Yesterday Heart of a Garden were at Ambleside Sports, an annual event hosting traditional sports such as fell running, Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling, cycling and hound trailing and a very popular and fun day out. The sun shone for us and it was lovely to meet lots of customers, holidaymakers, locals and friends. It was the first time we'd done anything like this - up to now we have only done online sales - but apart from being a busy and worthwhile day for us, the best thing was being able to see peoples reactions to our products and to be able to interact our customers face to face.
Our garden wind sculptures were popular as ever and quite a show stopper especially as there there was a good breeze to help do what they are supposed to do - spin! We also had interest and positive comments on all the garden ornaments, sculptures and gifts that I had taken and displayed.
It was also good to get to know locals and hear about their gardening projects, large and small. I offer free local delivery whenever possible, please contact me to enquire.
Our next venture out is to the Lakeland Country Fair on Sunday 16th August, so if you are local or visiting the Lakes and plan to come along please keep an eye out for Heart of a Garden and come and say hello! We have special prices for you on the day!
