You might expect mango wood to be fragrant and soft to the touch, but how wrong you’d be!
It is in fact an extremely solid and heavy hardwood.
These shabby chic tables have a rustic grey wash finish except of course for the one with a walnut colour. We have no proof that they would be durable outside in English weather conditions, however, they certainly give that impression and I feel sure that with a suitable finish they would be. At the least they would be fine during summer months as they are. We intend to run a little experiment and will keep you informed.
Should you and you customers need a little inspiration in terms of how to keep your seriously pampered pooches and moggies in the manner to which they have become accustomed – look no further, once again we at Roudham Trading are here to lend a helping hand.
For those more inclined towards pussy power, back into stock this week is the cat pod which sold out so quickly last time, few of you had the chance to admire, enjoy etc.
Now for something completely different! Plastic and metal lined seriously large and strong planters, ideal to grace the sides of swimming pools, foyers, patios, conservatories and the rest! Definitely worth checking out.
And of course not forgetting our seriously chic Water Hyacinth and Rattan Wheeled Underbeds for those of us with something to hide!
The 8 Great Log Baskets Offer
With no further ado we decided that, should you feel able to put together an order totalling a paltry minimum of £325 (excl. vat) from the following eight log/storage items, then we would offer you not only free delivery but, wait for it, a massive 15% discount! How’s that? (Fear not, discounts will be applied at time of invoice)
This offer is even open to those of you who have had the temerity to suggest in that oh so knowledgeable and self-fulfilling prophetic fashion that log baskets do not sell in summer, (of course they won’t if you don’t have them in stock!) well, I have to tell you – they do!
On to bigger and more huggable things – SUMMER! Yes, I know spring arrives first, which is just the time for thinking about stocking so called ‘French’ market baskets. These days they not only come in predictable plain and beautiful varieties, but for the young at heart there are new hip hop and happening styles that can all be filled with too many items for the beach, not forgetting their everyday usefulness for shopping at the local store. No more plastic bags!
The new Myanmar Range from Roudham Trading
For those of you who have not tried it, our range of grey wash basketware from Myanmar will surprise you with its elegance, grace and beauty.
Extremely finely produced, this product has a price tag to match which should not frighten you but be welcomed as there are many customers out there who not only appreciate the quality, but are definitely ready to adorn their homes with a beautiful item.
From a shopkeepers point of view it comes as a pleasant surprise to learn that it is perfectly possible to sell a wastepaper basket with shallow metal liner (the 08/9010G) for £60 to £65.
Whoever would have thought that a single table mat can achieve a price tag of between £20 and £25? Unbelievable but true!
Despite the size, do not be fooled, these are not coffins (even though one customer buried his dog in one!), but coffee tables, log baskets, toy storage and whatever else you can think of. The partitions are not just a novelty, but useful. They can also be removed if required, possibly to enable small children or even adults to hide from maybe Auntie Mildred? Be that as it may, these table chests are sturdy and will probably last longer than many of us! Prices once you are guided to them, are exclusive of VAT but unbelievably do include carriage – what’s not to like?
