The Spring Bank Holiday is almost upon us and for everyone in Suffolk that means one thing - The Suffolk Show! Once again Barretts will be at this superb festival of Suffolk with retail stands in the Lifestyle Pavilion, Blue 361 - Stand D9 (next to the Flower Show). Now, before I go any further let me tell you the two excellent reasons to come and visit us:
1. We are giving a fantastic, not to be repeated, discount of at least 20% off everything on our stand! This includes all the Sophie Allport range of bags and kitchenware, the brand new OS Map of Woodbridge range, and some gorgeous new duvet sets, which you can have a look at below.
2. You can enter our prize draw to win a stunning Voyage Floor Cushion, worth £150! It's the favourite 'Stag's Head' which has proved so amazingly popular. So a visit to the Barretts stands is simply a ‘no-brainer’.
The Show is always a great fun couple of days, and mad busy too with some 90,000 people visiting over the two days. As ever we’ll be bringing along some new and exciting linens, throws, and gift ideas with us. So I thought I’d use this blog to give you a sneak preview.
Before I do that it’s worth pointing out that there’s been a bit of change around this year in the Lifestyle Pavillion. Last year the Lifestyle Pavillion moved from the permanent building near the President’s Ring (a wonderful location it has to be said) to a marquee next to the Flower Show. Also if you’ve visited the Lifestyle Pavillion at the Suffolk Show before you will know there are usually four large showroom areas, surrounded by retail stands. For four years we have displayed our beautiful flooring, soft furnishings, sofas and furniture in one of these Showroom areas, However… This year they’ve decided to do away with the Showroom idea completely, which we think is a shame. Instead there will be a demonstration area with some exhibitors giving talks. Not sure how that’s going to work but what I am sure about is that our retail stands will be packed lovely things with at least 20% off everything so well worth a visit.
So, what have we got for the Suffolk Show 2016? Well, there are two great value bright duvet sets, Adventure and Summertime (wishful thinking maybe!):

Next we have the unique range of OS Map goodies centred on our fabulous town of Woodbridge. The centre piece is the OS Map Deckchair (you might have seen it in our window, and it's caused quite a stir). It's sturdy, comfortable and fully suitable for outdoor use. There’s a whole range of lovely gifts – mugs, coasters, trays and chalkboards.
