We are delighted to announce that we have now officially moved into our new shop! It's a significantly larger premises; still on site at the Viables Craft Centre: a delightful 100 year old building known as 'The Cottage'. With a splendid retail space, Creative Design suite, workshop and lots more exciting things planned, we are really excited!
This time last year we didn't even have planning permission approved by the council, and today we are standing in our beautiful, newly refurbished Petra Jewellery shop with five times the space, sparkling displays our very own Creative Suite and onsite Goldsmith!
We started the build back in December of last year... and it was a real family effort, everyone picked up a paintbrush and even owner Mitch's 7 year old daughter Heidi did her bit to help! Browse photos of the build...
We even made a short video during the build to keep everyone up to date with our progress. Watch the video below:
After months of hard work, we unofficially welcomed customers to our new shop at the end of May 2015. Here are some photos of the shop when we first moved in:
We weren't going to open officially without proper a celebration though! On July 18th we had our official Grand Opening Event where well over 100 customers joined us for a glass of bubbly, live entertainment and personal tours. Read more about in our Grand Opening blog.
