Get on down to the Art Shak.

The Women in Newbury networking group were last night treated to a talk by Kym Mason of the Art Shak. Where is the Art Shak, you may well ask!

Far nearer than you think, probably. It's ten minutes outside of Newbury on the B4009 Hermitage Road, hidden away behind a garage. A multimap of the location can be found here.

From the beautiful things that Kym brought to show us, this Aladdin's cave is well worth the short trip. Kym specialises in finding unique and unusual gifts, all at a very reasonable price. She stocks artists such as :

  • Nan Pas, who makes gorgeous silver jewellery;
  • Jangles, supplier of 'witchy balls', crystal balls reputed to scare away witches (or mother in laws?!) when hung at the window;
  • Lotus Feet, who make lovely coconut shell jewellery;
  • White wood, with their fabulous dichroic cufflinks and jewellery;
  • Rocky Point, who make covetable unique handbags.
It is probably best to call Kym to check current opening times before setting out; her number is 077525 06334. Once you get there, you are sure to find many gifts that will certainly impress the lucky recipients (and maybe a few things for yourself, too!)
