It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Updated: Dec 16, 2019

…and that’s not the only thing I’m celebrating! I have been open for exactly one month today and what an absolute whirlwind of a month it has been – though a thoroughly enjoyable whirlwind!

Starting a new business has had its challenges – figuring out my card machine and making chocolate fast enough to keep the shelves stocked, to name a couple. However, I have been both amazed and grateful for the response that La Chocolatrice has received. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know my customers – I definitely have some regular Chocolate Lovers already, which is fabulous! I enjoy our chats and listening to their stories (a man who came in yesterday was planning on proposing to his girlfriend with my chocolate – I hope she said yes!), and also hearing their ideas for new flavours. I’m even starting to learn everyone’s favourite chocolate, and remember what they usually buy, which is fun.

The chocolate making workshops have also been fantastic. I have enjoyed every single one, and every group has been great. I love to chat and it’s been great getting to know everyone. I am looking forward to releasing a new series of chocolate making workshops in the New Year, including Valentines Chocolate and Easter Egg making classes, so that I can welcome these groups back!

I’m also planning on launching a Chocolate Lovers Society in January (I have so many ideas!). We will meet once a month to enjoy chocolate tasting sessions, chocolate pairings, demonstrations, socials, meditations and more. Whether you come by yourself, or with a friend, this will be a great opportunity to enjoy some delicious chocolate, and meet fellow Chocolate Lovers of Newcastle. I just can’t wait.

For now, I have two days off - I don’t really because I am planning on making a lot of chocolate – but I will also finally be putting my Christmas tree up. The shop will be back open on Wednesday and will open every day until Christmas Eve, when we will be open from 11am – 4pm for any last minute Christmas Shoppers.
