OCTOBER WINDOW


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

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

I’m currently busy tidying up my desktop on the mac as it has just got crammed with stuff while I have been preparing for 100% design and now as you can imagine I have lots of people to get back to and I cannot find anything! As I was tidying up I found this image, it’s from last year and it seems a shame just to tidy it away and probably never find it again, so I thought I’d share it.

RARE BIRDS

Some of you may already be aware of the concrete ducks that we began stocking last December.

They proved to be a big seller for us at Christmas. The ducks have been made exclusively for us by a company in Scotland that specialises in semi-industrial concrete installations. Our initial batch of ducks came in various shades of grey but with our new delivery last week are a few rare yellow concrete ones. They are now nicely packed in own brand mini tubes and yellow ducks have been added to the site as an option to buy on a first come first served basis @ £9 each. WARNING – these ducks do not float!

British desined +made and retailing for under £5. I want to see more products like this.

YouToDo


Here are the first pictures of our new product – the YouToDo wallchart.

It follows on the heels of I’m as big as…. the height chart which I designed two years ago and has proven to be a top seller.
YouToDo is a 140cm long wall chart and is very loosely based around a children’s reward chart.
There are 66 tasks to complete and coloured stickers to mark your progress. The tasks are designed to encourage an adventurous spirit, creative thinking and a sense of fun. The YouToDo challenges include building a snowman, baking a cake and watching the sun rise. The tasks are aimed at anyone aged 10 years or older and there is space for up to four people to use each chart. I am currently working on a YouToDo kids chart which will be specifically for children under 10 years old.
the first batch is packed up and on our shelves and the early feedback has been very positive. It looks set to be a perfect summer holiday product.
We will add it to the website later today ( price £11.95 )

WALLSTORE

We were both excited and proud to receive our first delivery of Wallstores from Seletti this week.
The Wallstore was designed by John last year after he started working at Snowhome. Its’s a handy magnetic wall mounted storage solution and is distictively branded with the Pantone colour reference. We took some prototypes down to the 100% Design show last September and there was a very positive reaction .
They are now in full production through Seletti in Italy and come in seven colours ( purple not shown ). I put them up in the window on Friday and they’ve added a nice splash of colour to the shop. We will put them up on the website this week @ £40 + P&P.

ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY?

When we were deciding whether to branch out into soft furnishings, we realised a couple of things; firstly we don’t have a huge floor space and secondly, we wanted to offer a product that represented our design philosophies.

So, we digested the fact that we didn’t offer the square footage of a large retail chain and came to the conclusion that we would focus on a classic piece from the 1960’s and now proudly made in Yorkshire.

The Robin Day club sofa is an iconic design and treasured item to many of its owners. It has solid eco credentials and comes in four sizes and a selection of materials and leathers.

Those with with an eye for detail and proportion will undoubtedly find this timeless classic appealing. If you are in our area why not pop in and have a sit down?

We will soon be offering the club sofa range to order online ( Uk customers only ), please check the website again soon if you are interested.

SALES TARGETS

As a result of some messing around in the shop one ( quiet )day we devised a magnetic darts game. John made little paper flights for some peg magnets that we had and we spent an afternoon chucking them across the shop attempting to land them on our notice board.

As a result of those fun filled hours we devised the Target board.
Basically a magnetic notice board with a target on it. We made some arrows using feather flights, the feathers being donated by prize winning york racing pigeons.
We have just a few left from the first batch that we had commercially made. Get yours before they go. Click here
