Yes. This thread is pretty much a gossip column. If you want more information over the Vildhjarta stuff see their FB page/ our FB page. I think we can all just agree that nobody's still quite sure of what to make of our workshop right now
I think a line can probably be drawn under this little chat fest now.
I never said anything about you not innovating, just thought the strandberg example was a little odd.
You don't nee to justify your business to me, if you look through the threads I've said several times I totally understand the business model and think you approach the perfect price point in the market. I also think you should promote that price point like hell.
I've got to be honest, if you aesthetic were a little more to my liking, I'd be tempted to order something based solely on your price point, the fact that your a small British business also makes me want to support you. You may even remember asking if we could modify the aesthetic at one stage.
Still, I wouldn't try and stop the gossip personally, just rise above it, if you're products and service are as good as you say it'll speak for itself, it very early to be judging or defending from either party I think.
Just my 2 pence.
