    We need your survey help (and there are rewards!)

    WE NEED YOUR  HELP

    Roses are red, violets are blue, please fill out our survey and help us to help you!

    Many moons ago, some of you may remember, we did a big survey where we asked you all lots of questions and we used your answers to make our plans and decisions, about how we did things, what we made and where we made them.

    We're asking you now to help us again. We've put together another survey because we understand that the world has changed a lot in the last six years. We're really hoping you won't mind taking 20 minutes out to tell us lots of things about you and what you think of us. It's big, it's nosy but it's super useful for us and hopefully quite interesting for you too.

    The new Poppy Treffry Shop in Padstow

      I had been thinking for a while that a shop in Padstow would be the perfect thing for us. It’s such a pretty town, I know our customers visit there and I have grown up visiting it as my Grandparents retired there in the 1980s. The perfect Poppy Treffry location!   A typical Padstow view, as seen from the new Poppy Treffry shop   So in October this year operation Padstow began. I contacted all the agents in the area and pretty soon had an appointment lined up to visit a pretty looking shop in the town.   work begins on the Poppy Treffry shop   family called into help on the shop   I went for a quick coffee before the appointment and noticed a tiny, handwritten sign in the window of the cutest little shop – Lease for sale! The shop I had come to see proved to be too big and not quite the right location so I phoned the number from the little sign and 5 weeks later I was collecting the keys (with 2 days to paint, fit and open!)   the new poppy treffry padstow shop   counter in the poppy treffry shop   The shop is right on the harbour front in Padstow, looking out over the boats bobbing in the harbour and next to the lovely Cherry Tree café. It’s very small, but very, very pretty so I hope you’ll come and visit it soon! view from the poppy treffry shop Poppy Treffry outside her shop in padstow

    Behind the scenes of our SS16 catalogue shoot.

      It's mid march, snowing, cloudy, freezing cold......and we're about to go down to Perranuthnoe beach to shoot our Spring/Summer catalogue. Chloe, our lovely St Ives shop assistant has 'volunteered' to be the face of Poppy Treffry this year and the poor thing is dressed in summer jeans and blouse trying to look happy about the fact she's got to get out of a nice warm car to stand in the cold while Matt Jessop, our photographer tries to make her look like she's in a balmy summer's day! Thankfully the sun did come out in between the hale storms and we managed to keep Chloe warm with pocket hand warmers and thick coats while we decided the next shot. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="|"]   003Jessop copy But karma is a great thing and soon it was Poppy's turn to get cold....we needed a shot for the inside front cover and we thought it would be nice to have Poppy strolling through the warm, summer sea. So off came the socks and winter boots and warm wooly cardi and off she went. [gallery size="medium" columns="2" ids="|"] As we took our last outdoor shot, the heavens opened and we all ran back to our cars and made our way to Poppy's new home - just up the road. After coffee and biscuits to defrost ourselves, we got stuck into setting up for the indoor shots. We made ourselves at home by moving Poppy's furniture around, taking cupboards off the walls, moving pictures and generally making a mess! [gallery size="medium" ids="|"]   Catching the light was difficult with the weather being so unpredictable but Mat had his box of tricks with him and the finished images looked great. P&M with sofa LR We had some extra help with Poppy's nipper - in exchange for her being able to wear her roller skates afterwards... 252Jessop Our new Spring/Summer catalogue will be released on 25th April so if you haven't done so already, sign up for your copy here. catalogue on table3 - SS16
