Our Outlet is now Open!

So as most of you know, we've had an outlet in York since March this year but we decided that we needed a little more space so we've not really advertised it until now! Last week we moved premises to somewhere a little larger and it means we now have more workshop space and more shop space.

Now, before you get way too excited and jump in the car, we are limited in what we stock as it is mainly for Polkadoodles products but we will be stocking additional supplies which will not be online because of postage costs etc.

We do have some really exciting things to tell you about all of this though:

1. When you shop in the Outlet you will get 10% off all the marked prices.
2. We now have an Outlet Loyalty card which entitles you to 10% off all craft supplies (additional discount).
3. Our workshop area is now larger so we can seat 18 people! AND you can get around the shop LOL! (unlike before where we were crammed in so much we couldn't move!)
4. We will be holding midweek classes along with our regular Saturday classes.
5. We will now be having regular demo days - woohoo!!
6. FREE table hire for craft groups! If you have a craft club or group and would like to come to the shop to craft you can have the use of our tables completely FREE for an hour at a time. If you wish to stay longer than this we will make a small hourly charge (please note that this is for adults ie over 16s only).

Now, we do have one more mega exciting thing to tell you about - our new Crafty Coffee Bar!!
Well, ok, a coffee bar it is not but as from 1st July we will be taking delivery of our fabulous new professional Coffee Machine and will becoming pro Barista's! Yes, we will be making Cappuccinos, Lattes, Mochas Americanos Craftyanos :D and any other coffee you are partial to - and tea of course! We will also have a few delish nibbles for you to feast on whilst you have your crafty coffee including the most amazing Brownies in the whole wide world from Gower Cottage which are world-famous and made by my lovely friend Kate in Wales (Kate is a food presenter on ITV's countrywise and is a supreme Browniemaker!). So book a table, come along with your friends and bring your stash and craft along with delicious coffee surrounded by lovely samples and inspiration - what more could you want?!

We are open 6 days a week but at certain times we will be closed because of being away at shows and demo's etc so please please check the website if you're making a long journey, we will try and keep the website diary up to date!  We are now located next to Dean's Garden Centre which is fabulous for getting rid of the other half, so ditch him there and walk 50 yards to the Outlet round the corner! Although I almost forgot - we have a comfy chair and will give him a coffee and a paper to keep him quiet while you shop!

You will find us at:

15 Bull Commercial Centre, Stockton on Forest, York YO32 9LE Tel: 01904 400527

So as you can see, we are super-excited about the new Outlet and we think you will be too! Please bear with us while we build up some of our basic craft supplies but let us know what you want us to stock and we will try and get it for you.
