thank you! + 2014 Calendar

a big thank you to everyone who so kindly stopped by our stand in Newport!

we had a super day and our stand was very well received

as you can see, we had a great selection of beautiful hare items for sale with a spectacular backdrop of 6 hare images

our volunteer gave a very informative talk, so a huge thanks for that!

it's always nice to talk about hares 

and to spend time with people who are interested in hares and finding out more about the work that we do for the Trust and the welfare of these very attractive, very enigmatic beasties

love hares?

then stop by our shop and order your calendar for 2014 

with 12 beautiful and breath-taking photos of hares to grace your wall for the next 365 days!

just the perfect treat for yourself - and the perfect present for that hare-loving someone special too!

Pin on a little tweed hare

and enjoy the last of winter's cool brisk days with a gorgeous tweed hare brooch on your lapel

or have friendly hare pinned on your bag

or keep hare warm too, as a nice accoutrement to your tartan scarf

and not just hares for every day wear, 

add some glam and pearls to your evening outfit

and perhaps your friend would appreciate a friendly (faux fur) hare too?

pop one in the post to them along with a happy note on this tender postcard

and make every day of the year the 'year of the hare'!

All available in the Hare Preservation Trust online shop, but mind, the brooches are all one-of-a-kind handmade originals by Annette, and the postcards won't be printed again and are now rare!
