The best things...

April greetings!

The best things come in small packages, so mother elf says.  She’s only 82cm.  She had a word with the warehouse elves to come up with little delights for you all.  Here’s what they found.


These delightful glass vases are all different shapes but the one thing they have in common is that they’re all little.  The tallest is only 14cm.

Although these bottles are not exactly small at 23cm tall, the elves thought they would complement the dinky vases.

With the Easter school holidays starting next week you will have to find things to entertain your little elves.  Now, with a bank holiday fast approaching, we all know what that means; rain.  So; to occupy those wet days, and keep them busy at the same time, try one of these six different animal scraperfoils.  Perfect to while those wet, and you know it will be, hours away.

Little boxes stacked in Quality Street.  Not made from ticky-tacky but made from wood.  These great creates measure 36cm square and are 16 cm high.  They come complete with a lid too.  Look what one of our star volunteers made with three of them.

Our fill-a-box for £3.50 is going really well and we only now have a few A4 boxes left for you to cram.  So if you‘ve been thinking about filling a box, don’t put it off.

The next item isn’t small.  You’ve been asking for it, now we’ve got it.  Always popular - Cardboard!  The shop crate’s full and there’s masses in our warehouse too.
