We have just had our stocktake done and our accountants have told me we have far too much stock so we are going to have a Clearance Weekend. There will be lots of goodies and the reductions will be huge. We have selected items with 50% off RRP. Everything else will be reduced by at least 10%, so come along and take a look.
