Season of Mist and Mellow Fruitfulness (and Mince Pies)
The trees are displaying their full autumn splendour before they shed their leaves. Conkers are all but gone. The slow cookers come out of hiding ready to produce warming stews. Yep, it’s THAT time of year.
No Tricks, Just Treats
It’s half-term almost everywhere this week. What do you have planned? Days out? A last-minute break in the sun? Or you could simply take advantage of the quieter roads. Whatever you’re up to this October, enjoy. However, do NOT forget what happens straight after half term…
Yes, that’s right. Christmas. Christmas happens, like IMMEDIATELY, within five minutes of the kids going back. Bang, whoosh, it’s Christmas. Ok, maybe we exaggerate a little, but you watch. Come Monday, all the Halloween stuff will disappear overnight, and the shops will be in full-on festive mode. Wherever you live, there’s always an over-eager neighbour or two whose Christmas tree goes up on the 1st of November. I’m not even joking. All that notwithstanding, seriously, time flies. Start shopping now! As ever, pull up a chair, grab a G&T – ach, blow it, a mulled wine – and browse away.
Now is the Time for Value for Money
Times are tough at the mo, for everyone. Bills are going stratospheric. The economy is still limping along after the nightmare of 2020. Life isn’t much of a picnic right now. It’d be easy for us to say, oh, you only live once, treat yourself etc. But we’re all finding things harder, and we’re all watching the pennies (and the smart meters) just now. All we can do at MyExquisite is carry on offering superb value matched by a personal service.
We understand that not everyone’s buying just now, but we do believe that things WILL get better. If we CAN help you find some lovely gifts, then we’ll do our best to do so. As you know, our bags are truly luxurious and every bit as exceptional in quality as designer labels. All we’re missing is the designer price tags.
Bags of Beautiful Bags
Our new-in bags are really feeling the love. Everyone’s going mad for Luna and it’s easy to see why, she’s so lush! Pretty but classy, roomy enough for essentials but small enough for a night out, and versatile, too. She’s FLYING off our shelves, so act fast if you need a Luna in your life. And, word to the wise, you do!
Equally popular is our eternal best seller Camilla’s big sister, Carina. Carina’s a proper grown up – all practical and useful – but still one of the cool kids. Practical with a crossbody strap and ample storage, Carina also comes in as many colours as her little sis, so there’s something for everyone.
Then, for a more classic look with bags – pardon the pun – of timeless elegance, we have the Lapella collection. These are soft, sumptuous leather, reminiscent of vintage Mulberry, Enny, or Bridge bags. From tote to satchel, grab bag to shoulder bag, every single one is quite literally exquisite.
No Splurge, Just a Steal
Whilst we believe our bags are the stars of the show, our guest stars and supporting acts are also perfect for gifting. Needless to say, they also represent similar superb quality and unrivalled value for money:
- Take a look; we’ve some special prices on our candles and diffuses – and let’s face it, everybody loves candles and diffusers.
- Our sterling silver jewellery is beautiful – but at prices you’re unlikely to find elsewhere. These are gifts which will look like you’ve spent a fortune. Shhh, your secret’s safe with us…
- A purse or a wallet makes a great gift for anyone – it looks nice and it’s useful. Win/win. And, as you’d expect from us, these are brilliant – good quality, great value, and a comprehensive range.
That’s just a little taster. To see the full range and make headway on your Christmas shopping check the website. Just don’t forget the comfy chair and stiff drink!
Please Support Small Business
Even if you’re not in a position to shop, please continue to support small businesses. Of course, we want your custom, but it’s more than that. Honestly, it’s not just a cliché or a soundbite: a reaction, a comment and a share on social media can make a big difference. A positive websor facebook review means the world. Recommend us to a friend. It really DOES help. Thank you.
All that said, we do still empathise with everyone who’s struggling or for whom business is hard and times uncertain. We get it. I get it. I do. But, keep going.
“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
“The darkest hour is just before the dawn.”
If it really IS all getting too much, please talk to someone. Anyone. There is ALWAYS help, and you matter. I promise.
