Have you begun opening the first windows on your Advent calendar? With any luck chocolate will be accompanying breakfast for the next few weeks - we're never too old for that! As you can see, the shop is all trimmed up. This year we decided to take a natural branch, kindly provided by friends, (they know who they are!) and we are thrilled by the kind comments of those customers who have already seen it. All the decorations are for sale, including cute tin owls and some handmade rectangular glass icicles, each one unique!
Once again, we have these wonderful quality Trapp candles from America. There is "a bottle of perfume in every candle" and they will fill your home with festive fragrance.
These two pieces from Parlane will make a big impact in your decor. The mercury glass 'Majestic' candlestick and the hurricane lamp both have an antique gold colour finish. We also have many other candle related holders in various shapes, colours and sizes.
This selection of glass items is handmade by Barry Cooper. We particularly like the 'Blue Aluminium' dish with its dichroic glass and also have one with green insets. The little heart hanging plaques are fun and we have a few greetings cards that are mounted with a small glass heart square.
This beautifully colourful pashmina is made in Kashmir from 50% wool/silk. We have four variations, any of which could help provide the finishing touch to a winter outfit. Also available online.
If you're hoping to enlist help with the dishes over the party season, make it more fun with one of our festive tea towels! We have this cute snowman family and two other equally colourful designs. At only £3.75 each you could give one to every member of the family!
We are now just a week away from the UK's first Small Business Saturday event. We will have Christmas nibbles on offer and there will be *free gifts (votives, candle tins and reed diffusers) for customers who spend £5, £25 or £50. The day is also supported by American Express and their cardholders can get a credit on their statement if they make a £10 purchase in any participating business! We hope to see you.
* While stocks last.
Finally, please remember that during December we are open 7 days a week until Christmas Eve: Sundays & Mondays 12 noon - 4 p.m. and Tuesdays to Saturdays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. We hope you will enjoy all that the holiday season has to offer.
