February, the launch of our new Augusta Jones dresses in the summer, that floral dress, introducing a new designer Alan Hannah to our family and talking of which, congratulations to Kathryn who had a little boy, George, born on 8th October!
Above all it has been our brides which make the job a pleasure and a success! I won’t forget the blood sweat and tears (good ones of course!) of Thursday fitting evenings and the laughs we had along the way.
Thank you to everyone who has bought from us this year- I appreciate it and look forward to getting you all ready for an exciting year in 2017. And to any new brides to be, we look forward to welcoming you in the New Year!
So, I would like to wish all my brides, past, present and future, a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Mrs Jones xx
