For those who love the classic appeal of blue and white china, look no further than this season’s carefully acquired collection, selling at the National Trust of Guernsey’s Victorian Shop and Parlour at 26 Cornet Street, St. Peter Port. And there’s more …
For keen gardeners, there’s a fresh stock of heritage flower and vegetable seeds; for epicureans, there’s a new selection of locally made chilli sauces, Guernsey fudge, marmalade, teas and jams.
The gong for unique items though, is ringing loudly for Sarah Hall’s ‘Cobo Alice’ and ‘Puffin’ knitting patterns. Sarah Hall is the creator of the Dickensian Mice, which sell out within a few hours of opening our annual Christmas shop. Sarah’s patterns are only available at 26 Cornet Street.
Elizabeth Lihou’s own knitted tea-cosies are clever, characterful and when seen, always bring a warm smile. There’s definitely a tea-cosy on the shelf for someone you know. They’re a work of art and always given in the sure knowledge that you’ll likely ‘never, ever’ see another one of the same. The Trust is very grateful to Elizabeth for her creative thoughts and the hours spent in voluntarily offering her talented craft-work for sale, for the Trust’s benefit.
