Our 2017 Christmas launch started with a bang on Thursday 5th October. We were so pleased to see such a number of guests pop in throughout the event, filling the store with friendly chatter and glasses of bubbly. Guests were treated to a lavish evening and many commented on how lovely the event was and how Vinegar Hill is their favourite shop. We appreciate all feedback from our customers, but especially love to hear these kinds of encouragements. The main focus of the evening was the launch of our Decadent Affair Christmas stock. Some of the most popular featured products were Vinegar Hill’s Star Tealights, Vinegar Hill’s Candles, our selection of books and jewellery. Our clothing range was also very popular with the guests.
Staff were very pleased with the turnout and success of the event and were especially encouraged to see people of all ages in attendance.
“I’ve been with the company for 4 years and it really was the most successful launch we’ve had.”
“The run up to Christmas is such an exciting time at Vinegar Hill, we really love getting into the festive spirit and celebrating all of the hard work from our wonderful suppliers and staff. “
Throughout the evening we were raising money for a charity called Maggie’s. Maggie’s offer practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks. Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need. This is a truly wonderful charity and we were delighted to have raised £500 for this great cause. The money was raised through a raffle, with all prizes being locally sourced including; a facial from Neal’s Yard, and a meal for two with a bottle of wine at The Retreat.
To see our new stock pop into your local store to have a look at all we have to offer, we look forward to meeting you and helping you find your perfect Christmas gifts or any gift at all.
