I’ve been really quiet on the blogging front lately, work has been absolutely manic. I’m pleased to say that this has been with good reason though, because as of yesterday our new website went live!
Having been involved in a small business for over a year now, I’ve become acutely aware of how much hard work goes into it. The one thing we all have in common in British small businesses is the ability to support each other. That’s why when we relaunched our website, we were really keen to include some mini auctions for prizes sourced from British small businesses. We pay full price for the items and then take enough bids to cover our costs and make a small profit towards the running of our website. Our first two mini auctions are for gorgeous luggage accessories from Meebee Designs. This fabulous designer uses recycled materials where possible and creates unique, one off items that she makes by hand. Here is one of the beautiful sets she has made exclusively for us.
We are also running charity auctions. The profits from these go directly to the charity and the first one is for the amazing Maternity Worldwide who also receive ten percent of our overall profits. In our first charity auction, you can win a fabulous recipe book and support a really worthwhile charity.
Of course, the main event is still the fact that you could win an amazing holiday. This time though, you have a choice! Will you go for a week in the sunshine in the beautiful South of France?
Or would you prefer to stay in the UK and spend a week in a beautiful house right on the coast of New Quay in West Wales?
