What would you like to be if you weren't a ________?

Something people don't know about you.
I’m a pretty open person, so there’s not a lot. Maybe that I’ve been a film extra a couple of times...
How can we find you on the internet?
What do you have coming up that you want us to know about?
We're always thinking ahead, creating new ideas and ultimately producing new products and ranges. This sometimes takes more time than we’d like due to funding but we always endeavour to continue to evolve. Our main focus is to take Watershed to more people. Trade shows, pop up stores and maybe even multiple permeant stores. Watch this space.
