Opening Day.. with bells on it!

Yesterday Mal and I opened The Artistic Stamper Craft Shop and Art Bar. We were overwhelmed by the wonderful number of people who came by, stopped for a while, shopped, had tea and cupcakes, and spent time chatting!

 It was great fun, with a few minor hiccups…the credit card machine had a glitch, the new till had a bigger glitch,  and the fire alarm went off! Good practice in case of a real fire, but did anyone move? Of course not, they are crafters, and just carried on shopping!!! LOL

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came by, and to those who travelled a long way ,we had the bestest opening day! If you fancy popping by, we are open tomorrow Bank Holiday Monday from 10am till 3pm, with coffee, tea and cakes for you, a peek at our new crafting space, and a long look at our fun filled shop!

We are located at Unit 2, North Street Business Centre (on the Ashford Road) Sheldwich, Faversham ME13 0LN Opening Time Bank Holiday Monday 10-3pm Tuesday to Saturday 10 to 5pm Telephone 01795 597757
Hope to see you soon
Have a creative day

Well, we did look up and asked what the alarm bell was for, BEFORE we carried on shopping.

It was a good day Jennie and I'm glad it went well.

Hope to see you again soon.

Yay, I'm famous. :)

We had a great day and even found the cafe you told us about in Faversham for a spot of lunch.

Happy it went well, despite glitches!

Congratulations - what a fabulous looking shop.

Sadly I live far too far away to visit at the moment - but who knows when I might be over Kent way?

Great shop Jennie and the crafting space will be fantastic. I will be along to play for the day very soon. Can't wait till the 15th for the altered book day with Doone and Jo.
