Seasons Greetings from The Emporium!

Our first year running The Emporium has been a real learning curve! Funded by the Princes Trust, with the aim of bringing hand-made crafts into more of our homes (and more unique gift ideas than the norm), we've had great fun finding new crafts and making new friends who make truly amazing gift ideas!

We want to say a really big 'Thank You' to you - our first year of customers and newsletter subscribers. Without you we wouldn't be here! As a treat, we've activated a discount code on the website "
NEWSXMAS10" for 10% off all items in your next order. Simply type in NEWSXMAS10 in the voucher code box when you check out.

In addition, we are offering free shipping to all orders over £25 this Christmas - handy when you see our next new items exclusive to the Emporium!

Our handmade candles have been a huge success - LeeAnna, our candles crafter, has been working very hard to make some more exciting scents and ideas, and has really made us proud! Take a look at our life-sized centrepiece candles!

From the vanillary crust to the sweet scented fruits, these candles are truly a work of art! Each of the larger pies are 5" round by 2" deep - making them a fantastic centrepiece for your table, a truly unique gift or a really amazing piece for the home! They smell just as good as they look, too, and will burn for up to 140 hours! If you can't bring yourself to burn them, don't worry - their scent will still lightly fill any room, just like a freshly-baked pie!

These unique, handmade pie candles are exclusive to t
he Emporium - you won't find them anywhere else in the UK!

We only have limited numbers of the larger pies for Christmas - so be quick! We can also do custom orders for the pies, making them exactly to your design and requirements for an event or just a special gift. Go to our Custom Orders page for more details.

Why not stock up on stocking fillers at The Emporium? We have a great range of smaller gift ideas suitable for kids right up to Nan - with luxury handmade soaps made will all-natural ingredients, our very popular Sock Cupcakes and plenty of affordable pieces of handmade jewellery.

Finally - did you know we can gift-wrap all presents for you? For just £2 per item, we will wrap any gift, along with a ribbon and a hand-written tag!

We will also label the gift with a little removable tag- just in case you forget what is in there! (Just remember to take it off before you give the gift!)

Last order dates for Christmas are the 17th of December for Standard 1st Class Shipping and the 21st December for Special Delivery! Many thanks for reading our newsletter, and we hope you'll be back to our site again soon for more unique, handmade gift ideas.
