Events: Windsor 2004 Signing Specials


From Marilyn in November 2004, with ceramics added on 3rd December 2006:


Talents of Windsor (top room) Talents of Windsor (lower room)
Talents’ store has three rooms on different levels. The highest has the entrance on Church Street. The passage above is between this and the middle room, where the Signing Specials were displayed. Placing orders in the Lower Room with its entrance from Market Street. On the left is Joy Seward and her husband from Sidmouth - on a honeymoon in Windsor second time around!

Remembering the ‘feeding frenzy’ at John English Gifts last year when everyone arrived from Fortnums at the same time, I made a few suggestions which resulted in a system of tear-off tabs on the wall. Each tab gave the name, number and price of the item, whether it was in stock, on display or had to be ordered. You could either tear off a tab from the top or a number of your choice. This meant that all available information was in one central place, accessible to assistants and collectors.
