I happened to pop to Grange this morning…they were having internet problems hence no blog this morning!
Their Christmas window…wow…I knew it was good…but honestly you need to get down and see it…it is amazing!
Growing up in Newcastle one of our Christmas traditions was to visit Fenwicks window on Christmas Eve…it was magical…Grange window today took me back to my childhood and put the magic back in Christmas. ..thank you Grange.
The thought…the detail…the love that has gone into creating this…absolutely wonderful…no wonder you won first prize in the decorated shop window competition…totally deserved!
There is only one…Retail at St Mary’s Hospice is the official Facebook page for all of St Mary’s Hospice shops and their Warehouse.
This is how it should look…
We will never change the name of the page or replace the logo without notice…if you click on this page you can trust it is St Mary’s Hospice Retail Department you are talking to…search for Retail at St Mary’s Hospice…you can’t go wrong!
The pictures below show Facebook pages which should no longer be operating for St Mary’s Hospice…
If you’re using Facebook and you find yourself directed to one of these pages or any others that say they are operating for St Mary’s Hospice Retail…please block them…they are not the official retail page…
This is the official Retail Facebook page below…it’s pretty awesome and well worth following…don’t bother with imitations when you can have the real thing!
If you visit our Facebook page please like and share…let everyone know how good it is…you can find out all you need to know about any of our shops!
Our claim to fame this week…Barrow AFC manager Ady Pennock and player/coach Grant Holt visit our furniture warehouse!
Not only did they visit but they picked up a sofa for the manager’s office…along with a couple of other items.
Isn’t it great that local organisations see the value in what we sell and purchase from us instead of buying new.
I wonder if Allan got their autographs??
The magnificent Millom team have done it again…another new event…another huge success…how do they keep doing it?
There are three main factors to their success…
Millom’s manager, June whose vision and drive help make these events possible…an annual fashion show, afternoon tea, bingo, Christmas pop up shop…what will she think of next?
The motivated volunteer team, without their input these events wouldn’t get past the idea stage…baking cakes, organising tombola gifts, bingo, serving drinks, modelling clothes, donating food…the list is endless
The majestic folk of Millom who constantly come out to support the Hospice not only at these events…but week in week out at their local hospice shop…a shop that would not be quite so successful without the constant stream of quality donations provided by local people…not to mention all the things they buy too!
Love Millom…Love Events…Love Your Hospice!
Sneak preview of our vintage hats from Sue at Ulverston…
They’ll be on sale as soon as possible…aren’t they wonderful?
I don’t think they’ll be on the shop floor long before they’re sold…quality vintage items in great condition always sell!
Have you been down New Market Street Ulverston this week…our window is looking awesome…dressed for Dickensian it certainly has the shop and customers abuzz!
The shop has had a whiz-bang week so far…with customers rushing to snap up the Dickensian and vintage bargains…from faux fur coats to designer dresses! Rumour has it our lummy shop manager has just taken delivery of some vintage ladies hats in great condition!
Given that Ulverston Dickensian Festival is not too far away I may have included the odd word attributed to Charles Dickens in my blog today…not to flummox you…just a bit of fun! I wonder if you can work out which ones?
