First-off – happy New Year to all our Emporium customers (and future customers)! We hope you enjoyed the pair of Christmas fairs we ran during December (especially the mulled wine and mince pies). As usual we’re open from 10am until 5pm Monday to Saturday and 1pm to 4pm on bank holidays during 2017. The Emporium’s new payment machine has been a great success and we’re happy to announce that buyers can use their debit cards to purchase items totalling £20 or more.
As you are probably aware the shop is a collective of more than a dozen sellers specialising in everything from glass, ceramics and small antiques to crafts and upcycled furniture. The dictionary definition of ‘emporium’ is: “a store selling a great variety of articles” – never has a truer word been said about our shop.
If you are interested in renting some space within Godstone Emporium at a very reasonable rate, please call 07766 193126 during opening hours.
Here’s a taste of some of the beautiful items that have come into the shop in recent weeks…
Claire is selling this lovely George Jones majolica-style jug which features an unusual bird handle – we think it’s a swift! It has a small defect, and as a result is yours for just £15.
Continuing the wildlife theme, this fantastic owl ornament can be found in Cat’s section (all that’s missing is a pea-green boat!). Delightfully soft, and featuring real feathers on its wings, this chirpy chappy is on sale for £22.50.
Nearby is Sally’s area, which includes a 1950s and ‘60s-themed display. The leaf trolley table is £40, while the 14-piece Alfred Meakin coffee set costs just £30. Alfred Meakin Ltd was set up in 1875 in Tunstall, Staffordshire.
Just £16 will buy you this impressive glass ship in a bottle in Sylvia’s section…
…while this wonderful arch-shaped mirror can be found at the front of the shop (Jacqui, £75). The small cherubs complement it perfectly and cost £10 each.
Finally, take a look at these glass tealight holders. Hand-painted by Gloria Whiting they cost £8 each or £15 for two – great value for original works of art!
