Busy Festive Period

At Wheathills we've just had time to draw breath after the hectic Christmas schedule. With Wheathills Marquetry Boxes and Promise Boxes flying the length and breadth of the country, and as far afield as America and Australia it was certainly all hands to the pump to ensure everything arrived on time. The boss, Nigel, was still out delivering on Christmas Eve.

The Promise Boxes, an entirely new concept, appeared to be very well received; basically the Promise Box is a small, handmade wooden box with marquetry work on the outer lid(including initials of the person for whom the box is for, and a marquetry image of one of their loves or passions), and inside is the actual(handmade) key of the Memory Box that will arrive at a later date. The cost of the Promise Box is deducted from the final price of the Memory Box.

We're getting back into the swing of things at Wheathills after the Christmas Break, we have quite a few beautiful antique items in for restoration and also a full schedule of Wheathills Keepsake Boxes to complete.
