Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 10th December. Yes, that might seem a long way in the future - over two weeks. But for small retailers like ourselves we need to be ready.

Hello and happy Friday. The clocks go backwards this weekend, the nights are drawing in and the big fella in red and white will soon be coming down the chimney.
