It's now 3 years since Dairy House took on its new style - 3 years during which we have continued to grow - in the number of dealers, the amount of space and also sales. We know that we have been very lucky but it has not been purely down to luck.
All our dealers have contributed time and energy to ensure that their stock is replenished regularly and looks its best; and they spread the word wherever they go. We continue to advertise both locally and in the glossies to keep the Dairy House name in people's minds. Our customers continue to support us, with new 'regulars' appearing almost daily! The 2 Vintage Textiles & Costume Days have brought in the crowds, many of whom have revisited and become Dairy House friends. We pride ourselves in offering stock at realistic prices and like to think we have something for everyone. You may have a tiny cottage or a mansion, an old property or a modern home needing a little character. Our furniture and decorative items range in size, thus promising the likelihood of the right item being found.
We like to think we have 'got things right' but, of course, are always open to suggestions from our private and trade customers.
This post has been edited as unexpected family illness has arisen preventing us from going ahead with the planned expansion at the present time. I'm sure all will be well in time, but it is obviously not the right time to be organising new premises.
Hopefully normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
