What goes on round the back of the shop?

Customers visiting our shop (Found and Seek in King Street Carmarthen) are always met with warm greetings. That face to face contact is something we love and its something often commented on in our customer reviews “This shop is full of wonderful finds, lovely local crafts and beautiful vintage goodies. It is rare to find such a warm welcome, a family run business and that is clear from the welcome you receive when you enter the shop. Nothing is too much trouble.”……… “It is my favourite shop in West Wales”.  https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g209942-d12349104-Reviews-Found_and_Seek-Carmarthen_Carmarthenshire_Wales.html#REVIEWS One person in often singled out for her cheerful...

The new shop is airy and spacious (no doubt we will manage to fill it up!) and it has a huge deep window which means we can really pull...

We didn’t know each other at all when we both set up within a couple of months of each other but it became clear that our customers and...
