We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who came along to help us celebrate our 4th birthday in true OHC style this weekend – we had a blast!
As always we were blown away at the support we received – it humbles us to see how many loyal customers love to come and support our little shop – be it in person, on social media or just in spirit!
Of course, we couldn’t do any of what we do without our loyal (and frankly frickin awesome) OHC Makers, lots of whom came out in force to lend a hand; serving customers, packing bags, serving refreshments, selling raffle tickets, chatting with customers and generally filling the place with lovely creative vibes!
We had the very lovely Angie of Craft Tea Company serving samples of her tasty teas and Ruth of Dollop&Stir stamping personalised spoons for you while you waited – both were kept very busy!
Taking turns manning positions in the shop were Claudia of Kitsch-ina, Zoe of Urban Magpie, Mary of Gemstone Boutique and Jo of CherryPeg.
Doing a sterling job of greeting and serving drinks and fudge was Shelly, the hostess with the mostess, of Auntie Shelly’s Little Cottages.
And lots of our other makers who couldn’t attend in person sent us super social media messages – one of our faves was this one by Mark of Boo Boo & Ted, who even managed to get fellow makers Jil Made This, Life is Better in COLOUR and Life’s Big Canvas in his post too
We had a HUGE grand prize raffle with over £400 worth of prizes donated by our Makers, all of which went to one lucky winner, Sarah, with ticket number 44 (who we still haven’t heard from yet!) – hopefully she’ll be able to collect her winnings soon!
We handed out goodie bags and OHC shopper bags left, right and centre – here’s our first lucky recipient of the day!
And we owe all of our success to you guys – our cracking customers, fabulous family and friends and marvellous makers – you make everything we do possible, and we wouldn’t still be here 4 years down the line if you weren’t there for us – a true Collective in every sense of the word!
