Thinking back to the @bathlifemag feature on working from home that we were included in last year…Fortunately, I’m used to being at home a fair chunk and can easily pass the time with making, pottering, drinking lots of tea and catching up on social media, but it’s totally thrown me knowing I can’t just pop out to grab a coffee with friends or go on those spontaneous wood shopping missions. We’ve got plenty of ideas and enough materials to keep is going for a little while fortunately, so it’s business as usual production wise at G & T HQ. Obviously, our upcoming markets have been cancelled but many are opening new avenues for us indies to promote and sell our products which is so great! We are planning to take part in quite a few virtual markets over the next few weeks which we will announce soon, as the first one is next Saturday/Sunday. Thank you to everyone for your support, likes, comments and purchases, they mean the world at this uncertain time. Take care! …#Shopsmall #shopindependent #supportsmallbusinesses #staysafe #staypositive #shoponline
