Christmas Choirs

On Sunday we were joined by a wonderful choir who sang some Christmas Carols in the Arcade. The glass ceiling and stone floor mean the acoustics of this building are just fantastic and the choir sounded amazing.

It's really starting to feel like Christmas is just around the corner!

'Birdman of Ilkatraz'

A few months after we opened I struck up a conversation about tea towels with a gentleman who had come in to the shop with his wife.  After expressing my love of unusual tea towels (some could call it an unhealthy obsession!) he told me that he was a graphic designer and was experimenting with some designs.

I advised the 'quirkier the better' and if he progressed further with it to bring them in to the shop.  He subsequently vanished and then reappeared last week with these fabulous tea towels which I absolutely LOVE and it seems our customers do too! 

The Birdman also paid me a visit this morning and dropped off a limited edition framed screen print inspired by 1930s 'underground/tube' posters. 

Hope you like it as much as I do!

This is why I adore my job - Helping this person share his amazing talent with lots of people!
