Great news and awesome specials from Impressions, Richmond:
“Yes, Impressions reopens this morning at 9.30am to 5pm Monday – Friday and 10am – 1.00pm Saturdays – our new trading hours.
It will be nice to welcome folk into the shop once more instead of at a barrier at the front door or by just email and phone.
Due to Level 2 restrictions we will have safety measures in place including limiting numbers of customers in-store to 5 at a time, recording who comes in on a contact register and insisting on at least 1 metre physical spacing between everyone. We also have to limit framing customers
to just one at a time.
That said, you will have the chance to look at products before you buy. The store has gone through a thorough cleaning during Alert Level 3 and items that cannot be sanitised have been quarantined now for 7 weeks so will be safe. We do ask that customers do not handle any product that is not what you are considering buying. Hand sanitiser is available at the door to use as you enter and leave the store. And finally, payment by card is appreciated if at all possible.
This month our special deals are savings on Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper sheets and pads. Save 20% and for any Fabriano Artistico Paper purchase over $50, receive a Fabriano sable brush as our gift to you.
The other special deal on offer is a 25% discount on all Jacquard Pinata alcohol inks. These can be used on any surface and the colours are vibrant. Since we’ve had these in stock they have proven to be a real winner.
If you are still looking for a fold-up watercolour palette, I believe we have 2 or 3 on the shelf – I am writing this at home at 6.30am as I know you want the information urgently so am unable to check. Hope you enjoyed your trip – yes there are few fine art shops left now. We do rely on the support of our locals to continue to supply not only products, but also guidance as to how products work, and which ones best suit your individual needs.
