We have lots of new items for 2023 and seeing some interesting nautical products being designed. We will be adding a few hundred items over the next several weeks. Last year we had a couple of importers leave the room and we were fortunate enough to clear their showrooms so in our retail bricks and mortar premises we had exclusive stock, also taking samples from some suppliers so we had a lot of one off items – and we are sure we will find pickings in 2023, which is going to be an interesting and probably competitive year. Little us go head to head with that rather big old book company who now have a HUGE warehouse between our house and our shop. One of our directors ( my wife ) spends a lot of time buying stuff from them so hopefully they won’t be laying off too more workers. We stand by what we have always believed, we are “less expensive” than them. Please correct us if we are wrong. A belated Happy New Year!
