Ancient Wisdom

Hello ,

Greetings from Slovakia, in the pretty town of Trnava that is home to AWGifts, the EU identity of Ancient Wisdom.

Last week I was telling you about the container delivery problems we have been overcoming here, including the tetris puzzle issue.. You can read about it here.

That container finally arrived, our first from China, this coming week we have another China container and one Indonesian. So we are getting to a healthy stock level where we can offer our customers a great range.

Meanwhile, Tomas, Coco and I made a road trip to Poland, across Slovakia up into the high Tatra mountains and over the border to the alpine town of Nowy Targ in Poland to basically open a bank account.
Our Polish customers prefer to pay directly to the bank, but cross boarder payments are a little expensive so it puts folk off ordering, the solution a bank account in Poland. Easy yes?
No not easy.. We already knew a stack of documents would be needed, translated to Polish and apostialised (legalized), we checked and double checked with the bank before going.. Police record. Check. Companies house docs. Check. Check. Check... Of course we needed lots more so a bit of a mission.

Poland mountain village life is very how can I put this.. Erm old fashioned but in a nice way. Like stepping back in time to a gentle age at a slower pace.
It happened to be the first day back at school and the tradition here is for children to dress up like for a wedding, and it must start after lunch because the town centre was full of teenage James Bonds in dinner jackets with dicky bows, and pretty girls in evenings dress posing and promadarding all morning.
It became a two day job opening an account, with trips to translation offices and notaries thrown in so we got to know the town quite well. An immaculately dressed, polite and dapper bank manager and two young assistants worked diligently to make it happen.
Just as I signed the final papers, and we were handed a login and bank account number, outside in the town square a prom band began to play..
We all smiled it was a good omen.

Meanwhile back in the UK.. At AW it is as far you can get from a gentle age and the pace is full pelt. Next week we switch to double shifts to pick and pack your orders in a more timely fashion. There are six containers due in the next few days and that in itself is a huge job. We are still, I'm afraid, behind with orders but getting back on track.

Christmas is coming..

Thanks for your business and I hope you are keeping well and trading well.

More news next week.
