New light – tin from Thomas Stanley. Thomas is a recent graduate from Northumbria University and has since launched his own design practice, Lightin is his first product available commercially and it retails for £34.95.
Lightin utilises a very minimal CNC bent wire frame, which neatly wraps it’s self around a standard beer can, the recycled beer can encases an LED spotlight bulb that is capable of lasting 50,000 hours if left on constantly, thats 5 years and 7 months or 20 halogen bulbs.
I think it’s cool, although I’m sure Angus would much prefer it with a wine bottle on the end 😉
Also lightin has been designed and manufactured in the UK.

A pic to show the Christmassy window as promised. It’s a collection of logs, polystyrene, kapow lights and some rather nice ply wood shelving that John knocked up a couple of weeks ago. The Orla Kiely ceramics are selling like hot cakes.

Talking of cakes, we’re doing a late night shopping evening tonight but things have been less than busy ( quiet ). I’ve eaten most of the mince pies that were destined for hungry shoppers.

With only 41 days to go until the big day its time for us to put in our christmas window. Look out for a new blog post in the morning.

Above you can see a couple of snaps from last years window! It consisted of stag head hangers (designed&made by us) Mounted onto some unfinished rough cut timber mounts. Each stag head hanger was wearing a white-t with the names of the reindeer printed on in 72pt helvetica. The floor was lots of little polystyrene S’s commonly used for packaging.

NEW month NEW window. This is the last window display we will probably be having before the XMAS window and it’s one I really like. The window is the creative work of Angus, but because I was in the shop late enough last night for it to get dark, I thought I’d take a few snaps for the blog.
Products in the window:
Book rest light – Sang Jin Lee – £40 (featured in previous blog)
I’m as big as… – snowhome – £9.95
Leaf – Orla Kiely – £7.90
Tunhock Teacakes – Gillian Kyle – £7.90
Apple&Pears – Lotta Kuhlhorn – £7.90

Here’s a couple of pictures showing our new window display that promotes the tilting glasses and carafe by Sagaform. The display is part of a competition open to UK Sagaform stockists, first prize is a 4* trip to Stockholm so fingers crossed.

The glasses and carafe have curved bases making them almost impossible to knock over. We will be adding them to our site soon.
