Assistant Update

It’s been some time since I introduced you to my new assistant Ziggy the lurcher, so I think a progress report is due.

Ziggy is nearly three years old now and comes to the Malthouse with me occasionally, where she has learned who keeps the doggy biscuits and where the jar is! It is fair to say that she probably enjoys her long walks more than being in the Malthouse as the picture above shows.

She has developed into a wonderful companion and constantly amuses us with her zest for life. Ziggy is also a regular visitor to the picture framing workshop. Her challenge there is to try to sneak off with bits of wood without me noticing.

She will be very pleased to meet you when you come to our shop in the Malthouse if she is helping out that day.

Summer nearly here?

Have the cold weather spells ended? Hope the current spell of sunny days continues.

The birds have started to sing again, and Ziggy the lurcher and I are enjoying listening to them during our early morning walks. The picture above was taken during one of our walks on a very misty morning looking over the Hythe Imperial Golf Course towards the sea.

This is a good time of year to start thinking about framing of pictures and souvenirs. Pop in some time and have a look at the new range of mouldings that we have added to our range – they just might suit your project.

Christmas 2106

Although we will always do our best to help out with urgent jobs, deliveries of our supplies become a bit more erratic during December. Our shop in the Malthouse will be closed on 23rd, 24th, 30th and 31st December 2016, so the cut off date this year for Christmas deliveries is 3rd December.

We wish you all a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

New Assistant

Earlier this year we met Ziggy a young lurcher for the first time and were thrilled when she chose us for her new home. She is about 22 months old now and has had a busy summer training us to understand her requirements. Along the way we have had lots of fun and she has met loads of new friends. Needless to say, long walks have become almost the best part of the day for her.

Now Ziggy is a little older she has been ‘helping’ me occasionally in the Malthouse. Come along and meet her sometime and she will be very very pleased to see you!

Change in the Weather

For most of us it is a relief to be experiencing some cooler weather, but we should not forget that some folks are still on holiday and will be hoping for some sunshine at least.

With autumn approaching,  it’s a good time to remember that we offer all new customers a 10% discount on their first order for picture framing. So come along to the Malthouse in Hythe on a Friday or Saturday with your pictures and we will happily provide you with free advice and a free quotation.

Look forward to seeing you.
