Okay so it’s mid-October but, in my opinion, this is the month when it starts to feel like winter again, with darker nights and colder mornings.
Most people are thinking about Halloween and Bonfire Night, but I’m already making my Christmas list! I love organising what I’m going to give to my friends and family, and one of the first things I do is purchase my Christmas cards. Choosing cards for your friends and family can sometimes be difficult with so many styles and options. I always like to pick designs which I think they will personally like. There are plenty of cards available from National Museums Liverpool, so I make sure our Merchandising and Buying team point me in the right direction. Here is their guide to help you to choose something for each person.
We are really excited by the exhibition, Retail Assistant Merchandising Manager, Karen Taylor particularly. She studied Egyptology prior to joining the museum and used her insight and passion to select the gifts for visitors to the exhibition. Here are Karen’s top five picks.
Hannah McColgan, Retail Operations Manager blogs about the Museum of Liverpool’s very own toy story:
“Last week the Museum of Liverpool was thrilled to be awarded a Toymark Award for Good Practice 2016 by consumer action group Let Toys Be Toys, in recognition of how all toys and books in our shops are offered to both boys and girls regardless of the item’s gender stereotype.
