Where have I been and what's the news?

Hello hello lovely people!

I've been missing for a whiley and Rock N Retro has taken a bit of a backseat so what's been going on?

Well, it's been a funny ole year for me peronally. Things that I thought were set in stone weren't and I've had to adjust to life happening in a completely different way than was planned. With that happening I decided I was going to branch out from stocking just jewellery at RnR.

While I was working away planning things behind the scenes the most awesome job ever (apart from Rock N Retro) was advertised in the local paper and I decided to go for it.

Weeks of planning followed, then the interview and 6 weeks ago I started a new job as Sales Co-Ordinator in our local hospice's Charity Shop!

So my "main" job now is with the Bethesda Hospice Charity Shop for 30 hours a week. I have a band of lovely lady volunteers working in the shop, along with a few marvelous men working away in other areas.

For me it's a wonderful job: every day is different, the stock is always changing and we're raising much needed money for the Hospice. They have to raise £250,000 a year to keep the hospice going, and as it's the only hospice in the Outer Hebrides it's a much needed and greatly valued part of our Island community. And being a Charity Shop Shopper at heart helps a bit too :)

During my busy start at the new job I decided to take a wee break from RnR but we're back this weekend with a fabulous goodie bag offer:

£20 worth of current pieces for £10
£40 worth of current pieces for £20

Both options are available in the Quirky & Fun theme or the Vintage & Inspired theme.

Once I'm all settled in properly I'll be running Rock N Retro on a part-time basis, but I've some fabulous ideas up my sleeve for how I'm going to do it!

Draw & Website Delay!

Muchos apologies people but it dawned on me today that holding the raffle draw tomorrow would be a bit silly as people who've ordered today won't have got their tickets yet, silly, silly me!

So, the draw WILL take place next Monday the 7th February, and to keep it all tied in nicely the new-look website will launch then too, yippee :)

January Sale, Super Raffle and Exciting News!

Oh the shame! Despite my promises this time last year I have been a very poor blogger, my many, many apologies.

Life sometimes throws us curveballs we weren't expecting, and 2010 threw some major ones at me. I'm SO glad that year is over and it's an exciting start to the New Year here at Rock N Retro towers :)

We've got a super January Sale on over in the shop - there's money off every piece in the store and some are running low on stock, never to be re-stocked. If there's something you've had your eye on now's the time to buy.

As an added bonus, every order placed in January will receive a strip of tickets for entry into our fabulous Prize Draw which will take place on the 1st of February.

1st Prize is your pick of products to the value of £50

2nd Prize is your pick of products to the value of £25

3rd Prize is your pick of products to the value of £15

And the reason for this fabulous raffle? We're busy working away on a snazzy new-look website, along with some refreshing new products and an easier way to browse and shop *excitedness*

So farewell 2010, you were a rubbish year! HELLO 2011, please be kind to me :)
