Well, we’re back! In fact, we’ve never actually been anywhere. Just that the last couple of months has been a crazily busy time for Rickwells Himalayan and so yes, we admit to slacking off on keeping up with our website articles (oops), apologies for that. Hopefully this one will bring you back up to speed, and let you know what has been going on and what will be going on – it’s all exciting stuff I assure you.
Okay okay you’ve been busy, but what have you actually been doing?
We had a mad rush leading up to our first ever market stall – Exeter Vegan Market at the Corn Exchange. For us, it was breaking new ground into something we had no experience in (if it looked like we didn’t know what we were doing, that’d be why) so we just wanted to be as organised as possible. And what a day it turned out to be! Thank you to everyone that came along and spoke to us, we were overwhelmed with your kindness and support which lead us to have a really great day. Turns out those late nights of getting our stock together and packing it, creating our business cards, pricing labels and designing our stall paid off.
What’s next for Rickwells Himalayan?
Well it was so good, that it took us some time to get over the whole experience, but now we have the second Vegan Market coming up on Saturday 21st July! I guess everything is mostly in place this time, but we still want to make sure we bring the right products along in response to the interest we had previously. Additionally, we are looking into being present at another market in Exeter on the same weekend, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
I’ve heard enough about markets now, anything else?
Product-wise, we’re starting to identify some of the more popular items and so will be looking to get more in stock over the summer months, plus adding one or two new additions. Although we’ve received some really lovely comments about our website, we are looking at developing this further to become more sophisticated and user friendly, with the ultimate goal being to have our own integrated online shop.
Additionally, we’re going to be launching a competition for you to win some freebies very soon via social media. That’s certainly something not worth missing.
Are you going to keep us updated this time?
Well, we’ll try.
Remember, we love to hear from you, so please do get in touch!
