CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS

Thank you once again for the best Christmas run-up ever – it has been incredible. We never expected that we would overtake last year’s figures, but all records were smashed! Once again, our “world record” for number of parcels sent in one day has been broken several times, which is amazing. Thank you everyone for helping us to achieve that!

SWAROVSKI SNOWMAN

Another of our best sellers this year is the original Swarovski Silver Crystal Snowman (250229) which originally belonged to then “When we were young” collection, but on the reorganisation of the family groupings became part of “The Cheerful Times” group. Designed by Edith Mair and available from 2000 to 2009, the snowman has a clear crystal body, frosted face, scarf and hat, with black crystal buttons, his nose is orange. He also came with a vial of small clear crystal stones.

RECOMMENDED LAST POSTING DATES 2020

Time for another reminder about the recommended last posting dates – although we cannot stress highly enough that it is best to order early. There are problems in Sorting Offices all around UK due to high volumes of parcel post, staff shortages and of course, social distancing measures which mean that some parcels are being severely delayed.

SWAROVSKI MAXI FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

Just off to its new home – the gorgeous Swarovski maxi flower arrangement (252976). This was part of the “Secret Garden” group, and comprises 3 faceted clear crystal flowers on a clear crystal base. The middle of each flower is filled with small light yellow crystals. A Michael Stamey design, the flower arrangement was introduced in 2000 and retired in 2008. It is 6 ½” wide (163mm).

SWAROVSKI OWL ORNAMENT

Another of this year’s best sellers is the cute Owl ornament (5135848). Swarovski describe him as a symbol of wisdom, this playful owl in a combination of clear, black, and golden crystal will add sparkle to any room. The design comes on a white satin ribbon. Designed by Verena Castelein, the owl ornament was only available between 2015 and 2016.

SWAROVSKI SANTA'S HELPER

Here’s another cute Swarovski festive piece. Santa’s helper (5286532) was designed by Viktoria Holzknecht, and was available between 2017 and 2018. Santa’s Helper is depicted in sparkling red, green, clear and black crystal. We could certainly do with a few Santa’s Helpers around here at the moment!!

SWAROVSKI CHRISTMAS STAG

Another of our best sellers this year is the Christmas stag (1133076). A sophisticated and contemporary interpretation of a traditional Christmas symbol. Shining in clear crystal, this magnificent retired Swarovski crystal stag features white lacquered metal horns and a necklace decorated with Crystal Moonlight. Designed by Stefanie Nederegger, the stag was introduced in 2012 and retired in 2013.
