So I’ve neglected the blog a bit over the past few weeks, thought I should catch up a bit! Here’s a small selection of photos from the Chipping Steam rally, where we exhibited over the bank holiday weekend. It’s in the Trough of Bowland area of Lancashire which is stunningly beautiful, and the weather was fantastic for a change. Until the Monday when the rain and wind hit us and we found ourselves holding onto the new gazebo to stop it taking off! The afternoons events were cancelled, still though, can’t complain after two days of sunshine. We’ve had new posters printed showing some of our products in situ which I think is a really nice colourful addition to our stand. It was a great atmosphere, and we got a few good orders including our most bizarre weathervane yet – a vintage lawnmower design. The customer has a collection of over 300, some of which were on display at the show. They’ve just confirmed the design, so that will be getting laser cut later in the week. I also took plenty of photos of the vintage tractors on display – we’d love to expand our range of weathervane designs in this area.
In other news, we’ve been really busy in the workshop over the past couple of weeks, and I have several new weathervane designs to post over the next few days. We’re also working on a design for our first piece of scrap metal wall art for a customer in Sale – really excited about this as it’s challenging and a bit different to what we normally do. I’ll also be working on a swinging sign design today from the Chipping show involving a howling Wolf.
