Last year I was approached by the National Trust to see if I would be interested in becoming a supplier for them.
The National Trust was founded in 1895. It intended to preserve Britain’s precious heritage, both architecture and open spaces. The National Trust now has 567 spaces, covering coast and country, monuments and houses and gardens and parks.
This is an organisation I have always wanted to work with, so I jumped at the chance to attend an open day to gauge the interest in my products from shops in and around the North East of England.
I then sent some samples in for review by the head buyer and am thrilled to say that a number of my cards alongside a notebook and tea towel were accepted. My first order will be arriving at Beningbrough Hall this week, and I hope to get orders from other sites soon too!
Beningbrough Hall is situated north west of the beautiful city of York, and offers visitors the chance to walk around an intriguing old house as well as exploring the extensive gardens; the perfect place to relax on a summers day.
You can see more by visiting Beningbrough hall itself at: Beningbrough Hall, Beningbrough, York, North Yorkshire, YO30 1DD.
Below are lifestyle images of the products selected by the Trust.
