The Seasalt windows underwent a magical woodland transformation this month, inspired by all the beautiful ditsy flower prints in the collection.
Referred to locally as ‘better than Christmas’, Flora Day is an iconic date in the annual Cornish calendar. It celebrates spring, sunshine, new crops and of course there’s the Furry Dance, flowers and all-day-long festivities.
There’s a whole bunch of people at Seasalt who live in the town or were brought up there, but we think Hayley, our Assistant Merchandiser, might just be the most seasoned participant! Here she gives us the low down on why it’s so special for her…
Padstow is packed out for the annual Obby Oss festival to celebrate May Day and the first day of summer!
Two ‘osses’, known as the ‘old’ and the ‘blue ribbon’, take to the streets and the entire town, dressed in white, follows one or the other depending on family loyalties. The ‘osses are huge stylised horse costumes worn by members of the groups and the celebrations start when the blue oss is released from it’s stable at 10am and then the other released at 11am from home.
We have vacancies for friendly, customer focused sales assistanst in our Fowey shop, these are part time posts, to include weekends and holidays. Retail experience is desirable, more importantly a natural drive to help customers, represent the Seasalt brand and work with great clothing and a strong team could secure you the job.
One of our Graphic Designers, Elly, got out and about last weekend with a trip to the depths of West Cornwall on a mission to forage… Here she tells us all about it.
Last Sunday was a very special day in that I decided to make good a new year’s resolution that I’ve been making for the past five years: learn to forage. I hate spending money, and if there is anything free to be had I’m first in the queue and will come round for seconds gladly. Our countryside and coastal areas boast a great deal of edible delights for the (responsible) taking, and as someone who is happiest running around outside, it seemed only right to combine my love of all things natural with my inclination to frugality.
We couldn’t let St. Piran’s Day pass without raising a Cornish pasty. So the entire team at Seasalt HQ, and all the shops all over the South West, took a pasty in hand to raise a toast to our patron saint. Here’s a few pictures of some of our pasty connoisseurs enjoying a few celebratory crumbs this lunchtime!
