This is it…

Happy Wednesday,

Well, this is it…tomorrow will be my last market, I will be setup at the VG from 730 to about 145. I will closing business for good once the Market is over. Whatever I have left after tomorrow will be going to Noggins at Alderney on Friday. Hope to be able to see a lot of you tomorrow.

I want to thank you all for an awesome 12 years in business, Pat’s Preserves has been a very busy time for me, keeping busy I think is what kept me going all them years, but now it’s time to slow down. As we get older ( no I’m not that old ) you do realise that tomorrow is never promised to anyone and what’s important is to enjoy what we have while we have it.

Over that period I have met so many great people, you know who you are and I am very grateful that our paths crossed. You will not be forgotten and hope to see you all again at one time or another.

I want to thank 2 special woman who without them would not have been possible for me to do what I love which is cooking, my Wife Colleen and Our good friend Amy-Lynn. Love you both

Thank you to all the businesses who have supported me by selling my products and still are today ( until product last ) and in the past. Apologies in advance if I forget 1 or two…

December 12th, 2017

The end is near…10 days to go my friends.

I will be at the VG on Friday from 0730 to 1330, I would not wait until the last market next week to get your goods, all stores have their supply and what I have what I have left. no more cooking so this is it.

I should have enough for your needs for this week for sure, next week I am not so positive so please come see me this Friday.

Don’t forget that next week the last Market is on Thursday the 21st, same hours.

I want to thank all of you for your patronage over the past 12 years, it has been an honor to be part of your Thanks giving dinner, Christmas dinner, Easter and part of your everyday for a lot of you. I truly enjoyed meeting all of you, made friends with all of you, made great lifetime relationship with many and it was fun, but all fun must come to an end and as far as the cooking goes…it has come to an end. I hope to see you all around at some market or another at some point or have coffee 🙂

Thank you
