Our delightful Canal-side Shop and Ticket Office continues to support local artisans and stock a wide range of gifts, trinkets and souvenirs.
We have canal art painted watering cans, pots, jars, mirrors, spoons, mugs and each piece is unique. Liz Tatam continues to supply her home fired pottery from Ambergate. You can pick up, or order, coasters, jugs, bowls and other items depending on availability.
We also stock more unusual gifts like the Russian made stacking dolls, magnets and toys.
Recently Sue Prince painted a wall size folk painting of Birdswood being horse drawn. Its special to us as the crew and master in the image are the actual volunteers involved. Infact, the master and his wife, in the bow doors, actually purchased the original!
There developed the idea to produce them as cards for everyone to have.
We now stock these at just £2.50 each with all profits credited to Birdswood income.
They can be purchased from the shop, boat or the online shop on our website. https://www.birdswood.org/product/birdswood-card-by-sue-prince/
This year we have also revamped our Christmas card offerings.
We now have packs of 10 of the same print or mixed packs with 2 of each design included. These are just £3 each and have a message inside with a pretty holly. These will soon be available on the website and in the Canal Shop, please follow us on Facebook for further announcements.
