We are very proud to be taking part in the St Ives Christmas Window display competition... Every year all the shops battle it out to win the shield for the best Christmas display and over 50 shops have taken part this year. St Ives is a great place for a spot of Christmas shopping with its eclectic mix of quirky individual shops, you're bound to leave with lots of bags! This year all the long stay car parks are offering all day parking for just £2. It would be rude not to take advantage of this and pay St Ives a visit. Make sure you pop along to our shop on Fore street for some last minute gifts and see our lovely Christmas Window. If you can't make it to St Ives for a spot of Christmas shopping then you won't get to see our beautiful window, but becuase we're nice and don't want you to miss out we thought we'd share it with you! We've got our Christmas tea cosy, hanging stockings and donkey goodies on show and centre stage is a little scene with our nativity egg cosies and an array of badges, amidst delicate doilies! If you'd like to vote for our window then you can do so by either emailing; firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the St Ives in December facebook page and leaving a message or tweeting your vote to @StIvesInDecember and you can find out more info here. We'd love to win the sheild this year, so would appreciate your vote.

We bring you news of a very, very exciting new product and a first for team Treffry. This year we have produced our first ever advent calendar and we must tell you it is simply grrrreat! Working for our lovely friends ooop North, the wonderful Bettys, we produced this fab calendar which lasts. Bring it out each year and fill it with festive Bettys chocolate or alternative little December treats (maybe even fruit??!?!) The calendar was designed by Poppy and then stitched by the team down in Cornwall and then sent up to Bettys where they took it upon themselves to fill each pocket with Swiss milk and white chocolate novelties, just for you. If you'd like one then head over to Bettys and grab one quick - we can tell you we didn't stitch a lot so don't miss out on one of these, the perfect advent treat for children of all ages (ok, yes, we all have one!!)
Poppy Treffry for Bettys - fancie that!
Don't forget you can still shop some of the other lovely products we've created for Bettys. (From the quantity of tea towels and aprons we've had to make we reckon a lot of you have remembered already!)
