    Hello and goodbye from Faye

    Hello there, it’s Faye here, Poppy’s sister! As some of you may know I left Team Treffry at the beginning on this year, after almost nine years of good times! I wanted to write and say goodbye as, over the years, I’ve talked to so many of you in person at shows, over the phone and via social media, it seems a shame to not say goodbye and let you know where I’ve gone! Small bee block by Green&Blue Small bee block by Green&Blue.

    I started a new role in January at a lovely company called Green&Blue, who are based in my hometown of Perranporth - meaning no more long commute! We make a lovely range of innovative and beautiful products like bird houses, bird feeders and bee houses.Peanut feeders by Green&Blue Peanut feeders by Green&Blue.

    I have to say I miss all the lovely team at Treffry Towers but luckily, as Poppy’s sister, I still get to find out what’s going on - and I even got to go and help out at the tradeshow in New York earlier this year. I’ve assured Poppy I’m happy to do this again! So, to you all, customers and friends, thanks for the great years and do keep in touch with me at Green&Blue, I hope you like what we do there. Faye xx

    A fond farewell....

    Hello! It's Sarah from the shop at St Ives, although sadly not for much longer as I will be leaving Poppy Treffry at the end of the week. I must just say that it is not due to the company or the lovely people but becuase of me! I work part time in the shop and also have my own little business designing stationery for weddings and occassions and have got very busy in the last few months and just won a national award (i'll tell you about that in a minute!). It was a very hard decision to make as Poppy and the team are just the loveliest bunch of people and have been so good to me, but I just need more time to concentrate on my own business. card at table Last year I was nominated for the 'Best Wedding Stationery' award by Wedding Ideas magazine. In December I found out I had made it to the finals and was invited to the awards night at Tower Bridge Hotel in London on January 11th. The magazine also asked me to create the stationery for the tables and winners cards so it was great to see it all laid out. It was all very glamorous with all of the top wedding industry suppliers all under the same roof. There were butlers in the buff serving champagne, a glass giraffe vodka luge and celebrity entertainment by Francine Lewis from Britain's got talent. Once we'd eaten our 3 course meal it was awards time and the stationery category was the first one up. To say I was nervous was a massive understatement! Then they read out my name and I was so shocked, overwhelmed and excited. I could only describe the feeling as I thought I was going to burst! Biggest smile ever and still smiling now.

    The whole night was a bit of a blur (not due to alcohol!) and a very sureal experience-one that I will never forget! After a bit of boogying and mingling it was time for bed but not before a photo with my trophy infront of the screen on the way out. Felt like a celebrity on the red carpet!  I lay in bed thinking; did that actually just happen, it felt like a dream. infront screen I am very overwhelmed, proud and grateful that my little business has won a national award-still can't believe it! Plus got lots of exciting  new things on the horizon too. If any of you are engaged and after some whimsical rustic stationery for your wedding, then you can have a look at my collections over at www.sarahwants.com. It's been a great few years working at Poppy Treffry and I will miss you all so very much. I have never had the privilege of working with such a fantastic, funny and skilled bunch of tea addicted nutters before! The Christmas party roller disco was a highlight of course-lost count of the times poor studio Sara fell over! I will visit the shop regularly and keep upto date on what's new over on the Facebook page. Thanks for everything-its been a blast and I have very fond memories of my time at Poppy Treffry. 2013-02-26 14.33.35 Fun times!
