The clock struck midnight and you told yourself ‘new year, new me’ right?
Everyone loves enthusing about what amazing thing they’re going to do in the new year, be it large or small.
Well we’re here to help you achieve your resolution with our top six picks from Bristol Museums shop this January, because nothing is more satisfying than saying ‘I told you so!’.
I will be a little more:
Not only is this book pleasing to the eye but it’s full of unexpected delights. Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss take us through the year, day by day, sharing what we can experience in our skies, beaches, rivers, fields, forests and back gardens.
Now, arriving ‘fashionably late’ sounds pretty cool but it’s rather annoying for everyone else! This elegant watch is perfect for any occasion with its marble face and stylish mink leather strap; with this on your wrist you can be ‘fashionably’ on time.
Have you ever tried to make something that looks really easy and turns out it really wasn’t? This book is the answer. From lamps and tables to toys and chairs, all items can be constructed using basic tools and everyday items, making designer classics from the everyday. Yay!
Make sure you can tick off your bucket list this year by putting plans to paper. Bristol’s Historic Harbourside Calendar will take you through the year as well as its images taking you through the city centre’s historic re-generation.
It’s important to take time out for yourself and what better way than to do it with a funny book! Laugh at the awkwardness that comes with being British – especially when abroad, with a host of silly situations we can all relate to.
This year search the sales for what you’re looking for before making impulsive buys at full price. Our online sale covers homeware to fashion, books to games. Don’t miss out as once they’re gone, they’re gone!
