It's always good to start a new year with fresh ideas. We've been blogging on an external site for several years now and have decided instead to start hosting our blog here, on our own website.
We are a thriving, small, independent UK business. We're proud of our customer service and of the quality of our items. We always like to go that little bit extra, whether that's arranging free delivery or providing custom assembly guides for each of our French armoires.
On this blog our aim will be to celebrate small, independent businesses. We want to help champion other service providers, who like us, put the experience of the customer first.
When it comes to buying and selling online all too often the leading websites are large US owned portals (such as a certain very well known auction site). Whilst such sites do allow small businesses to showcase their products to a vast audience they are often expensive to use, charging excessive commission. Most small businesses have no option but to pass this extra cost on to the consumer.
So, the message we want to promote is - wherever you can, buy direct. When you buy directly from a small business you benefit them by helping them to grow and most often you'll also save money. Nearly all the professional sellers on auction sites and other selling portals will have their own website. Google them, buy direct and help to keep small UK business alive!
