Chilli Festival Season is upon us..

I have been waiting for the chilli fests to really get going, Blackpool earlier this month was a superb weekend in the sun, and the North West had been waiting 3 years for one since the Lake District one sadly stopped…

So, with Eastnor Castle this coming Bank Holiday weekend, Sunday’s weather looks good for Ledbury (where the castle is!), and also, Alcester 18th, Solihull 25th, May is going to be a good month!

One thing, I can’t do anything about as a small business, is card payments. Lots of people ask, but if I can direct them to a cashpoint great, but if not, I lose the sale, and the person then has to buy with the postage fee on top. Well, until PayPal Here is available, I have just listed a ‘pick up from store’ option on my website. So, you can either buy in advance of a festival, to save postage, writing the chilli fest you are collecting at (and which day) or on the day in the comments, or use your smartphone and paypal/debit card on the day and collect! Its the only way at present I’m afraid as card machine rental is a bit out of reach at present!

So there you have it, stuck for cash but wish to buy? In advance or on the day, we’ll find a way…

Finally, the last few Maverick Pre Label will be taken to Eastnor this weekend, so if you can’t go, best get one now 😉

Have fun, signing off…THe Reaper
