Happy New Year to one and all. Here’s hoping that you all had a good break over Christmas and the New Year.

We had three and a half weeks off in sunny Singapore and New Zealand. A few hiccups what with 2 trips to the doctors for ear infections and then a broken arm 2 days before Christmas from falling off a zip wire! Oh the joys of being 5 years old and on holiday.  Apart from that we did see about 27 degrees every day with only 1 day of rain, can’t complain can I!

On arrival at my in-laws farm in New Zealand I realized that I had no wifi connection, arrh shock horror, how would I cope? What with four email accounts to check and run, a website to update and a facebook profile to keep interesting, let alone a few ‘Whats App’ groups to stay in touch with. Well the reality of it all was that everything would carry on as usual without me.

The shop itself at Owen Pine and Oak was left in the capable hands of manager Jo, and director, Marygold, and on a social media front, was I missed? No!  A few trips to an internet café and a few scheduled posts and it really was quite easy to forget about work and actually have a holiday, which was the idea.

Our end of year sale started on the 27th of December and so far we have been busy selling all sorts of things including oak dining tables and chairs, oak TV units and lots of pine dressers. Our sale is running until Sunday the 18th of Janaury and we have 10% off all stock and orders and 20% off all gifts and mirrors.   We also have a few oak bedroom pieces that have 30% off in order to clear some space for some new ideas in 2015. Don’t miss out on some great deals.
