After an extremely busy year so far – having worked every day since the turn of the year! – and with a ‘big’ birthday for my wife this week, I’m taking a few days off. The shop will be closed from Wednesday 15th, and will re-open on Tuesday 21st. The website will still take ‘orders’ and enquiries, but they will not be processed until the 21st. Are we going away anywhere nice I hear you ask? Yes – we’re off to beautiful Florence! Hopefully, there will be no queueing for the galleries – as was the case when we last visited in February, 15 years ago. Arrivederci!
