It’s January, the skies are grey, and it’s all a bit flat after the hectic pre-Christmas rush and all the festive celebrations. So I’ve decided we all need cheering up!
I’ve made some 2013 banner neckerchiefs to give away via our EdwynUK facebook page. All I need is you to post pictures of what you’ve been up to this New Year.
As you can see from our EdwynUK Instagram and on our Facebook timeline Edwyn has had a few outings to the beach and our favourite Dog friendly Counter Café but mostly he’s been caught napping on various blankets….and not all of them his!
The neckerchiefs are one offs made just for this competition. The grey stripe is extra small, the red star is small, and the graph linen is medium – so all shapes and sizes please take part…….I don’t have one in large but I’ll choose another design just so large dogs aren’t left out!
So post your pictures here and tell us about your favourite places – even if it is the sofa! And don’t worry if you don’t do Facebook, just send us a photo and a few words to firstname.lastname@example.org and with your permission we’ll post them on our page. All entrants names will go in a hat and be picked out at random…. I may even try and video this!!
And should anyone want to place an order for one, just drop us a line……..
I just wanted to wish everyone, particularly our fabulous EdwynUK customers, a very Merry Christmas!
I am so behind with my own Christmas preparations I have had to enlist the help of Cartolina Cards to send you our Christmas message. If like me you have missed sending Christmas cards then download her fantastic app and you’ll be able to send some very beautiful Christmas and holiday greetings and perhaps feel a little less guilty!
For those of you who have got some time off over Christmas – enjoy! We’ll be heading to the Lincolnshire Wolds to enjoy a Christmas with family, if you use Instagram then follow us for some festive posts! And those of you working….well I hope your work is sprinkled with festive spirit!
It’s just about one week left until Christmas, if you want to put in a last minute order on our online Etsy shop you have until 12noon Tuesday 18th December if you want your items to arrive in time – note this is for UK customers only!
Alternatively you can come along to Spitalfields Traders Market. We’ll be there Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. And on Saturday we’ll be at Old Spitalfields Market with We Make London for our last and final day of trading before Christmas.
And if you’re still after EdwynUK presents after that then you’ll have to pop along to one of our London stockists: Paws & Purrs in Stoke Newington, Woofs to Kittys in Battersea or Hair of the Dog in Highgate.
So, good luck with your Christmas preparations everybody! Oh and if you do come along to Spitalfields, we can recommend taking a break for some mulled wine from Bedales…..
Yesterday we attended the Stour Space Christmas Market, now in its fourth year this was the first time we’d done it, and I’m so glad we did! Followers will know how much we rave about this place especially as it has the wonderful Counter Cafe is dog friendly and is right by the canal, so it’s a perfect stop off for a lovely canal side walk.
Our stall was directly opposite the Counter Cafe’s counter. This photo shows the one time in the day I could actually see the chalk board menu as there were fast moving queues all day for the delicious food and excellent coffee.
This was our favourite Christmas Market by far this year, it had a lovely cosy Christmassy vibe, the people were really friendly and the music and good cheer really made it a pleasure! Plus I had the supremely talented Bumble and Earwig sat right next door with her amazing felted creations….the dogs naturally were my favourite!
I certainly hope to return next year and really recommend visiting with your pooch over the Christmas holidays!
On Friday we met the lovely Rufus and his owner at our Spitalfields stall where his owner treated him to one of our hand printed neckerchiefs.
This is him wearing it – with the biggest grin I have seen on any dog! We told them about the Winter Weltaf walk at Wanstead Park today, and luckily they were able to make it!
Check out the Weltaf website for details of future walks if you have a Welshie or are intested in finding out more about the breed in the fur!
Here’s a peek of some of the Christmas Decorations we’ll be selling at Spitalfields and The We Make London Christmas Fair at Battersea Arts Centre.
We’ve been busy making and listing our special edition Christmas tree decorations in our EdwynUK Etsy shop. We’ve got some great gold fabric, which along with the red velvet makes a great backing for the red and natural linen the dog faces are printed on. We’re listing the different dog breeds (and not forgetting the black cat!) as fast as we can, just get in touch if you want one that’s not listed yet.
So keep your eyes peeled…. it’ll soon be time to decorate the tree!
This week we made a delivery to the lovely Paws & Purrs in Stoke Newington, a lovely independent pet shop which is just our cup of tea. As well as stocking essentials like food (including Lily’s Kitchen special Christmas dinner for dogs… pssst get it before it goes!) collars and leads, coats and jumpers, they also have a great range of dog and cat related goodies. Artwork, cards, lamps, t-shirts for little ones.
And now they have added to their EdwynUK range with a selection of doorstops, draught excluders and cushions sitting along side neckerchiefs and dog tidy pouches in some lovely new fabrics. So if you’re in the area, be sure to go check them out.Paws & Purrs just off Stoke Newington Church Street, 34b Kersley Rd, N16 0NH
