Monday 16th November
It’s our birthday on Thursday 19th – WE ARE GOING TO BE 38!!!!!!! I remember the first day Mum opened Etcetera – I was the Saturday girl and Mum ‘encouraged’ me to wear Danish national dress. I felt a bit daft but remember being so proud of our shop and here we are 38 years later and Mum and I are still super proud. We have the most amazing customers.

If we thought we were going to be bored this lockdown, we were very much mistaken. We’ve loaded lots of pictures to social media, taken lots of queries and taken orders for call and collect/click and collect. Not sure what to call it really.

We’ve been working hard updating our website with fab new photos.

We are still receiving new deliveries – today was some of the most amazing textiles. Just dreaming now of new displays in the shop ☺

Thank you for your continuing support

Monday 9th November
So we’ve been closed since 5.30pm on the 5th November – heartbreaking locking the doors! But since then we’ve been working hard to put pictures and product info up on our Instagram and Facebook pages. We’ve got a new mobile phone and temporary email address so we can be contacted even when we aren’t in the shop.

The support of our customers has been lovely – it’s great to see them walk by and give us a wave and shout through the windows that they can’t wait for us to open again lol.

Monday 2nd November
It’s been two days since we heard that we were about to enter a second national lockdown and because we are ‘non-essential’ we will have to close our doors again for four weeks. We spent hours waiting for the announcement – longest few hours in forever.
