Wow it’s May already! May is one of our favourite months, with birthdays and Bank Holidays galore. We have started the month with a shop redesign, rearranging it to make more space to play in RAAR at the front, and opening up a larger area for St. Ives Pottery at the back. We have just had our kiln arrive; anyone near might have heard the (slightly hysterical) happy laughter. Soon, as well as pottery lessons for everyone, Angela will also be creating some lovely things which will be available in store (Monster and sea themes included).
May also has a lot going on around St. Ives, from our quaint May Day celebrations on the first Bank Holiday Monday, followed by St. Ives Food Festival happening on the 10th, 11th, 12th and another Bank Holiday at the end of the month! So lots of time to enjoy the beaches and a great atmosphere/food on Porthminster! Also on Saturday 11th, our personal favorite, there will be fireworks on the beach!!!!!! Entrance to the food festival this year is free, except for some rather good music at night time which is ticketed just for the stage area. It’s been great seeing the festival grow over the years and it attracts a good mix of locals and visitors who all happily enjoy our favorite beach.
It’s also someone’s birthday… so we will be closed during the first week.
We have some amazing new stock in store, from Ocean Bingo to Marvel Alpha Blocks alphabet book, and a Jon Burgerman colouring book in between. There is lots to keep you busy and #MakeLifeMoreAwesome. We also have lots of beautiful new jigsaws with some great 500-piece ones. Angela’s current favorite is the new Bluebird’s Matching Game with beautiful illustrations.
