Five years ago, my business partner and I put our very first order of polish in, for £600. I remember our very first stickers for our tins of beeswax. They were blue, cost us nearly one British Pound a pop and were just terrible. It was a great first experience of trial and error. But that is the beauty of business: learning from your errors and not being afraid to make them. And considering the fact that 5 years later we are still here with what I would say is a nice brand name and image (two of them actually) and two full time employees, I think it has been alright and I am not afraid for us to pat each other on the backs for this achievement.
But of course, none of this would have been achievable without the support of our clients, all of you. And it is hard to express the joy we feel when we know that people appreciate/wear/use our products all across the world. There are few greater feelings. So our thanks is to you for believing in us, supporting us and using the power of word to recommend us to your friends and colleagues. It truly means everything to us.
As part of our Thank you to you all, we wanted to create 5 deals across 5 days to celebrate 5 years in business, starting on Monday 19th which is our official Anniversary. Also, we have decided to discontinue the Driving Loafer collection to focus on other exciting ventures and have reduced them all now to just £60 (£50 Ex VAT). There are only 14 pairs left so get there while you can. Below is what is left:
Vashon model – Burgundy: UK7; Cherry UK8; Coral: UK6 and UK7 (2 pairs); Dark Brown: UK6, UK7 (3 pairs); Navy: UK12;†Sea Blue: UK6; Tobacco: UK7
Bainbridge model – Dark Brown: UK12; Snuff: UK12
Thanks again for keeping our dreams alive
