Nearly there! – open again soon

We are working hard ensuring the shop will be safe for you to visit when we re-open.  We plan to open again on Monday 6th July, Monday to Saturday between 10 am and 4 pm.

Once we are open again shopping in Malt Kiln Gifts will be different than it was to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.  Changes include:  we will be social distancing and would encourage our customers to respect the guidance we give you.  We will allow a maximum of two customers in the shop at any one time, one in the till section and one in the back area.  We have installed screens around the till area and will provide hand sanitiser at the entry point and at the card terminal and we will appreciate you using it.  There will be no testers for our cosmetics and body products on display, but they will be available for you to use in a safe way if you require them.  We would prefer to take contactless card payments and as the value of these has been increased to ¬£45 this should help.  We will still take cash payments but again our procedure will make it safe to do so.  We would ask customers to shop alone and use a face covering if you are able to do so.

We look forward to seeing you all again from 6th July but if you need anything in the meantime we would be happy to open by appointment.  Just e-mail and we can sort something suitable out.

We are opening our online shop very soon so you will be able to shop online and choose a click and collect or Royal Mail delivery option so there is no need to visit the store if you would like to continue to stay safe by staying at home.

One last but the most important thing to say is stay safe, stay well and look after your families and loved ones – we have all learned a new level of appreciation regarding the things that matter most in life – and to quote the old Beatles song,  “Can’t Buy Me Love”ūüėć

Sorry we are closed

Sorry we are closed

The safety of our staff and customers is our priority. We are unable to practice the Governments advice of social distancing within the shop environment, and so The Malt Kiln will be closed for an initial period of 2 weeks from 23 March 2020. We will review the situation periodically and follow best practise as the situation develops.

This has been a difficult decision, but we believe now is the correct time to implement it.

Please be assured none of our staff have Covid-19 and they have not been in contact with anyone who has.

We thank all our customers for their support and loyalty. Please, stay safe, and look after yourself and your loved ones.

We will update as new information becomes available and we will be open again as soon as possible.

We want to make a better world for our children

We play with everything but safety

We slow cook in Barcelona

Let’s be honest as our grandparents taught us.

Spring is nearly here

Spring its nearly here

Spring is nearly here and keep asking where did January go? ¬†It has flown by and like many of us I am much happier that we are heading into February – mostly because that is when all the new Spring/Summer 2019 ranges are starting to arrive in the shop. ¬†I often get a surprise when they arrive as they were ordered ages and ages ago. ¬†It is always a pleasant surprise though, like today when I unpacked all the new Busy B stationery. ¬†I had forgotten how lovely the new spring summer colours and textures were. ¬†We have notebooks, address books and ¬†beautiful stylus pens. ¬†Don’t tell anyone but we also have¬†password reminder books ¬†(we are NOT recommending you write passwords down!! – but they are handy) – as ever with a piece of Busy B stationery there is always a couple of many wee pockets or stickers that are oh so useful and add value if you are giving the items as a gift.

We also have some lovely new Baby keepsake boxes for boys or girls and a beautiful soft grey Grandparents keepsake book which make a great gift for new grandparents.

Anyway pop in soon to see all the lovely new Spring/Summer 2019 stationery gifts from Busy B.
