Oh yes. Having bought a few bits last year and looking for some nice shades for the additions to Sarto Towers I was somewhat flummoxed when looking at the website. The seconds we eventually bought are lovely and although you know the flaws are there (pointed out when we bought) you can't see them (as long as you don't use a stepladder).

We'll be there at opening time - get the mince pies on.

Spent more than budgeted for (just like last year) but very pleased with what we got. Didn't have a mince pie but the mulled wine was bob on!

Most importantly the glass blowing demonstration was excellent and impressive.

Thanks to Mark and all at R&B - Merry Christmas.

I thought it was very old fashioned, dreary 1970s' colours.

Presumably it was meant to show the traditional methods of glassblowing which would be old fashioned. Unfortunately you just cannot please everyone.

It wasn't the glassblowing it was the end product.

Can you advise what colours denote the "1970's" - I must delete them from my palette... (I'll give you Avocado for starters)... ;)
