Supporting Independents - Shopping not Politics!

Independent Retailer Month poster

July is the time when we're all encouraged to support our local independent businesses and across the Borders there are lots of distinctive retailers committed to offering something that little bit different. Here at Present Perfect we certainly appreciate the support we receive from our regular customers and we strive always to provide you with quality and value.

We will have a variety of offers dotted through the month. So whenever you can, please shop local - shop independent!

We are also looking forward to our annual H&G visit to source great new stock for the coming season - and it's always nice to spend a day or two in Harrogate! Can't wait to tell you about what we see and buy!

These two charmingly serene characters are Lunas, handcrafted from stoneware clay by Sheena Spacey in her Somerset studio. Their name derives from their moon-shaped faces. The larger figure is Moon Luna (15cm tall, £35) and the other, Nana Luna (12.5cm, £30). Each piece is unique with its own beautifully gentle personality.

'Jack' also arrived recently. He is the third piece we have received from Ros Oliver of DoodleCrafts. She makes each one beautifully and imparts a sense of fun in their character. Jack is made in crushed faux suede with a complementary folk-style material for paw pads and ears. He looks rather dapper in his waistcoat and bow tie!

Here are a few items that are newly listed in our online shop. Pieces are being added regularly, so do please keep popping back to take a look!

If you're taking a holiday this month we hope you have a great time! We send best wishes to our American cousins for their Independence Day weekend. And do please remember to keep Independent Retailers and your other local businesses in mind throughout July! We look forward to seeing you.
