The Oban Times - - Leisure -

POP­PIES Gar­den Cen­tre was the cen­tre of at­ten­tion last Thurs­day, when an abun­dance of women de­scended on to the es­tab­lish­ment for the an­nual Ladies Night In.

‘It’s nice to give some­thing back. We didn’t start un­til 6.30pm, but at 6.15pm, some­one came in and said the car park was full.’

Mar­ion also had a num­ber of ta­bles set up around the room sell­ing a va­ri­ety of mir­rors, uten­sils, can­dles, soaps and more.

She con­tin­ued: ‘I’ve trav­elled far and wide for my stock. I go to shows all over the place and even go as far as Ger­many.

‘I try to buy Fair­trade items and be as eth­i­cal as I can be and I also use lo­cal prod­ucts when­ever pos­si­ble.’

PRIDE OF PLACE: Mar­ion with a plate of free sam­ples. SPOILED: Guests are spoiled for choice as they take a look at

what was on of­fer.
