Christmas Gift Ideas 2015 #1

Hello again. As I said last time, we will now move into the usual two weekly newsletter with Christmas gift ideas.

There will only be four, taking us up to the middle of December.

The first line of Christmas gift ideas this year are the work of popular local artist Faith Harckham. These are very much a `bucket list` piece that one partner buys for another that has long admired the work. Usually Faith paints powerful and arresting bears, however we do have a different one, in the form of a wolf:-

Last time I mentioned the coat of arms from Graham Howard. His regular unisex range of pullovers, jackets and T shirts are always popular. These are totally Canadian made and the quality means that they just last and last.

Another line that is popular all year, but particularly so at Christmas, is the titanium jewellery of Jean-Yves Nantel.

We have always carried the black and white photography of local legend Bruno Engler, in both print form and original photographs. With the photographs we have decided to actually carry just the best sellers and have people browse the catelogue to custom order. (There are over 25,000 images in the collection) This means that there is a certain amount of stock that we are selling off at 50% off. You can see the list on this special page. Please note that stock is limited it will be a case of first come first served and that the sale only applies to 11×14 inch photographs. Below I have shown three of the pieces in the sale.

A new line this year was Jim`s Metal art. It has proved popular throughout the year and I think it makes a great Christmas gift.
