CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK'S RACK
WE'RE COMING BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Destination Venus will begin limited re-opening on Saturday 11th July. We still have to finalise times with the cinema, but for the time being we'll be open on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons.
These are baby steps, and we will continue to proceed with an abundance of caution. We will have to put some restrictions in place and again, these will be finalised over the next few days.
We understand that restricted opening hours will make it difficult for some of you to get in to the shop and so free delivery in the Harrogate and Knaresborough area will continue for the forseeable future.
But at long last, we're coming back folks.
ALSO, I'VE GOT MY CAR BACK
Invoices away, deliveries tomorrow! Apologies to all waiting - especially those I didn't get to last week before my suspension broke.

This is clearly a far from exhausting list - and it's writer heavy because I tend to follow writers not artists. We'll be adding to it.
Go follow them, and find more women to follow, and listen. You don't have to agree, but it's high time that we listened to what women have to say.
