Hello and welcome to our Blog. Despite it being June, the weather doesn't appear to realise and so we are adding our own touch of Summer with these beautiful new wrapping papers from Milkwood. This seems a natural extension of their greeting card collection and we have chosen these nine floral designs. They are printed on pearlised paper and come, folded, complete with a matching gift tag. We hope you agree that they will make any gift that bit more special and all for only £1.30 per sheet.
Along with the giftwrap, we also have many new card designs in stock, still excellent value at £1.20.
In the past month we have sold two of Suzanne Kirk's handmade Eildon Bears: Brombeere (left) and Thorbernus (right), although I always think of him as Cuthbert! We are glad they have gone to new homes.
So we asked Suzanne to bring some more friends into the shop and are happy to announce the arrival of these three: each one unique and with very different personalities.
Art has silk "fur", wears a wooden heart pendant and costs £40. Kirsche (cherry) is made of dark-tipped pink mohair and wears a metal heart pendant and chain. She is £57. Berowalt is a miniature bear in herringbone tweed and costs £25. They are eager to meet you! Remember, you can enlarge any of the images by clicking on them.
In a week's time it will be Father's Day. Whilst we don't aim to cater for specific events of this type, we do have a variety of gift items that could be very happily received, depending on the Dad in question. It doesn't have to be socks or a tie!
Some might well love one of our new bears; for others we have cufflinks or key rings. How about a glass paperweight? We have three sizes, in either clear glass or black and white swirls, priced from only £3.50, which would make both a decorative and useful addition to a home office or study. Speaking of which, how about these decorative obelisks or even a table lamp or wall picture? They could all be the gift with a difference.
The latest addition to the ever popular WoodWick candle range is 'Trilogy'. Each jar offers three distinct but complementary fragrances as the flame burns lower. There are twelve different combinations, they burn for up to 100 hours and, of course, they all have the gently crackling wooden wick. At £12.95 we believe you won't find them cheaper locally. We still have their single fragrance candles too as well as a giftset trio, containing a mini candle, small reed diffuser and a car scent sachet at £18.95. All of them ideal for adding a little colour and fragrance to Summer.
We look forward to seeing you!
