Prompted by the necessity to replace rotting fences we have been able to rearrange things so that we can have alpacas grazing near the shop for visitors to see whilst keeping the entrance to the shop clear for pedestrians. This is proving a very popular idea.
We have also made some small changes to our range of products. We continue to sell our own alpaca yarn and hand knitted hats, mittens, snoods, and scarves together with a range of colourful alpaca accessories from South America. As well as our popular Country Socks we are now offering walking socks with cushioned soles and we have a range of amusing cards, mugs, reminder boards and coasters from Alisons Animals.
We also have some other interesting plans which will be revealed as and then they come to fruition.
With the arrival of the school holidays we have seen visitor numbers increasing, and as we now have the facility to accept card payments, the turnover is showing a healthy increase.
