We had a fantastic week at the Great Yorkshire Show.

Having set up a fair proportion of the stand on the Friday before the show, we then had some time to enjoy Tour de France in Harrogate on the Saturday.

It was an exciting and colourful spectacle that we felt lucky to be part of! Hopefully it has really put Yorkshire on the map.

So the final touches and cookware were added to stand 157 on the Monday. We had  decided to exhibit a Dual Control 3 oven AGA in the relatively new colour Aqua. It looked splendid on our stand – we had painted the walls a pale indigo and the overall effect was cool and trendy. A contemporary feel for such an iconic and classic product.

Along with the AGA Dual Control 3, we took a black electric Rayburn cooker, complete with induction top and a black 6:4 conventional cooker. Both cookers generated a lot of interest and will now be sold off at a special price to make room for autumn’s new stock (please contact michael@countrywarmth.co.uk for details).

Tuesday was a mainly fair day with the exception of a down pour at 3pm. We were busy with customers, selling cookware and textiles. We had some new range roller towels with a dog print which flew off the shelves as did the Sophie Allport hob hats and gauntlets.

Wednesday was even busier with AGA Saga mugs and Mrs Madden aprons being a huge success.

The show ended with a bright and dry day which allowed us to pack away easily and return back to Malton. It was a super show for us and we would like to thank all our lovely customers and everyone who visited our stand.

We will look forward to doing it all again next year!
