Very damp summer
So the Christchurch show was a big success. The Barbour gumboots looked stunning with all the colours on show in our tent. A real eye catcher. Thank you to everybody who stopped by and had a look at the wellies and thank you to everyone who bought a pair. We are still giving NZ$10 from every sale to Ronald McDonald house until Christmas and we raised several hundred dollars for that wonderful charity during show week. It's actually quite busy for this time of year in the welly business, thanks to all this rain we have been getting. I suppose, like me, all of our customers are getting out in their wellies to catch up with the weeding. I spent 3 hours today on hands and knees in my lovely red Barbour gumboots weeding around our new rhodos. It's incredible how much the rhodos have grown this spring but so have the weeds!
I hope everyone is having as glorious season as we are having so far.
Oh and make sure you place your orders early if you plan to give Barbour gumboots this Christmas. We will be very busy because we have been advertising quite a lot in New Zealand and Australia.
