model Spitfire - kits available from Poole's Cavern
If like me you find buying Christmas presents for people difficult, then why not take a trip up to Poole’s Cavern visitor centre and have a browse around the shop. Parking is easy and while you are there you can grab a hot drink and a slice of cake to give you that little bit of extra energy to get some shopping done.
Some gifts that are on sale, that are worth mentioning are the model airplane kits. There are four different models available, with the Spitfire and the Hurricane being the most popular. A great way of spending a couple of hours assembling the model, or perhaps helping someone put one together and they have the added bonus that they actually fly.
Buxton Town Team have commissioned an illustrated map of the town. Combining the work of a number of local artists, the map is printed in full colour at A1 size (about 33 x 22 inches) and shows the town and its surroundings with illustrations of key points in its history, buildings and people. A handy timeline makes the point that people have been settled here for thousands of years. The map is available at the shop along with some Buxton tea towels.
There is also a wide range of Onyx candle holders, hand crafted stone bowls and goblets, book ends and paperweights, beautiful handmade silver jewellery. The shop also stocks lovely soaps and balms from the Bakewell Soap Company and a wide range of books and guides to the Peak District.
A final thought if you are looking for something to give someone local. Why not combine a year’s Membership of Buxton Civic Association with a one of the Panoramic Prints of the View from Solomon’s Temple.
The shop is open 7 days a week, from 10-4 pm
