Christmas At Ransoms

Make it a Ransoms Christmas 

At Ransoms we do start Christmas early, in fact we will be preparing for Christmas 2020 in December 2019!  We make no apology for starting our Christmas build in September  because I know, from over 18 years of experience and so much positive customer feedback,  that the time and effort the Ransoms team plough in to putting on a good show is appreciated.   The team itself extends from buying, admin, stores to shop floor both inside and out – everyone is involved.

What you might not know, and something of which we are proud, is how we use recycled and unwanted props (tables, dressers, chairs, etc.), repurpose and use them as part of our shop fittings – we always get a buzz out of make-do-and-mend where we can. It takes extra time but we believe that where we can use old, pre-loved pieces, it gives Ransoms Christmas display a point of difference and adds to the atmospheric retail theatre.

It’s important to remember that creating a memorable Christmas experience is not just about baubles, lights and trees.  It makes a huge difference if you use that same eye for detail throughout with home fragrances, cushions, throws, flowers, plants, tableware and lighting – you can add to your collection and look each year.  I love bringing out old Christmas pieces and remembering when and where they came from – nothing like a good measure of nostalgia to add to the Christmas experience!

What are the trendsetting themes for 2019?  Here’s a peek preview with colours and words that give you an idea of what we’ve tried to create for our customers.
