Tubs Replenished

Pictured is one of the tubs outside our shop. We replenish them each season now that the council does not do it anymore. The rain has done some good and the tubs are really starting to bloom with colourful Geraniums, Marigolds and Tumbling Sweet Peas.

"They were stunning"

Featured gift of the month

One of our most popular gifts this summer are these unusual Strawberry glass jug and tumblers by Gisela Graham. They have a rising bubbles effect in the glass coupled with embossed strawberries, evoking summer afternoons and cool drinks outdoors. They make a great centre piece to the table too.

With a rustic feel, made of thick glass, they differ slightly showing that they are unique hand-made pieces.

The Strawberry Jug is £23 and the Strawberry Tumbler is £6. You can order them online or call into the shop to pick one up. The website links are Strawberry Jug  and Strawberry Tumbler
