Everyone who exhibited at or visited the Royal Cornwall Show at the Wadebridge Showground over the show weekend will agree that the weather gods were against us, but despite that, Huers Clothing Co’s second appearance was a really positive one.
We launched our family business at the Show in 2016 and the overwhelming highlight for us this year was the number of faces we recognised from last year. We had customers who came to the show specifically to see us, who visited our stand and told us that they had bought garments from us, either at the Show in 2016, the Winter Fair, or through our online shop – and loved them. These lovely people had made the effort to battle through the wind and rain to tell us how pleased they were with their Huers gear.
It’s something that we can’t really get across via social media or our web shop, but people were telling us that they had washed and worn their Huers t shirts & hoodies repeatedly, and after each wash they were as good as new. It is so great to hear our customers telling us something we already know, it gives us even more confidence that our garments are of the highest quality. Some people even turned up wearing Huers, and perhaps even more pleasingly, they bought more items from us!
We launched several new additions to our range at the Royal Cornwall Show – our Ria Mylor Tor jumper (named by our followers on Instagram & Facebook) with our small Padstow PW fishing boat registration on the lapel was such a success that we actually sold out! Our new Camel Trail A.C. silk screen design was very popular too, both on t shirts and hoodies.
All our newest garments are available to buy from our online store – no wind or heavy rain on there!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the Show organisers, the other exhibitors who we made friends with over the three days, but most importantly, all our dedicated customers. As a small, part-time family business that is barely a year old, we are thrilled at the feedback we are getting and the interaction we have with you. It is your enthusiasm and the shared love of simple, quality casual wear that encompasses all that is Cornwall that reminds us why we are doing this!
