Recently, our vast boxed myriad of Julie Dodsworth brand gift ware arrived. I've hand-picked some highlights from the collection to share with you in this exciting update.
Over the past year, Julie Dodsworth has become a formidable art machine. Her designs can now be found on just about every domestic mainstay that isn't a cat. Having examined a view of the products with Liz and Iain, I then decided to arrange some on the temporary gift ware display table by the door (I say table, I mean various stacked planks). All of the products we have received are from a variety of Julie's series, including the Chocolate Box and Calamity Jane series.
I ought to explain the contents of this display really (clockwise from left): coasters (with text), fragrance diffuser, milk jug, mug, teapot, place mats, cards and... Well, more coasters. But without text.
One of the things that is so great about Julie's giftware range is that, despite the production of many items in a range of designs, it retains a homely and non-commercial feel. The same personal relationship that Julie conjures in her printwork and the other work we have for sale is replicated in her homeware. I must say, I'm quite a fan of tea and I would happily sport a Julie Dodsworth teapot, mugs, milk jug and coasters. Were I to desire to mix and match the series I could do, but for purposes of consistency I'm quite sure that we have at least a couple of boxes of each main item in each series. But even so- don't delay!
When the John Kaye exhibition opens to the public on Saturday the 23rd March, so will the Julie Dodsworth Giftware Section, located by the stairs in the corner (please don't climb the stairs... *insert forebodings*). Just to clarify, this isn't the entire section... Those of you who visit us in the meantime will see that we have many... Many... Many boxes of Dodsworth Giftware, all shapes, colours and sizes... And of course prices, but its important to note that every item in the gift range is sensibly and affordably priced.
We have most of these items in fair quantities, but that is not to say we have an endless supply! Jump in when it opens and grab what you can (so long as you pay for it)!
I shall write with more details soon... Get excited, chaps! (And chappettes)!
