Thank you, Thank You, Thank You

150 mince pies + 1 pan of mulled wine + 48 bottles of wine & 120 lovely shoppers
Bags full of Christmas shopping + 3 Thrilled Ruby Orchard ladies
On Friday 22nd November we invited friends, family, colleagues, bloggers, local businesses followers, likers and regulars to join us for an evening of festive drinks, scrummy nibbles and a little bit lot of shopping. We cannot thank you all enough for supporting us. It was certainly a very very successful evening!

So many of Howick's sceptics said 'another new shop in Howick, they'll never last'. Well we have some news for you, we are here to stay and are loving every minute of it!
It was an extremely busy evening and I am so sorry if I didn't get a chance to introduce myself and talk to you properly.

Here is a quick who's who...
Far left:  Jo (Bella Jo) - This busy little Mum is the maker of the best pasta in the Midlands, she made the hummus, meatballs, dips and salsas that were devoured on Friday night.
Middle Left:  Hazel - The men of my SA family run Howick Mirror and Glass from the same building as The Ruby Orchard.  Hazel runs the admin and HR of that business, she is always in the shop to help you too! 
Far right:  Nicola Tweed - Nicola joined the business in August after returning to SA from London.   She is our full time shop assistant, an IT wizz kid, blogger... you name it she does it.
Middle Right:  Hannah Keppler - Owner, manager, buyer, Wife to Greg, Mum of Jonah, looking a bit pale - I need a tan!

So... what was trending?  What will you be finding in your Christmas stockings this year? Our shoppers were loving...
As a little thank you, all of our shoppers were given a mini 2014 calendar - for your fridge, handbag or desk top. We have a few more left so just ask the girls at the desk for one when you're next in store
