And we're open!
The official ribbon cutting was done by Myakka customer and Holby City actor Jules Knight, so with a pair of rather large scissors and after a lovely speech, the Myakka Guildford shop was officially open! The shop was packed with Myakka customers, both old and new and it was lovely to talk with customers who hadn’t been able to get down to see us in Wincanton but could pop to Guildford to see a selection of the Myakka collection. We are looking forward to getting to know some of our local customers and other Fair trade friends too. We were happy to meet Sue and Becca who are organising Guildford's Traidcraft Big Brew for Fair Trade fortnight - Saturday 7th March, between 10am and 1pm in Holy Trinity Church, Guildford.
It was a lovely day (despite the rather grey drizzle), we were so proud to see the shop looking so good, and it was lovely to hear that the visitors thought the same. So if you're in the area and had ever wanted to see Myakka furniture, accessories or gifts in person but were not able to make it to Somerset then do come and say hello!
