The Secret Garden Party and the Game Fair are two big events in Sir Plus' calendar, which unfortunately clash. The dilemma for Sir Plus is that whilst SGP might be funner, exhibiting at the Game Fair makes more commercial sense.
Where are you more likely to sell boxers, waistcoats and flat caps? A country show, or a music festival?
Therefore the space was booked at the Game Fair and the Secret Garden Party was all but forgotten. Then, the GF was cancelled, due to the poor weather conditions and we were offered a place in the Secret Emporium. It was inevitably going to be be a memorable few days, however, we were interested to see how the Sir Plus gear would be received in a retail environment different from any other.
We're delighted to report a great sales weekend . Flat caps and woollen socks were all the rage in the first couple of days, when the rain was pouring down. Then the sun came out and T-shirts and waistcoats were on. There was a bit of time in the evenings to enjoy the scene, so delight all round...
Big thanks to all who helped out, visited the stall and to our many new customers.
Now we have the dilemma of deciding what to do next year, fingers crossed the dates won't clash!
