  1. Mark & Deb have decided to close again as it makes greater financial sense for them to do so. Thanks for all your help, Valerie
  2. I'm sure it is in your case but we're in the centre of a large, and ever increasing, housing area that doesn't have very many shops or facilities, so although we don't have that sort of business customer, we are the only shoe repairer/key cutter in about a 10 mile radius and the locals rely on us, and we do get a fair few repairs posted in now as well. It could come down to running a collection and drop off service for the locals I suppose.
  3. The one thing that we really want to know is whether shoe repairs are counted as essential. Surely in this sort of weather they should be. Just wish we could find some guidance.
  4. Your memory fails you slightly Paul. It does have a treadle and Mark can get quite a good speed on it sometimes. Doesn't stop him moaning about pretty much any stitching he gets in though, particularly riding boot zips. I'll suggest looking for a flat bed attachment and see what he says.
  5. Do those of you doing so many bag repairs and zips etc. have flat bed machines? We only have one with a narrow patching arm and the boss really does not enjoy doing boot zips, or any stitching where he needs to do a long run, as it's difficult to support the weight and stop it pulling sideways.
  6. Out of interest what are you charging for a riding boot zip?
  7. Does that mean that the Engraving Workshop is still active then?
  8. So putting a poster up in the window saying PART TIME JOB AVAILABLE - SATURDAY + ONE WEEK DAY - SUIT COLLEGE STUDENT should be ok do you think?
  9. Does anyone know if we're allowed to use the words 'suitable for a college student' in an advert for a part time job? We don't want to fall foul of any discrimination laws but, equally, can only afford to pay a 16/17 year old's wage. Thanks, Valerie
  10. No wiggle room whatsoever in the height unfortunately but it's certainly an idea that's worth suggesting to him. If I can source a 65mm piece of wood that is, and then persuade someone to paint it and engrave it for me
  11. We have a customer who would like a house sign done in sage green, do any of you know who would be able to do that? Initially he had said green slate, but will accept laminate if that's all we can get. Length 450-500mm but the height is restricted to 65mm. Thanks, Valerie
  12. There's a great range of photo key rings, fridge magnets etc. at https://www.my-accessories.co.uk/
