Hello and welcome to our Blog. Mid-July brings with it the Home & Gift trade fair in Harrogate. If the weather is fine, it's enjoyable to wander around the venues in the town centre, spread between the conference centre and several large hotels, to see what the autumn/winter season has to offer (I know, some of you haven't had a summer holiday yet!).
In last month's newsletter you may remember the three new Eildon Bears that had arrived. Well, 'Berowalt', the miniature tweed bear, sold very quickly and has now been replaced with 'Chartreuse' above. The name is taken from the yellow-green mohair fur and continues the theme begun with 'Kirsche'. You will also notice a new owl design. Made from Jane Churchill materials, this cute character has a lot of hand sewn detailing and costs £15.
As I'm sure you know by now, we love all things candle-related and I thought I'd draw your attention to these tea-light holders. The individual crystal holders can be used in so many places where gentle candlelight is wanted and at only £4.95 each they are excellent value. The triple holder (£19.95) has diamond-shaped crystals held suspended between partially mirrored glass panels which makes a very attractive effect. Ideal for use on the dining table where the low level flame won't hinder across-table conversation. Candles/candlesticks, hurricane lanterns, vases and other home decor objects make excellent gifts for any and all occasions but especially perhaps if you have any summer weddings coming up.
We'll be looking out for all sorts of new things in Harrogate and we look forward to seeing you too on your next visit to Present Perfect.
