Real Cottage industry!

Cottage industry demands for production into the late hours! Luckily in front of our warm range, it enables Gerard to produce, with bitter freezing temperatures outside. After cutting the frozen slate in boiling water, dipping his hands in a bucket of warm water, he finally came into the house to clean & finish off the products. Tomorrow the phone will ring again; no problem, of course we can deliver!
