As The Nights Draw In.

Hello and welcome to our second blog newsletter. Last week we received the second half of our order from Parlane. As you may know, Parlane is an interiors lifestyle company with a wide range of beautifully designed products, from jewellery to furniture. We are proud to stock a selection and have around forty different products currently available. It is always exciting to open the big box! (Do remember that you can enlarge the photographs by clicking on them.)

These glass flasks/vases are new in. The 'skittle' flasks, in pearlised glass, have an elegant outline. They are priced £29.95 and £35.95. The two smaller vases have an unusual notched surface where the white upper layer has been cut into, to reveal the lower frosted surface. These are priced £17.85 and £24.45. They will all help provide a bright spot in any interior. Also in the picture are glass plates, from Shudehill. They cost £9.25 (square) and £4.99 (triangular).

These candlesticks are made from mango wood and have a natural, rustic finish. Their height makes them impressive. Priced at £19.95 and £24.95 they offer great value too (candles extra). Also, in the left of the picture are scented candles from Torc. They come in four fragrances, ideal for the festive season and at £4.95 each couldn't be a better buy. The small vase is aubergine sparkling glass from Shudehill, similar to the blue ones mentioned in our previous post. The giraffe is also from Shudehill. It has been so popular that we have sold out twice! More may be coming in.
Of course, we also have many other Parlane items in stock, including crystal tealight holders at £4.95 and glass paperweights at £5.99 and £7.99. There is something to suit all tastes and budgets. How about these metal hearts? Embossed with a flower design, they are suitable to hang as Christmas decorations or all year round; priced £3.95 and £8.75.

We have other Christmas decorations from Parlane, including some rather cute Mooses, seen here on the cover of the Parlane catalogue.

This little cameo of black and red is a sort of Halloween/Christmas mix! You saw 'Brombeere' bear in our first newsletter; he is wearing a very fetching necklace here, handmade by Juli Miller. It is an impressive glass "doughnut" on a black-covered metal cord, at £60. There is also one of Suzanne's owls (£8) as well as our ever popular WoodWick candles and the 'hatbox' of votive candles, all fragranced. The black nickel pillar candlesticks, from Tiger Tiger Home, are £75 for the pair. You will also see cheery snowman and robin Christmas cards (99p each). Our other Christmas cards have also arrived; these are in packs of five from Bugart (£3.45) and Little Acorn (£2.80).

We never keep large quantities of any individual item, so hurry in! We look forward to seeing you.
