NEW lightbox size + Sunday shop hours

A5longlightboxSo we’re pretty excited about these new A5 long lightboxes that arrived last week! All of our do-it-yourself lightboxes have 2 or 3 rows for you to create your own messages and announcements. Change your messages as often as you like by simply sliding the plastic letters on and off the box. Mix and match the enclosed letters and symbols or you can purchase special edition sets to add a bit of flare!

Check all three sizes here: A4 (3 rows small) | A5 (2 rows) | A5 Long (3 rows large)

Also, a friendly reminder that we’ll be open from 1-4pm this Sunday, April 10th. Our silver ring wax carving workshop is taking place that morning. This is the last chance to register, so if you are interested in learning how to design and carve a custom piece of handmade jewellery, this is the class for you. One spot remaining.
