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.
With the second lockdown now imminent and non essential retail closing, we wanted to let you know that a limited pre-booked photocopying and printing service will still be available from SerenArts Gallery.
We appreciate that you may have important personal or business documents that still need to be printed and although our gallery will have to be closed, in line with the Government directive, you will still be able to access this service by contacting us: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: 07581 021135
Our work with local artists and businesses will also continue, albeit in a different format. By contacting us using the details above we can still produce your Christmas cards, calendars and other printing projects and arrange for collection / delivery appointments during this very difficult time.
We would like to wish everyone well during the coming weeks and hope you all stay safe and well.
We have just taken delivery of an exciting new range of cufflinks which include various designs for trades, sports and recreational activities. At just £19.95 per set they come boxed and ready to give a special gift to your loved ones.
