When it comes to gift giving, there are two types of people in this world. There are those that like giving cash, checks, or gifts cards (now offered online) and others that like to give
something special they've chosen themselves. For many of us, the holidays are the time for food and family. When you give someone you care about a present like a handcrafted Celtic jewelry piece; you’re combining a little bit of the old with the new. It’s a uniquely modern take on gift-giving that also honors the rich Celtic culture.
The short answer is, of course, not! If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t predict what will happen next. While the world finds a way to settle into a new normal, we can expect that holiday shopping will look a lot different this season.
For one thing, due to city-wide quarantines, manufacturing hiccups, and shipping delays, everyone from major retailers and mom and pop stores are experiencing issues. Walker's is fortunate to craft all of our own work right here at our studio in Andover, NY so we can craft your items and ship them to you without waiting for a middle man. When you shop early, you take the stress out of the season and ensure your packages arrive on time.
Every year, we notice there’s always a big debate about whether online shopping or in-store shopping is better. Would you like to hear our take? We say both! Every shopper is different. It honestly, there could be a few reasons why either shopping in-store and on-line is better.
You cannot beat the convenience of shopping for celtic jewelry online. You can easily search for new looks and designs using keywords and read reviews from real live people. As our area begins to open up, and social distancing measures lift, stores may start to become congested. You can avoid the crowds and shop in peace online for either curbside pick up or shipment to you or your loved ones.
At Walker Metalsmiths, we happen to offer both in-store and online shopping to suit any shoppers needs. Let’s say you’re looking for a simple but elegant celtic necklace with traditional roping. You can schedule an in-store one-on-one appointment or consultation to make sure you find exactly what you’re looking for!
While online shopping is easy, when you stop by our location you can see the pieces for yourself and try them on. Sometimes you really need to try on a ring, a pair of earrings, and a necklace first. If you tend to be an indecisive shopper, then shopping in-store allows you to see yourself in each piece, and get some advice or feedback from our staff.
Celtic metal working has been a treasured part of our family for generations. Steve Walker is a a master craftsman and owner of Walker Metalsmiths; he actually first got started with Celtic art when he was only 11 years old.
This holiday season, when you pick a piece of hand-crafted Celtic jewelry, you’re joining our long standing family tradition. We invite you take the time to choose the perfect custom piece for you or your loved ones by scheduling time to meet with the Walker Metalsmiths team.
