We've currently got lots of things in the pipeline here at Siesta with a pair of buying trips coming up very soon to Bali and Thailand. As well as the usual search for new products we will also be visiting lots of our existing suppliers to take lots of photos of the goods being made. New shipments are also due over the next couple of months from Mexico, Thailand, Bali, Nepal and India so there should be plenty of exciting items coming in soon. Due to one of our suppliers in Nepal relocating their shop and factory we have an excellent range of bargain knitwear for this winter so stock up on some warm woollies now.
We are pleased to report that we have made a further donation to both MAG (Registered UK charity 1083008) and LEOT School of English (Registered UK Charity 115944.) This time we were able to send £233.16 to each charity from the sales of Bombangles and we would like to thank all the customers who have purchased them and made this possible.
Our Jewellery section of the website has been a roaring success with of our customers making repeat orders after trying out a few pieces in their usual orders. The initial selection of fantastic Mexican earrings has now been expanded to include beautiful pieces from Nepal and Peru. We've also been working towards expanding our range of Buddhist jewellery which you can see here.
The last shipments from Indonesia and Nepal that arrived recently contained a number of larger one-off artisan pieces that are now available in our Unique Items section. Of you are after a centrepiece show stopper then please check out these beautiful items. We added a range of massive singing bowls that are large enough to stand in as well as the most expensive item we've ever added to the website: a huge 10kg elaborately etched singing bowl.
We've also got a couple of huge laughing Buddhas from Bali, giant elaborately carved and decorated masks and a selection of beautiful, hand-painted wheel of life Buddhist thankas, framed in silken feeling brocade.
