Closing Down Sale - Lots Of Bargains

I have made the very difficult decision over the last week to shut down the business.  The world has changed significantly since 2004 when I first started with a few bottles of Prima Got Flowers.  Paper flowers in those days were the thing for card makers and scrapbookers and over the years I have progressed to making my own in addition to the Prima ones. I also introduced sewn, knitted and crocheted items into my shop. With that progression came a changing way we spend money with the addition of so many pound shops and the like to the UK selling cheap imports and a throw away culture was formed.  The handmade marketplace now is very difficult.  People see they can buy for example a hat for their child or themselves for next to nothing whereas a handmade hat by somebody such as myself would take many hours and quality yarns and the price we have to charge just cannot compare any more. 

Anyway after looking over my accounts I just cannot carry on and the shop will be shutting as soon as all my stock has gone.  I have reduced everything that ebay will allow me to by 50%.  Everything has the best offer button on it and everything should be set up to either accept or decline your offer.  Please don't be offended if your offer is automatically declined.  I have set them as low as I possibly can taking into account that I have to pay postage/ebay/paypal fees out of the price so if it is declined it will be because of that.  You WILL be able to pick up some bargains.

An advanced note regarding paper flowers - I will be taking them all off sale in the next day or two and making up some bargain packs of mixed flowers so it might be best to wait a day or two if you wanted to buy any.
