Rain or Shine

During August we have a selection of paintings by Guy Funnell in our windows. He is a local artist based in Seaford. His landscapes are of the Sussex countryside, the blowsy downs, the dramatic coastline, the secret ponds and hedgerow all are featured in this group of painting. It is a departure for us to show painting. I wanted to start with work that portrays familiar locations that we all love and have happy memories of. Guy’s style captures the mood of Sussex, he paints in situ… the rolling hills, dappled light on foliage and water, the moving clouds and the ever changing sea. We have already had a good reaction to his work and sold one of his paintings, they are not expensive when you think that you can own a slice of the beautiful countryside and look at it every day….rain or shine!!
Prices start £90.00

We also have new jewellery by Lidia and Paul at Zinc White. A fantastic way to use coloured pencils. Cut into sections and made into necklaces, brooches, earrings and rings. The mix of colours mean that there is something for everyone’s palette. The shapes are modern and easy to wear , there is something that seems to draw our customers to this work perhaps a reminder of childhood ?
prices start £9.95

With the changeable weather scarves have been an essential this summer and Margo Selby’s new colour ways have been selling well. The medium size is always the most popular but the small is great for tucking into a sweater as you brave the promenade.
Prices start £51.95

A new cushion always brings a sofa back to life and our Lush cushions do just that. The Wild Boar print is fun and the colour way means its easy to mix with other things. This print can also be found on a tea towel, apron mug and lampshade.
Price £29.95
