Off buying ready for Christmas trading

I am off buying in the next few weeks not only to restock my store but also in preparation for Christmas trading. I have been looking at what themes i will be introducing at Christmas time and what colour combinations. It seems crazy thinking of Christmas at this time of year....but by the time it arrives in store its well into October. I am finding every year things are arriving later and later.

With Christmas comes a lot more outdoor entertaining and parties; therefore i will be looking for products that will enhance any outdoor setting.....trays, hurricane lamps, glasses, water jugs, etc.
And with the renovation of our new home not far away i will also be on the look out for various forms of lighting, curtains and other bits n pieces.....cant wait.

Hi Amanda, firstly, thank you for your kind comments regarding my store, it is a shame you didn't make it in on Sunday! Oh well, next time you are "down South". Secondly, I have just caught up on all of your exciting news regarding your new Georgian townhouse! It looks superb, you must be busting with anticipation...have a great week, Tammy

Your post gives new meaning to, "Christmas in July!" Phew, it's nearly 100 degrees here today and hard to imagine, but the holidays WILL be here in no time flat! Looking forward to reading about your finds.
