Rudolf Red Nose Discount


Hello you lovely lot! Hope you’re getting suitably excited for Xmas! In the spirit of giving, we’re offering our customers a pre-January Sales Sale until Xmas Day! If you pop down to the boutique, you will see a plethora of little red noses in the cabinets, all indicating that the piece of jewellery they are next to has a jolly 20% discount on the sticker price.

To take advantage of this awesome offer, all you have to do is buy the piece before we close at 3pm on the 24th :) For those of you who can’t make it into the boutique before Xmas, we can also post out pieces with Royal Mail Special Delivery until the 23rd, taking payment over the phone.

Have a nosey at the pieces in our sale (more still in the boutique), and see if the one you’ve had your eye on is marked with a happy Rudolf Red Nose!

A brew for 2014


So our blog has been fairly pitiful to date, with various bursts of enthusiasm evident, but with gaping months in-between. As preparations for our online shop finally get underway (due to launch early 2014) we have decided to once and for all give this blogging malarky a proper go.

There are so many beautiful reads out there, with so many everyday people offering up their daily lives, and what’s more – it’s fascinating! We’re not claiming to soon unveil a shocking and action-packed life here at Black Box (as that would be a revelation even to us!). What we do  have to offer, however, is a rich pool of wonderful designer products, with even wonderfuller (it’s definitely a word) designers behind them. Our new look blog (if you havent already noticed) is going to be a one-stop shop for news, products, and insights into the daily ticking over of the boutique, so as always: keep those peepers peeled and watch this space!

Hello October

Where does the time go? We swear we were blowing out the candle on our 1st birthday only last week…

Here at Black Box we’re only just beginning to accept that our bikinis wont be making it out of the drawers this year (perhaps a blessing in disguise considering our pasty pins are so white they could blind…). So in light of another blink-and-you’ll-miss-it british summer we’ve decided that we resolutely refuse to succumb to those winter blues, and instead we’re filling your life with COLOUR!

The Curious Designers at Black Box have been busy bees, and oh what lovely things we have in store; from restocks of firm favourites (our Nikki McWilliams biscuit cushions, Wolf&Moon acrylic necklaces, Esmie floral notebooks, Twiggd’s playful wooden jewellery) to gorgeous new designs and designers (Fenella Smiths new mugs, ToDryFor colourful teatowels and mugs to brighten up your day, Culpably Cute’s vintage lace necklaces, Lucie Whitmore’s honourific David Attenborough teatowels), there’s plenty to pique that summery happy feeling in the depths of October :)

Here’s a taster of the boutique this autumn, we look forward to seeing you soon!
