The summer holidays (and our sale) have begun!!

So it's the first day of the six week school holiday - the sun was shining optimistically earlier but now it's grey again. Oh for a sunnier clime!

The shop is closed on Mondays throughout August, and we have slightly revised opening times, Mon-Fri 930 til 4, Sat 9 til 5.

Our SALE has started - all summer stock is reduced to make way for the lovely new items coming in all the time. Pop in and have a look - take a little project on holiday with you (Mini Mochi Hat, Summer Bunting, Erika Knight Socks).

Happy Summer Everyone!

Blooming Great Tea Party

treacle are hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party this coming Saturday, July 10th, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. This is a national event and we thought "We like tea and cake so why not join in"! It's all very simple - come along between 10am and 3pm, make a donation, and let us make you a cuppa and have a slice of cake (mostly donated by our lovely customers!). treacle are donating 10% of all sales made on the day to Marie Curie.

Here we go ...

It's been some time since I've blogged. The shop has been open for 9 months now and there are loads of exciting plans for the future. Claire and I are so encouraged by our fabulous customers, who are supporting us in lots of way (not least by becoming treacle regulars!). After all, our shop is your shop - without you we wouldn't exist!

We are currently in the throes of having the whole treacle website revamped, hopefully launching at the end of July. So the Blog is now an important part of us keeping in touch and letting the world know what we are up to. Sometimes you may find my posts invaluable, other times pretty pointless but as a new Blogger, I am just going to chat as if we were having a cup of tea and slice of cake in the shop!

Tell your friends to join, get talking to each other here, make this your space too. Treacle is going from strength to strength and we are very excited about all our new ventures! Kym
