Beautiful items make great gifts
The crosses and hearts always grab my eye when I stroll around Walker and Co and now that it’s time to cross relatives’ names off the ‘ To Buy For’ Christmas list the only hard part is which one to chose.
They would be perfect for my sister, who has recently bought her first home. I chose a heart because as they say ‘home is where the heart is’.
The various home decorations ‘pop’ against the country colour scheme that owner, Tina Walker, has used in the shop.
I know my mum would love to go on a shopping spree here. She would love the vases, jugs and urns which come in so many styles and range from neutrals to eyecatching vibrant colours.
My mum, like most proud home owners, not only wants her home to look clean and tidy, she also wants it to smell nice.
Tina said the heart shaped melts are very popular with her customers of all ages, as are the soy scented candles which are infused with fragrances like strawberries and champagne or the ever popular french pear.
Other popular products are the Christmas decorations, ranging from berry swags to sparkly doves, as well as unique Christmas trees and nativity scenes, cute reindeer and angels.
Silk flowers and topiary balls are also popular to bring some colour into a home and they are so realistic now days.
Tina said she started Walker and Co in October last year because she wanted to provide customers of all ages with beautiful things for the home as well as the basic essentials in linen and kitchenware. Her husband Gary has been building for the last 35 years and the shop is an addition to what they do.
So with Tina’s customer service skills and her eye for great products and presentation, my Christmas shopping experience was a breeze.
Loaded up with my presents all beautifully gift wrapped and revelling in the joy I will see on my family’s faces as they open their gifts, I left knowing that my family are going to be rapt on Christmas Day.
