We have also made some decisions in June about where we sell our products online. We of course sell here on our website but we now also can be found on Amazon and you can also purchase our products through Shopify on our Facebook page. As we have been busy with these two other sites for our products we have made the decision to no longer sell on Etsy. 

So onto the events that you can find us at in July! 3 events coming up and they should be fantastic.

First off you can find us at the Great Yorkshire Show from 11th-13th July. This is one of the biggest events for us for the year and we can't wait to be there again.
