Christmas Window

Full range of decorations now in stock - and lots from the ever popular Gisela Graham

Christmas Window

We have received all our Christmas decoration stock and had great fun unpacking it all and doing our window.

We had the help of a work experience girl, Christine from Bellerive School who was with us for two weeks and decorating the window was the final project we did with her.
This was the first time we had taken on a school work experience pupil and we did not know what to expect - however it was an absolute pleasure and she was great fun to work with.
We would highly recommend other businesses to take on work experience pupils.

All best wishes,

A mention in English Garden Magazine!

We are thrilled to have had one of our products featured in the English Garden Magazine. The item featured is the Summer Garden Canvas Tool Belt by Gisela Graham - and here is what they had to say about it.

" Booker's Summer Garden Canvas (100% Cotton) tool belt is obviously one for the ladies with its floral design. It measures 24x60cm, and the belt fits up to about a size 16 waist. I found it comfy to wear and it's handy that you can wash it in the machine. I felt cheery wearing it and the belt has a secure and easy to use clip. It has six pockets in total, including tow for secateurs and one that's ideal for a mobile. the largest pocket has a zip which is a fantastic idea. I would find this an ideal companion if I was a jobbing gardener, as I could store all of my handy gardening bits and my lunch money safely.
For this reason, its my Editor's Choice".

Christmas gifts and decorations

We are preparing for Christmas and have taken in lots of new stock, including signs, frames and other lovely things. These would make wonderful gifts.

Visit our Chirstmas section at Booker Gifts website or call into the shop to see what's new.

And be sure to look back later in the month when the Christmas decorations will be arriving.

Remember we post all over the UK.
