April 2014 Easter

Easter is an important time in the Christian calendar and a time for holiday and celebration of the arrival of spring.   Our window for April is blooming with flowers, a selection of eggs and egg cups and a collection of chickens and bunnies long associated with Easter-time.  

People enjoy giving and receiving chocolate eggs but it is only in the last 100 years or so that Chocolate eggs have been introduced.  Before then people gave carved wooden eggs or eggs made from precious stones.  In the Antiques world the most well known  are the jewelled eggs made by Faberge for the Russian Royal family at the end of the 19th and early 20th Century.   Sadly we do not have a Faberge egg in store but we do have a variety of decorative and novel pieces for those who are seeking something a little different from the ubiquitous sweets and chocs!

We are open all over the Easter weekend, Saturday as usual and then opening at 11am until 5 pm on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and holiday Monday
