Spring is Near!

Hello and welcome to our Blog. We are back, freshly arrived from the Spring Fair trade show and a little holiday. The temperature is remaining low but at least the last few days have been bright and sunny, so fingers crossed!

Taking a short break after the trade show is handy because it means that when we return, the suppliers have had time to begin despatching our orders and I'm thrilled to say that some of the new stock has arrived this week and more is scheduled for next. Remember, you can always enlarge the images by clicking on them.

One range that we're excited to tell you about is Berkeley Square cosmetics. We have wanted to introduce a toiletries range for some time and this one fits the bill. The iconic 1920s images that are used for the packaging, capture the sense of style and elegance of the fragrances. We have taken three fragrances, in eau de toilette, hand cream, bath and shower cream and toilet soap, priced from only £3.95. There are also lip balms available in Fig & Cherry and Rose Petal.
We have tester sprays to help you choose the right one for you.

Another range that has arrived in good time for Mother's Day is 4D Art's family of felines! These cheery cats are friendly and fun. Ranging from 8cm to 14.5cm in height, they all have names and personalities, are modestly priced (£9.95 to £17.95) and attractively packaged; there are fifteen in the series. Do you know someone who would give them a good home?

Also from 4D Art, and in keeping with the 1920s style, we have a few more of their lady figurines, such as "Elegance" (right). These can add a note of grace and charm to your decor. Of course, we also have figures from 4D's Animal Forms range as well as their musical motifs.
Before we leave the subjects of Art Deco and stylish ladies, we have also just received greetings cards from Little Acorn that include designs celebrating both, plus more cards from Bug Art.

Next week's arrivals include lighting and decorative pieces from one of our favourites, Mindy Brownes. Their table lamps are always impressive; not inexpensive but good value for their quality and style. We will also have a selection of items from Pacific Lifestyle; a group of companies that includes lighting from Aimbry, decorative glassware from Helensgate and household items from Habasco.
And all of this is just for starters! We will have more items arriving over the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Finally, do you have your borderevents discount card yet? It's available FREE, either by completing the form in borderevents magazine or online at . All sorts of businesses across the Borders are accepting the card to give you a variety of offers. Currently, at Present Perfect, you can save 10 per cent on purchases of £25 or more. This offer runs until the end of April. We will change our offer through the year.

We hope that you will have the opportunity to call in and see the new arrivals soon.
