Here is a picture of our lovely shop window. Although the lady seems in a hurry to get past I can assure you it took a while before I could find a gap in the browsers to get a clear shot.
If you are beginning to panic about the fact you have only bought one Christmas present which was for yourself then rest at ease as Arthur Beale can come to the rescue. You don’t have to be a seafarer to appreciate the quality of our gear, we have something for everyone!
Here are a couple of my favourites:
The Boaties Baking Pan. It is pure genius, the handle is removable so it keeps cool. No more staggering around with two gravy sodden tea towels. Keep one hand for the boat and extract the roast with ease and safety. Also makes the biggest ever frying pan for a real killer breakfast. It fits boat stoves and there is no handle to whack as you dash below for the storm jib. Only £24.50
Bronze Fortune Star. Brings good luck to any boat. Supplied with a raised countersunk bronze screw in a craft presentation box. How's that for attention to detail. From £13.80
Arthur Beale Tumblers. Ditch that cut glass stuff for your Christmas wine and get a set of our top quality enamel tumblers. They do look exceptionally stylish which was more by fluke than judgement.
This is silly – I’ll be here all night, all our gear is wonderful. Just go to http://arthurbeale.co.uk/acatalog/The-Arthur-Beale-Christmas-Gift-Guide-p1.html
