Saturday 12th December 2015 marked the Spicery's first ever Christmas Open Day ...but would anyone turn up??? As an online company we don't get a huge amount of contact with the wider world, so gauging the attendance of an open-invitation event such as this felt almost impossible! If only a handful of people arrived then Plan B would be deployed (do normal work), however, if legions of Spicefans came knocking at the door then things could have turned a little more frantic! Thankfully, fate applied Goldilocks' Law with a turn out that was 'just right' (around 200 people!) and a magically festive day was had by all complete with seasonal spiced snacks, our makeshift spice market, Make Your Own Curry Blend stall as well as guided tours of our HQ.  Check out the photos below to see how it all went down in seasonal Spicery town... openday4 Jess and Amy finish decorating a Recipe Kit stall openday9 The seasonal stand with all our Christmas kits openday10 Amy, Josh and Gifty preparing the 'Snowball Lucky Dip Boxes' before the doors opened to the masses openday8openday2 The piece de la resistance - our Tung (pictured) prepares the 'Make Your Own Curry Blend' stall where visitors could get their very own Boxing Day curry blend made freshly to their own specifications ...with Tung and Robyn's help of course! openday7 The spice market all ready for our first guests (also note the Christmas songs projected onto the warehouse wall (top right) to help lay down the Christmas vybz) openday3 Aerial view of the spice market and Make Your Own Curry Blend stall  in full flow openday6 Complimentary homemade Christmas Cake (several weeks in the making!) alongside Turkey & Cranberry spring rolls and spiced apple juice (not pictured!) openday11 Robyn conjures up a fantastic curry blend right before the customer's eyes... openday5 Tour guide duty for Josh with a sizeable group. Thanks to everyone that came along and made the day such a success - it really was a pleasure for us to meet you in 3D! Hope all the gifts go down well and look forward to seeing you again next year.
