Christmas is coming...

Those of you who know me, will be well aware of my love for anything Christmas related! I just love Christmas.

For those of you who dont know me, I'm that annoying person that starts listening to Christmas music, wears Christmas Jumpers, and watches Christmas Films from November 1st. I absolutely love this time of year and am quite the Christmas geek, much to the annoyance of my colleagues.

So it would be quite fitting that today, Bethany and I have recieved deliveries of lots of beautiful Christmas decorations for the Botanic Garden Gift Shop and the Oriental Museum Gift Shop.

We have all sorts of different Christmas decorations available, ranging from glass leaves, and Gisela Graham Wreaths, to oriental elephants, handmade glass baubles and sequinned stars. Prices range from £1-£30. So make sure you head down to these Visitor Attraction gift shops to get your hands on them while stocks last!


Right... I'm off to watch White Christmas and sit in my snowman jumper.


Sending Christmassy thoughts. Pia x

Amelia's Intern Diary

An overflowing stockroom.

This week is the stocktake.  We count everything in the stockroom and update our stock levels.  Each member of the team is responsible for a different outlet.  Mine is our Official Online Shop, which means I am in the stockroom up at Mountjoy. 

The funny thing about retail is that your best and worst feelings are experienced in the stockroom.  It can fill you with joy when everything is neat, tidy and easily found.  It can also fill you with dread when you’ve had what seems like a million deliveries and there is no room to breathe anymore. 

The great thing about an overflowing stockroom is that you’ve got lots to sell!  All of our new stock (which is not up on our website) is packed up and ready to go.  It is exciting, bringing out new lines and seeing the ideas of the team take shape. 

It is going to be a mammoth task for all of us but I’m sure we can pull through and count every single thing we sell.

If you feel like helping us out, order some items from our Online Shop and help clear some space!
