    19th January 2016 6 years ago today, I took the plunge and officially launched my own business with a 6 week old baby - leaving my profession as an interior designer behind. In that time my little girl has grown up, started school, she is now in Primary 2 and my wee business has won awards for the things I make and the service I give - something I never believed I would ever achieve. I've really enjoyed building not just a business but a nationally recognised brand, I'm not always the brightest button in the box and there have been lots of things I've found very challenging (my website when it has 'technical issues' being one of them!) but here's hoping the next 6 years leads to even bigger things! Thank you so much to all my customers and sponsored riders (past and present) who have contributed to making Silverburn Browbands the fabulous business that it is! Rosie

    Christmas Gift Page Information Posted on 11 June 2016

    6th January 2016 Well it's incredibly wet and soggy up in Aberdeenshire, with a very large percentage of the Shire under floodwater, the heavy rain and gale force winds have been relentless and we are forecast more storms. The schools went back today so that is Silverburn Browbands fully back to work after the festive break (of a sort) I'm gradually returning phone calls and getting through web queries so if you are still waiting for me to get back to you regarding your order enquiry to submit your invoice, I will have everything done by the end of the day. Weather permitting, my partner is flying home from offshore today so I will finally get to open all my Christmas gifts and our little girl can open the Santa presents she left so she could open them with her daddy! It's a late Christmas here! On that note the Christmas page on the website will be taken off shortly so if there is anything left on there that you would like to order, now is your chance as the Christmas page will be offline come the end of the week.
