Metroscope Christmas 2010 newsletter

Done all your Christmas shopping?

Itea glass candlesf not, don’t forget there is a beautiful array of Moroccan treats awaiting you at Metroscope. Prices start at $6 for Moroccan tea glasses in a range of colours and styles and go all the way up to $1,550 for a very large round mosaic table. There are lots of things to choose from in between.

Recently we had some of our tea glasses made into candles with non-toxic soy wax. They look fantastic, are great very reasonably priced gifts and will burn for over 20 hours. And when the candle has finished the glass can be washed and used again as a tea glass. We have them unscented or scented with exotic ginger blended with warm clove, cinnamon and bay leaf, sweetened with a touch of vanilla. Light one of these tea glass candes and it will transport you back to a Moroccan spice shop (without the hassling!)studio id pic

Our ceramics will make great presents and we have some very inexpensive hand-painted tiles, bowls and mini-tagines which will make good stocking fillers or for the work kris kringle. And then we have our beautiful new Fes platter range – they’ll look stunning as a decoration on the wall or a sideboard or can be used for serving food.

There are lots of other things in stock – magical lanterns, mosaic tables, pressed metal tables and lots more.

We can safely send most of our wares to country Victoria or interstate, but if you’re wanting anything prior to Christmas, you’ll need to to organise this with us in the next week.

We’re extending out Christmas trading hours. We’re open:

  • Saturday 18th December from 10 to 5
  • Sunday 19th December from 11 to 5
  • Monday 20th through to Thursday 23rd December from 12 to 6
  • Friday 24th December from 12 to 5.

If those times don’t suit , give us a call and we’ll make a time that does. We’ll be having a bit of a break after Christmas and will re-open for trading on Sunday 2nd January. We’ll be around, so if you’d like to come in, give us a call or email us.  After that we’ll be back to our normal weekend trading times.

If we don’t see you before Christmas , we wish you and your families all the best and a happy, healthy and safe new year.

Once again we thank you for  your support, encouragement and travel stories over 2010 and look forward to seeing you in 2011.
