It is the last week of November and we finally managed to remember where we had put the Christmas decorations last January! June & Betty had a very busy day sorting everything out and we are now as festive as the proverbial Christmas robin. As usual the moment we started to dismantle the previous window display we had a a run of customers all wanting to buy something fron the things we were carefully putting away. This had been a seaside theme, using our various donkey figures with or without riders, along with The Netmenders and The Fisherman’s Tale.
To add a little scale to the nautical scene, we had included some very nice nesting boxes made from reclaimed wood and modelled on the iconic Hastings black timber fishing sheds, which are sold by our son Josh via his on line shop www.greenandpresent.co.uk and suddenly from no sales of the boxes in 2 months we found we had sold all five of them as we tried to pack them away!
With our windows now shining and twinkling we are all set for Rye’s Christmas Festival which starts on December 3rd with the switching on of the Lights and the High Street Christmas Tree followed by a firework display.
More about the Rye Christmas Festival plans next week.
