After what can best be described as an Annus horribilis, we at SerenArts would just like to say a huge thank you and a very Merry Christmas to all of our lovely customers. We have been overwhelmed by the support from the people of this great town and thanks to their continued backing, we are able to look forward to 2021 and what the new year will bring.
We hope you all have a fantastic festive period and are able to see some of your loved ones. We look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
Only three more sleeps and we’re able to reopen our gallery to all you lovely people…
Everything is ready to welcome our customers back and our shelves are stacked with great Christmas pressie ideas. There is a great choice of gifts available from all the units at the Tithebarn Workshops.
A huge thank you to everyone who has continued to support SerenArts Gallery during Lockdown 2:0 and we very much look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
The clever people who have set up this selling space have already got over 7000 members and over 300 stalls selling a range of gifts suitable for Christmas pressies. This not only gives customers a chance to buy locally while many shops have to remain shut, but also supports local small businesses and producers during these very difficult times.
With just over a week to go until the end of ‘Lockdown 2:0’ we thought we would give you a little update on how things are going at SerenArts Gallery.
Like many small businesses, this enforced closure could not have come at a worse time of year, hitting Christmas sales from our gallery very hard. Although we have transferred the bulk of our shop items into our online shop and made Serena’s artwork available on her website, there is no doubt the coming months will be a challenge. I made the mistake of calculating the percentage of annual retail sales that we would expect in November… not a good idea!
However… what these lockdowns have done is galvanise local people into looking nearer to home and supporting local firms in these difficult times. We have noticed a marked increase in ‘Bradfordian’ customers and enquiries, which is great for the local economy (and ours!). Hopefully, when we reopen after this current closure, people won’t have spent all their pennies with Amazon and we will see a lovely last minute rush for pressies!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our existing and new printing customers for their fantastic support during this period. We have had a large number of Christmas printing orders and continue to offer our ‘essential’ photocopying service.
Due to the current Government directive, we are still unable to have our lovely gallery open, so here is an opportunity to purchase a set of 8 of Serena’s unique Glass Art Christmas Cards.
Featuring festive scenes each card is hand painted on a glass microscope slide and mounted on a card measuring approximately 185mm x 75mm. Every card comes cellophane wrapped and with a quality envelope.
The above price includes postage and packing, or local Bradford on Avon delivery.
Hello all… we hope you’re keeping safe and well as the second lockdown gets under way.
We have been busy putting our jewellery, accessories and selected items from our gallery into an online shop…
You can visit our website serenartgallery.com and access the online shop. You will then be able to make your purchases and collect the goods from our gallery at the Tithebarn Workshops. Alternatively, if you live locally, we can always drop your shopping off to you.
We will continue to add as much as we can to our online shop over the coming days, so check back regularly to see what’s new.
We are also able to offer FaceTime shopping, where we can show you around the shop and you can select the items you would like… just contact us for more information.
