Keen to beat that last-minute Christmas shopping rush? Of course you are! Come along to the Design Essentials Early Christmas Shopping Evening on Thursday 13th November to get ahead with those all-important presents and start enjoying the Christmas spirit.
From 5-9pm, we will be open for business and offering some incredible exclusive deals only available on the shopping evening. There will be complimentary wine (as always), and as a special pre-Christmas treat we are offering a goody bag with each purchase made on the night! A raffle draw in aid of Alzheimer’s Society will be taking place on the night, and you could be in with a chance of winning a variety of gifts kindly donated by our fellow Saffron Walden businesses. Now there’s a few ‘bright ideas’ for you…
Choose a gift for that special someone this Christmas from our huge range of unique and affordable range here at Design Essentials. For art lovers, we’ve got original prints and photographs from Saffron Walden-based creatives Michelle Thompson, and Tony White.
