Better late than never, as they say.
We went to Bakewell today and finally bought Julia’s birthday present. We’d originally gone to the retail park just off the M1, then Matlock Bath, and finally Bakewell. Derbyshire seemed quite busy, with several Christmas events taking place.
We eventually ended up in a very nice jeweller’s shop and selected the pendant and chain in the main picture. It’s forget-me-nots in a silver mount. I’m not sure what the clear stuff is – it’s tempting to call it crystal but it’s probably some sort of plastic. This is the 21st century, after all, and it was very reasonably priced.
To sum up – Julia likes it, it looks good and it wasn’t expensive. What’s not to like?
When we left the shop they gave us a crystal angel decoration to celebrate their 15 years in business in Bakewell.
If you happen to be in Bakewell they are in Water Street and open from 10.00 until 5.00.
They have a great selection of stock and I could have bought more, but Julia decided to be economical.
