Sea Glass by Archie

Happy Father’s Day greeting card. Hand made with love using sea glass foraged on the beaches in Folkestone Kent.
My range of cute sea glass cards started in the summer of 2018 whilst walking my Labrador ‘Bolt’ on the sunny beaches in Margate.
Like a magpie I began collecting sea glass….
Today I forage my sea glass in picturesque Folkestone. The glass is more tumbled as the beaches are stony. I believe there was a Victorian glass factory in Folkestone and therefore this piece of sea glass is most likely over 100 years old!
Available online on my website seaglassbyarchie.co.uk
These cost £4 including first class postage. I post first class the same day of order but currently first class is taking 5-6 days.

Beer-loving Dads are sure to enjoy pouring a pint from one of Shepherd Neame’s new range of mini kegs.

The independent family business has just launched its first range of 5 litre mini kegs, currently available in Whitstable Bay Pale Ale, Bear Island Triple Hopped Lager, Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale and Spitfire Amber. They are on sale now priced from £27.50, available from Shepherd Neame’s online shop: https://shop.shepherdneame.co.uk/
Shepherd Neame is offering free delivery on orders of two cases or more to any mainland UK address. The brewery is only shipping to mainland UK at this time. Orders will be processed and delivered within 3-4 working days, but there may be delays due to the ongoing situation.
