Birds in the Barn News

It is with much sadness that I will be retiring at the end of January so the “birds” will no longer be in the barn!!! We will trade as usual until Christmas with lots and lots of bargains, the  workshops and demos will continue until the second week in January with the doors finally closing on the 31st January for the last time . I would like to say a big thank you to all our loyal customers, who have made the store such an enjoyable and wonderful experience for the past 7 years, we could not have done it without you.
