Our Christmas Shopping Evening kicks things off for the Festive Season

With our Christmas shopping evening on the 18th October there's a buzz about the Parlour. And although for some it seems a little earlier we realise that the weeks in the run up to Christmas often get very busy for everyone, so getting a little ahead is no bad thing. Also, what is often needed is inspiration and ideas so it's a great chance to have a little mooch around the place with a glass of something in hand.

Christmas preparations, is it ever to early?

Does the idea of Christmas at this time of year fill you with delight or dread?  Here in the Parlour we have been busy making plans and hope that we can help make your Yuletide fun and festive. There are lots of lovely things making their way here but if you would like to make something unique then why not join us in a class this Autumn? We have secured a couple of class dates with Joanna Coupland, the rather fabulous paper sculptor.  So if you fancy making your own Christmas lights or decoration then take a look under our...
