19th December 5 Days to Christmas
Well we are 5 days away from Christmas and we have been so busy elving we have forgotten to do our shopping. Madness really but there we go! So today is not only another mega showcase it is also our farewell blog. We were hoping to keep it going until the 22nd but sadly we have run out of time : But we are going out with a bang and a big bang!!! Today we are not just doing one showcase collage, we are doing three collages showcasing all of the fantastic shops we have featured over the past month and a half.
Since starting The Christmas Elves back in early November we have showcased over 62 shops and over 75 gifts- we have been busy elves!! We are happy to say that we have loved every moment of elving and we have met some fantastic people from the independent shops and artisan businesses along the way.
The original aim of The Christmas Elves was to showcase all the unique gifts from independents in the Cambridge area and we know we have showcased lots. We would have loved to showcase many more and if we didn’t manage to showcase you all – well we will do more next time because – we shall return or in the famous words of a mega elf, “we’ll be back.”. But for now we are going to start our Christmas shopping and enjoy visiting some of the great shops we have showcase!!
Now lets get down to business and kick off our mega and final show case for Christmas 2012 we have a great selection of unique gifts that some of you may remember and hopefully have bought!!
To every one who has joined in the retweeting and have featured us on their blog-roll we’d like to say a big thank you for helping make The Christmas Elves so popular!!! We’d like to end today’s blog wishing everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and remember SHOP LOCAL, SHOP INDEPENDENT!!
