This weekend sees the inaugural Cornwall Ceramics Trail kick off – a veritable delight of ceramics, their creators and working studios, all in Cornwall.
This coming Thursday is St Ives Lifeboat Day, a fun-filled family day for everybody to join together and raise some money for a great cause!
There will be lots going on including some great stalls on West Pier and the Lifeboat house, children’s rides, face painting, Cornish music and dancing from Bagas Porthia, a scrumptious BBQ and much more. The day will finish off at the Sloop Inn at 8pm for live music and the grand auction.
Our lovely St Ives store manager, Amy Iggulden will be volunteering on the day and shaking donation buckets on the pier. Seasalt will also be donating raffle prizes to help raise funds directly for the launch and recovery vehicle the lifeboat team need to continue doing the great work they already do.
It all promises to be a great day so why not pop down?
This weekend just a few of our shops will be hosting a big footwear sale, with selected items benefiting from an extra 10% off. Just the ticket for a mid summer shopping spree. Pick up everything from sandals and pumps through to boots and wellingtons, and fix yourself up for a year long shoe bonanza.
Did you know that just around the back of our lovely shop in St Ives (in the appropriately named Back Street!) we have a garage? This isn’t just any garage, this is a Seasalt Sale Garage!
And it’s now open, specially for summer, every day Monday – Friday from 10.30am – 5pm. You’ll find all sorts of bargains, so if you’re in the area don’t miss out.
Sperry Top-Sider deck shoes have been a favourite since 1935 when Paul Sperry, inspired by the pattern of cracks in his dog Prince’s paws and his ability to run nimbly over the ice and snow, used a pen knife to cut into the rubber outer sole of a trainer. As a keen sailor Paul used these new shoe soles to avoid slipping on the wet deck of his boat and so a classic was born!
There’s been an explosion of wild flowers in fields and hedgerows around our design studio in Falmouth. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s great news to hear that despite new, tough standards, over two dozen beaches in Devon and Cornwall have been named on this years prestigious Blue Flag Awards list.
Cornwall was treated to a right royal visit last week, when the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the St. Ives RNLI station. Heidi, one of our Garment Techs, spent the day in town in order to catch a glimpse of their royal highnesses – here are some photos she took and a little bit about the day…
