More lovely, lovely new things from our mega-stock up!!

The last two blogs have only scratched the surface of what we actually have in-SHOP.

We've literally NEVER had this much stock!  How do we know?  Because we've run out of coat-hangers!

Lovely top with a lovely front...
And an even lovlier back!
Mohair, Mo-problems!
It's Don Quijote!

NEW STOCK for Monday!

SHOP was well and truly over-run with new stock last week, so much so that we couldn't fit it all into one blog, so this is the first of two new stock blogs this week!

We have loads and loads of new women's and men's clothing as well as some new additions to homeware.

Have a little look at some examples below!

In a departure from the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter’s usual celebration of all things Christmas (due to our fantastically festive name), The Steps will be hosting an Easter Artisan Market on Easter Saturday, the 7th April, from 11am – 4pm.

To well and truly banish all thoughts of Christmas in the lovely spring season, there will be a fun Easter egg hunt for all visitors to the market to get involved in.  Easter eggs will be hidden on the Artisan’s stalls waiting to be discovered and then scoffed!

But of course, the main attraction as always will be the Artisans themselves and their amazing wares cascading down the historic Christmas Steps.  Expect: local produce, handmade jewellery, original artwork, cross-stitching and home-wares amongst many, many other lovely things.

There will also be: lots of bunting, buskers, great atmosphere, and a unique and beautiful site in a city centre location with many sympathetic traders and businesses in the vicinity, as well as great places to eat and drink. The markets are organised entirely voluntarily and as well as being a quality showcase for Artisans in the heart of an independent arts-led shopping area - it is a real community event.

So – remember, don’t head to the high-street for Easter treats, support your local independent makers!

When was the last time you took a walk down a different street?  The Christmas Steps Arts Quarter consists of eight unique streets in Bristol's old city, lined with independent shops, art galleries, bars, cafes and more than a few surprises, where artisans and creative traders work side by side to keep this diverse corner of Bristol as unusual as it's been throughout its long and intriguing history.
