Thriplow Daffodil Weekend

We really enjoyed showing the walking sticks at the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend this year!

It was good to meet the public to get some valuable feedback about walking sticks. We certainly met some characters! One gentleman showed us a fantastic (very) crooked hazel stick with the ball top handle made from (wait for it) his hip bone! He had had both hips replaced and on one occasion he asked to take his old hip bone home with him and use it as a walking stick handle!

I was so surprised I nearly dropped it on the floor!

The best thing about the stalls for me was the fudge stand and for Emily the dried flowers, 3 bunches of South African Proteas for £5!

We mostly sold our colourful umbrellas, some folding sticks and the seat sticks.
