Well…. It’s that magical time of the year for us aboard the Pirate Boat, the log burner is roaring 24/7 keeping the nipples thawed, the boat is nice and toasty and helping to ensure that the Badges Onboard HQ stays operational woooo hooooo….
Winter is usually the time to slow down for floating traders after the hectic summer cruising from festival to festival – but not for us. We book land events including Christmas fairs and Artisan markets in addition to selling on the towpath to walkers and visitors to the beautiful canals from our boat. We noticed when doing our land events that people loved our Badge Collections – These are groups of similar badges packaged together making them cheaper than buying all the badges individually. They make great Christmas gifts and Stocking fillers.
Our popular badges for the kids were our Christmas Santa and Snowman Collections, but most of all people love our Naughty Christmas Badge Collections, they SOLD OUT and we had to spend the Saturday night making lots more ready for the next day – these were very popular Secret Santa gifts for those with a naughty sense of humour (just like us)
