Gallery shops, designer gift shops, boutiques

This is a call for suggestions.

Do you know of any designer gift shops that would be perfect as a retailer of the mosaic kits? I’m particularly interested in locating good independents that sell interesting/not in the high street items in advance of Christmas stock purchasing.

Please let me know your ideas…………………..thank you!

There’s more on it’s way…!

Since the latest entry, other new works have been installed but I’m just waiting for some images. There’s the circular Entrance Archway at Marshall’s Arm and the completed Mosaic and Bronze piece at Lymefield Visitor Centre.

The Monkey Business team has also been busy with thermoplastic play markings and we installed a lovely set at a Surestart Children’s centre in Salford last week. This week we’re producing more for two other sites….it’s all GO!
