So today we had a feature about us in the Manchester Evening News! How exciting! We had the journalist come down to see us, interview us and take pictures of the store last week so have been waiting nervously for the feature to come out. Today we were told was the day so we rushed out early this morning to buy loads of copies! If you haven't seen or read the article check it out in todays news or online here - Thriftette Feature!

It was alot of fun to do and is amazing to see our shop in the paper, we are so proud!

Love the thriftettes x

Trafford Parsons Artwork

So we spent yesterday with the very talented Trafford Parsons who came to do some artwork in our shop with us.  Armed with a stencil and various cans of spray paint he got to work.  The first problem arose when his ladder wouldn't reach high enough and after trying to balance the ladder on a cheap ikea table we had an accident.  Luckily the only damage we did was to the table.  So after finally finding a suitable ladder, the spray painting began.  It wasn't long before Trafford was telling us about his days as a roadie and we lost track of time.  We are so happy with how the shop looks now - we no longer have to stare at white walls.  We have already started naming each of the deers who, although all done with the same stencil, seem to have varying characteristics.  Come into the shop and check it out, even name a deer if you want!
