I want to start this newsletter by thanking my brother, Nick for being such an excellent help in the shop. As most of you will know, Celtic Connexions has an extensive range of products for sale. This presents a challenge to me, and I have been working here for 12+ months! Nick has been here for less than one month, and he is already going solo, and doing a fantastic job. Nick, you're a champ!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BOB!
Bob began his 60th Birthday celebrations early, with his family in Scotland a few days ago. His birthday haggis was 'piped' in with a combination of piano, guitar and tin whistle. From the sounds of it, Bob is enjoying himself! If you are keen to see some photos from his adventures, please check out the Celtic Connexions Tours blog - where Bob has uploaded two nice little slide-shows: "Stone Henge" and "The Lizard".
These stunning pendants make excellent gifts - only $65 each, with the option of matching earrings ($120 for a set). Six gemstones available.
This post is titled 'Amber' for a good reason - during the past few weeks Amber has been the gemstone of choice for our customers; out-selling our previous number-one, Turquoise. I wonder whether people are particularly attracted to the warmth and vitility of this beautiful gemstone now that we are experiencing the tail end of the cool and dark Winter months. It is during this transition of seasons that I find myself craving the warm brightness of the sun.
For whatever reason, anyone who is interested in joining the Amber trend can get a good deal from Celtic Connexions. I am pleased to offer you any of the four lovely Amber pendants pictured above, for the special price of $65 each. Earring-pendant sets can be ordered for the special price of $120. These pendants also come in Amethyst, Malachite, Turquoise, Rainbow Moonstone and Lapis.

DON'T FORGET YOUR TICKET!
I still have tickets available for the Saint Andrew's Day celebration to be held in Te Kowhai Hall, on November 26th, 2011. Please send me an email for details: email@example.com. I would also like to hear from anybody who has Scottish goods they would like to sell on the day.
RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS
Are you wanting one of the Chillis' CDs? I am in the process of making another order, as the last lot has sold out very quickly. Please let me know which CD you want a.s.a.p. so that I can ensure you do not miss out!
All the best from me,
