Is it too early to talk about Christmas shopping?


I've put it off for as long as I can but this year I'm getting really excited about the festive season because we have so much going over the next few months. Apparently, *studies show our brains' pleasure centers light up brighter when we give than when we receive so think how amazing you will feel knowing that when you give an awamu gift you are giving twice - as all the profit we make goes to support orphaned children like Tom through school.

Over the next few weeks we are going to be filling our on-line shop with new goodies that will make brilliant Christmas gifts and stocking fillers for grown up and kids alike.

And if you'd like to browse and see us in real life there are going to be lots of opportunities...

  • In Bristol the Secret Circus pop-up shop opening on the 16th of November in Cabot Circus. They will be selling unique stylish gifts - artist books, re-upholstered furniture, antiques, vintage clothing, cards, maps, Awamu kids clothes and toys and gifts,  comics, books and prints with prices ranging from 50p for vintage stamp broaches to £400 for designer printed re-upholstered furniture.
