We recently began weekly 'blackboard fun' from our Padstow shop! Outside the shop you'll find a little blackboard and each week we'll be chalking up something different on there, sometimes a joke, sometimes perhaps something else... OK, maybe we're making this up as we go along a little bit! If you want to get involved then simply take a snap of the blackboard and share it to facebook, twitter or instagram using the #PoppyTreffryPadstow. Each week we'll choose a winner at random from those that have used the hashtag and they'll get a little PT treat in the post. You don't even have to come inside the shop if you don't want to, although we really think you should, but we love to see your photo's and we love to know you're there, like a virtual wave! So grab your phone or camera, take a snap and share with us using #poppytreffrypadstow and we hope to see you soon at our Padstow shop or on the world wide web! ;-)
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! 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. 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 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!
