Hi Yvonne
I Met a few ladies in Birmingham who suggested I ask you to add our company to your blog so I hope you don't mind me asking you this. We are based in Fethard Co.Tipperary and have a shop open at weekends and have an online website We supply a range of card making supplies and are always adding to our selection. If you have any ideas of what we should stock too that would be great to hear.

Come on ladies we need to be buying Irish.
I  would love feed back on this,
so if like me you buy most of your craft supplies in the UK
Let the Irish suppliers know Why,
What do you want?
and what can they stock that you are buying overseas.
and why do you buy overseas?

Start the comments today
and help the Irish suppliers to stay in business.
