There will be street artists, live music, boutique stalls, artisan food and gifts not to mention the unique shops situated in The Suffolks.

    If you plan to visit, do pop in to see us and if I'm not there you will most likely find me loitering at one of the glorious cake stands! :-)

  • Marimekko ..... The Art of Print Making

    This morning I have been busy at the computer, working on product info and images for the website, in readiness of a Marimekko delivery due next week. I came across some truly gorgeous lifestyle images and thought I would share them with you all .... At Skandic Hus, I realise how incredibly lucky we are to have access to such stunning images, it's not just that they are pleasing on the eye but they help to bring the website "alive".

    With websites, the challenge is always about how to engage and build relationships with customers  .... after all, we can't jump and down and excitedly tell you about the latest Marimekko teapot in person, so we have to employ different methods. At Skandic Hus online, I like to think we use fabulous imagery, we also pop in little video's related to our products and our blog is a great way to "talk" to our customers and tell them about our new products and generally a place to talk about all things Scandi.
