Let's Go Shopping

Let's Go Shopping

April 12, 2021

After what must undoubtedly be the hardest winter of our business lives, non-essential retailers in England have opened their doors today to shoppers, hungry for bargains or simply to enjoy shopping for things they like. As the pandemic lockdown eases, we can begin to enjoy things that for all our lives we have taken for granted, including shopping.

For me, it means that I can get a new bra, some skinni-fit jeans and walking boots, all things that I was happy to browse for online, but not to buy.  I can enjoy running my fingers over silk, cotton or wool, and seeing colours pop out at me as I walk down aisles of summer dresses. It also means that retailers who stock my brand will be opening their doors and I wanted to wish all of them well and say a special thank you to some of my favourites ....

Westward Ho! mug by Julia Gash for Everything Westy, Devon

Westward Ho! is in my home county but on a different coast, facing north west, over the Atlantic.  It's also where the delightful Everything Westward sells its wonderful collection of nautical themed giftware and homewares including mugs, tea towels and canvas tote bags printed with my Westward Ho! artwork.

Wales Canvas Tote Bay by Julia Gash for Weird Fish

Across a stretch of sea is Carmarthen, where, at the Weird Fish casual clothing store, I created a live artwork of Wales, which was printed and sold as a natural, canvas tote bag.  I've worked with Weird Fish on several stores across the country and it's a great, creative partnership.

 Southwell Minster mug and canvas tote bag by Julia Gash

I collaborate with many of England's finest ecclesiastical institutions including Southwell Minster, which is close to where I grew up in Nottinghamshire. This canvas tote bag and mug are part of a collection, celebrating one of Europe's most beautiful cathedrals, noted for its stone carvings, and is sold in Southwell Minster's lovely gift shop.

 Falmouth Coaster and Mug by Julia Gash

I have also created artworks for many of Britain's wonderful museums and art galleries including the National Maritime Museum located in Falmouth, Cornwall. They sell a range of giftware, including the cork backed coaster and ceramic mugs shown here, that they sell in their maritime themed gift shop in Falmouth.

London Natural Canvas Tote Bag by Julia Gash for Selfridges

Natural canvas tote bags, mugs, tea towels, stationery and souvenirs are printed with my map themed artworks and sold by retailers all over the world, including Selfridges department store in the West End. Here's my London natural canvas tote bag being received rather enthusiastically by a lovable corgi.  Happy Shopping :-)
