Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair

I've had a most satisfying day starting the preparations for the Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair.  This year it is the only fair we will be attending, so please squeeze it in your diaries if you can: 28 Nov - 2 Dec on the Piazza in Truro.

Although the pitch has been booked for months - our usual, right beside M&S - there has been little time to do more than talk grandly about what we should change about our stand this year. So much easier in theory than practice!  And I've decided there are upsides, as well as downsides, to having a graphic designer in the family. Whilst making small talk in the car for 5 minutes, The Graphic Designer not only rubbished my suggestions but proceeded to come up with what I had to admit were far better ones.  Every cloud, and all that ...

What was most satisfying today was discovering that our new gift product 'A Year in Cornwall' sits perfectly on our old shelving.  It's almost as though we planned it!  And this afternoon I picked up our new calendar display stands branded for us by Mid Cornwall Printing.  The Graphic Designer had a hand in those too, and I think she was right to keep them simple and understated.  Next thing she'll suggest is payment!
