Summer Bunting in the Mrs. Plumbridge Garden
Open House Days
Approximately so often I open my Cottage and host an Open House coffee morning and sale of many of my items. It has been such a success and very popular. A very informal occasion, it's a great way to meet customers on my mailing list and regular, loyal people returning to "Mrs. Plumbridge". I think it's just a really good excuse to do my favourite thing, getting out the china and baking cakes, it is so lovely to see old friends chatting again and new people meeting each other.  Also a very good opportunity for me to talk customers in person and receive feedback as I always prefer.
The "Mrs. Plumbridge Christmas Open House is held on
Friday 20th November 6 pm til 9pm and
Saturday 21th November 10am til 4pm!!!
There are many handmade and vintage Christmas gifts and decorations on offer. A big Thank You to all who came along for the Mrs Plumbridge Christmassy hospitality last year, mince pies and mulled wine. Have a look at the Christmas at Mrs. Plumbridge page for a glimpse of some things available.

If I run out of things orders will be taken for Christmas up until Friday 12th December. If you see me regularly and live near contact me and I can drop them round saving you postage or you are welcome to pick them up. Feel free to contact me for and question or details.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU!! to all who came and supported us and for all the many generous donations.
We had a FANTASTIC coffee morning here at "Mrs. Plumbridge" H.Q in aid of the Macmillan Big Coffee Morning Event to raise some money. On Friday 26th September 10am-1pm . 
It wasn't a sale day as usual but there was a raffle of some lovely prizes a mix of Mrs. Plumbridge items and some really handy bits and bobs from Dave's Market Stall. So well worth it. Also there was cake to scoff and to buy in aid of it all. It was such a lovely event.

looking forward to it. Come over and see us
there if you have some time free on 23rd June

Group Visits
Small group visits to see all my sale items in the cloth, so to speak, can easily be accommodated by arrangement, no problem you are most welcome. I will bake a nice cake and get out the china tea cups, as "Mrs. Plumbridge" does!!
Future Plans
At some point I am hoping to set up a craft club to help inspire others and build up their confidence to get cracking with either projects they have been meaning to do ( we all know those) or maybe new things people would like to try making for themselves. Its all good fun!
Keep a look out !!!
I will keep you posted.
