Barry And District News: Treasures

Treasures – gifts and Yankee candles, in Llantwit Major is a real find. Not only can you find an ideal gift, but you’ll also find the shop is one of the first Welsh outlets for Teddy Mountain Bears.
Teddy Mountain Bears are amazing for children. Select from a range of plush unstuffed bears – choose from bears, dogs, unicorns or dragons to name a few – stuff each bear by hand, add a heart, love and any accessories from a wide range and off the pair go, best friends for life. You can elect to create the bear in the shop or take a complete “Bear in a box” kit home and DIY. If you are looking for a different type of children’s party, have a Teddy Mountain Party at a venue of your choice, with a party planner and each child goes home with their own bear and birth certificate. Unlike other Bear-making franchises, Teddy Mountain is much more hands on, children can immerse themselves in the experience and their friend has even more meaning because they filled it.
The shop has been opened for 2 years, and has changed and evolved its stock to meet customers’ requirements – As well as Yankee, also stocked are Woodwick and Village candles. Bomb cosmetics also have a corner, they look so good you almost want to eat them. For special gifts, there is a beautiful selection of jewellery that would adorn any loved one.
