Sand and Seagulls is Five!

5-year-birthday-celebration-balloon  We all say from time to time ‘Wow, time really flies’ or, ‘Time goes too fast’. This is true of Sand and Seagulls. I can’t quite believe Sand and Seagulls has been running for five years.

Set up in the summer of 2013 whilst on maternity leave with my eldest Rudy, Sand and Seagulls has come such a long way. There’s been a few quiet patches, when other areas of my life have taken over. But I have never closed my order book and am so close to my 10,000th sale.

There’s been lots of highs and lows; my business has featured in many blogs, there’s been a few mentions in wedding magazines. Sand and Seagulls has won Twitter awards, I’ve attended many craft fairs and charity events. I’ve had stands in local emporiums and shops. My product range has grown and developed both on the jewellery side, and more recently into coastal homeware. I support a number of other small businesses showcasing their products on my site. I have raised money for many charities including my ‘I refuse to sink necklace’. I’ve had orders placed from all over the world including Canada, United States and Germany. I have met so many lovely and inspiring people along the way, and I have a wonderful, loyal customer base.

To each and every one of you, thank-you. And I can’t wait to see what the next five years brings.
