Roll on 2022

Friday 3rd December 2021

Following covid and the get back to work we were hoping that the normal trophy business would soon return. Although work is returning it is very very slow, with little or no Trophy orders some weeks. Therefore we have decided to keep our reduced hours of Mon to Fri 9 till 3pm for a little bit longer. Luckily as we are engravers of most things, this is occupying us through this quiet time with local companies requiring engraving work. We also have our online shop www.thelittlewelshgiftshop.com for personalised gifts etc. Roll on 2022 lets hope we can soon get back to normal very soon.

Ho Ho Ho Here we go again!

Tuesday 21st September 2021

Happy Tuesday everyone. Annette here again. So yesterday I heard my first Christmas song being played on the radio, yes I really did I was not dreaming! No way I hear you say, its only September but I kid you not Maria Carey could be heard loud and clear beating out her dulcet tones to all I want for Christmas is you. Now don't get me wrong I like a bit of Maria "who doesn't" but seriously is it too early? Some say "yes it is we haven't even had Halloween yet" but I do have one particular friend who I can hear saying "hell no never to early for Christmas songs" and she knows who she is. Ill just leave…

Back in business April 12th

Wednesday 7th April 2021

Following the announcement from the Welsh government, we have been given April 12th as the date that non essential businesses can reopen. We look forward to seeing all of our regular and new customers very soon. Obviously there will be covid rules to abide to but i think we are all used to wearing masks, disinfecting hands and keep our distance by now. We also have a customer screen and the shop is disinfected regularly to keep you as safe as possible.

New venture, branding and website.

Saturday 27th February 2021

Since March 2020 Severn Trophies like many other companies suffered tremendously at the hands of covid. Hoping this year would be better it appears that we will still be suffering with very little or no trophy work. We decided to diversify more into gifts and you can view our new website here. www.thelittlewelshgiftshop.com Supplying a range of Welsh gifts, glassware, personalised gifts and lots more. We will still be doing the Trophies alongside our new venture. Like most companies we are just trying to keep our head above water. If you could like and share our new Facebook page too that would be fantastic. Facebook. thelittlewelshgiftshop

Thing is i have a beautiful shop with lots of products in the shop everything looks pretty and shiny but my heart sinks as there is zero footfall coming in. I am lucky that i have some work and for that i am thankful but i so miss the…

Is online shopping the way forward?

Wednesday 14th October 2020

Well 2020 has certainly been an unusual year to say the least. Eight months in and im asking myself what is the way forward for small businesses like myself? With very few people coming in the shop for trophies, I am relieved that I offer other services too. With my engraving services at least I can still make Welsh Slate House Signs, Memorial Plaques, Medal Hangers, Engrave photos onto slate plaques, Custom engraved gin wine and beer glasses. Bespoke medals etc. At least all of these can be sold online, looks like this is the way forward for the time being. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon and next year the trophy trade as many other trades will…
