Well… 2020 was certainly a bumpy ride! But we’re still here and ready for the renewed challenges that 2021 will bring. We will hopefully be updating our online shop over the coming weeks as new years stock arrives, so please come back soon to see the new goodies!
We did have a little scare over the festive period when the River decided to get rather full again…
We got away with this one and hope that anyone hit by it this time is now all dried out and safe.
We would like to thank everyone for the tremendous local support they have shown SerenArts and the other units at the Tithebarn Workshops and wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
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.
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.
We have just got in another new range to add to our leather and faux suede glove collection…
These beautiful faux suede gloves are just £14.95 per pair and are available now at SerenArts Gallery. They are made from a cotton polyester mix with a fleece thermal lining for extra warmth. Soft, comfortable and stretchy and featuring a small flower print or coloured button detail and all with touch screen finger flower.
With the weather taking a chilly turn we thought we would bring in our collection of leather and faux suede gloves. With a beautiful selection of colours and styles, why not pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops and pick up a pair? They make a perfect Christmas gift (there… I said it!).
Regular visitors to our Blog may have noticed that we have started to develop the site further to include the facility to purchase various items from our Gallery. We have now started to add a selection of our extensive jewellery range to the website and will continue to add and update this option over the coming months.
As our collection of jewellery is such that it would make it impossible to offer everything online, we now also offer the facility to virtually browse the gallery via FaceTime or similar video calling service. Please contact us any time for more information.
We now have a full range of these excellent scarf pin / brooches in stock at SerenArts Gallery. No more holes in your favourite scarf or top! At just £9.95 each there is a style and colour to suit all.
