November 2018

Into November and while the days are getting shorter we seem to be packing more and more into them! I love this time of year, which I have probably said more than once, but at the same time I dread it. To get to the excitement of Christmas I first have to get through the massive job of adding all the stock onto the system.

It is a job which I both love and hate. The Christmas order is input way back in May. So, when it arrives I have forgotten some of what I have ordered and I get a pleasant surprise. I then am able to start deciding what all my family and friends are going to get for Christmas. It’s also nice when the staff get to look at it all for the first time and like me start putting a few bits aside for friends and family. Food items are ever more popular as Christmas gifts in a world where we have so much stuff receiving something that we will use and appreciate, that isn’t adding to our cluttered lives is always a joy. If you are like me and getting excited about what has come in in all the brown boxes then follow Dunsfold shop on Instagram for a few sneak peaks.

Inputting all the stock and getting it ready is of course gearing towards our now annual Christmas fair! This year, the Shop’s Christmas Fair is on Sunday, 18th November starting at 10.00 am and finishing at 1.00pm. After this all our Christmas goodies will be available in the Shop.

This year we will be joined by Juliette who will be taking orders for Christmas wreaths and table arrangements. You will be able to place orders for turkeys and Christmas cakes, as well as sample some of our wine selection with expert advice on hand from Andy at Taurus wines. A sample of our ‘Dunsfold Cheese Board’ for you to have a nibble on will be available. PLUS, Special offers on wine and gifts will also be available on the day of the fair only.

And if that isn’t enough to tempt you then hopefully a free glass of mulled wine will!
