Well, the year has flown by and we're deep into the Christmas shopping season and festive cheer all round Maybe we can help you forget the world's troubles for a moment.
We celebrated our fifth birthday on Saturday 1 December which was also the sixth Small Business Saturday. Our magnificent cake by Whitstable star-baker Sally4Cakes featured the Store, with Steve carried aloft by birthday balloons and we were very happy that Small Business Saturday chose the cake as one of their national highlights of the day.
We're really proud of our Christmas windows this year so it was lovely to win second place in Whitsparkles' Christmas Windows competition. Our windows - and the festive decorations throughout the Store - were created by Whitstable artist Oywah Chung who also made the lovely window for the winner, our Harbour Street neighbour Buttercup.
We're still delighted to be part of the Refill scheme which lets people know where they can refill their water containers with tap water. And we're pleased that reusable cups are selling well. They come with a free coffee or tea when you buy and "double-stamps on are loyalty cards thereafter
