Attention wizards!

your very own Hedwig

An owl of your very own. Your very own Hedwig.
This splendid creature is just waiting for one special budding Harry Potter and is available now (unless he's already been sold) in the gift shop.
Carved by artist, Tom Reid, this noble creature stands approximately 7 inches tall and would make an imperious addition to a mantelpiece near you.

Please apply in person (wand not included).

Critter Adopt-A-Thon 2011: the equine edition

horses for courses

Empty stable?
Spare paddock or two?
Spare hay?
Surplus oats?
Look no further than artist Cathy Rycroft's beautiful and lifelike paintings of these graceful creatures. Either a print, card or painting on stone is sure to delight the horse fanatic in your life (and might temporarily delay the "when can I get my own pony?" demands).

NB: all Blackberry Gift Shop adoptees are fully housetrained and sociable (no vices).

Critter Adopt-A-Thon 2011: Cheekiness Unlimited

cheeky chappy

For those of you seeking a livelier addition to the family, may I humbly suggest this cute little chipmunk by Sarah Ronald? This little guy will soon have you on your toes as he empties your pantry of nuts, breakfast cereal and raisins.

Ideal for; sedentary families who want to exercise more, minimal kitchen devotees, obese indoor cats which need more stimulation, teenagers who find it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings

All Blackberry adoptees come fully housetrained.
