Hi everyone,
I was back behind the counter yesterday and had a brilliant day.  We had lovely people in from Canada, Germany and I must mention the lady from Wales as well as from across the UK!  Some people came from the North of England and the South-West and bravely drove through flooded roads to get here. We were very busy but still had time for a chat with the customers as we packed their purchases.  They wrote wonderful things about us in our visitors book and even signed-up to receive our free Newsletter by e-mail which we really appreciated.  Our Newsletter is sent worldwide via e-mail.  If you would like to sign up for it, just e-mail us at and we will do the rest!

New Year's Eve, the rain has been absolutely pouring down all day but, Hungerford Arcade was buzzing with excited people looking forward to a night of celebration.  Some customers were buying buttons, jewellery, and other things to decorate their costumes and hair for their fancy dress parties! Others were buying retro kitchen tools, lovely glasses, dishes and plates, some of which were very unusual.  One gentleman bought a beautiful Victorian  silver plated pedestal urn with a lovely tap on the front.  He said that he was going to fill-it up with champagne (not very expensive champagne) to impress his friends who will love it and think its very "cool"!  Diamond rings were purchased, hopefully for a few New Year proposals!  (I'm such a romantic).  Me, I'm not sure what I am doing this New Year's Eve.  Have had a few invitations and our village hall is holding a huge party with live music, which will be great but, I am back behind the counter tomorrow so will need a clear head!  I and the management and staff at Hungerford Arcade wish you all and very, very Happy and Peaceful New Year!  Ritax
