Creating a Magickal Home with Inspiring Accessories

When you furnish and develop your living space, instinctively you want it to be a place of peace and serenity. Over time, it will reflect more and more of your personality, your past experiences, what inspires you at present, and how you envisage your future.

Spiritual people, who feel close to nature, are inspired by objects and furnishings that add a sense of enchantment to their homes. In addition, they seek out products that are fairly traded, sustainable and chemical free.

At Cosmic Collection we have a fabulous range of enchanting products to enhance your personal space. Here are some ideas how you can add that magickal touch to your home:

Natural Beeswax Candles - 100% natural beeswax, which is healthy and sustainable

Celtic Bedspreads - Tree of Life, Celtic Star, Demon and Astrology throws, covers in various sizes and colours

Mystical Artefacts - Buddha, Celtic Cross, Sun and Moon Plaques and more

Crystals & Gemstones - Earth's Twinkling Treasures; we only stock hand-picked pieces: pyramids, merkabah stars, skulls, crystal lights and more

Incense - Fairly traded, natural incense with no harmful additives

Oil burners - for fragrance and essential oils

Easter Blessings & Springtime Offers

After a long, harsh Winter, Spring has finally arrived. Yippee!

Today on Easter Day, I truly wish you joy and abundance for the season ahead - may you get all the chocolate eggs and bunnies you deserve!

Spring is also a time of renewal, the emergence of new life and a general feeling of happy anticipation of warmer days ahead, sunshine, frog spawn in the pond, bumble bees knocking at the window, bats at dusk, summer evenings..... keeping my bedroom window open over night, I can hear the owl toowit-tohooing and the dawn chorus that follows soon after. Yes, I'm not the best of sleepers, but listening to the birds at night and early in the morning is truly magical.

Spring fever has also arrived at Cosmic Collection HQ; we are very pleased and excited to have found new mystical products handmade by artisans in Cornwall, and we are currently busy taking photos and adding them to the website. Once this work is completed, we will let you know, so you can take a look and hopefully love the products as much as we do.

In the meantime, we have some new special offers for a magical Springtime treat:

1. Buy our stunning
ribbon embroidery velvet bag & scarf set, and we will include FREE matching make-up bag worth £7.95.

This gorgeous set is a lovely addition to your Spring wardrobe and will make you look and feel fabulous.

2. 20% off our Turquoise Patchwork notebook - a delightful little notebook handmade from recycled sari materials and fairly traded from India. Compact size; ideal for handbags.

Why not check out all our sale and special offer items; receiving a scrumptious little treat through the post is always so uplifting. Remember, we offer lots of adorable goodies for under a Fiver and many more for less than a Tenner.

At Cosmic Collection, you don't need to spend a fortune to enjoy some magical retail therapy.

Wishing you a wonderful Spring time!

Happy New Year!

Are you enjoying the snow? Well, here at Cosmic HQ we are well covered under the white fluffy stuff. If you had to cancel a trip to the January sales because of the weather, then why not take the opportunity to shop online and let the Royal Mail drop it at your house? Despite the adverse weather conditions here in Leeds, our postman dutifully turns up every day to deliver and collect mail, so no need to question the reliability of our postal service. Mind you, although we ship everything First Class and within 24 hours, please do allow a few more days for your order to arrive due to the snow, just in case.

Well, you probably know the saying The best comes to those who wait, but sometimes those who wait have to make do with the leftovers by those who got there first. So if you don't want to miss out, it's a good idea to check out our Sale & Special Offers page on a regular basis, where you can save money on end of line sale items and limited time special offers. Better still, if you join our mailing list, you will get notified of the latest offers, news and product updates.

Our product category Gifts for under £5 has proven very popular since we created it in November '09 for the Christmas shopping period. We've decided to keep it, so if you are looking for a small token of appreciation at any time of the year, you can find inexpensive but stylish gifts (such as this sparkly velvet sidebag) quickly without having to browse through all the departments for ages.

We have also created a New Products department, where you can find the latest additions to our product range, just like those cute little Hippy Fairy Flower Purses. Why not take a closer look?

Wishing you a fabulous and magickal 2010!

The Woodland Trust Autumn Raffle 2009

If you bought one or more of our notebooks / journals, then you are automatically included in this year’s Autumn Raffle by the Woodland Trust. Just in case you didn’t know, we donate 50p of the sale of each notebook to this worthwhile nature conservation charity.

When I got the ten raffle tickets through the post the other day (at £2.00 each), I thought that rather than just donating the money, a little gamble is in order to win the main prize of £5000. This makes donation a little more exciting, doesn’t it?

The prizes are as follows:

1st Prize: £5000 x 1
2nd Prize: £250 x 10
3rd Prize: £50 x 90

The price money will be shared equally between all customers, who have donated to the Woodland Trust with their purchase of our notebooks since we started trading in September 2008.

If the price money is small, e.g. £50, then my intention is to donate it back to the Trust. However, the other option is to keep it for next year’s raffle, so please let me know your thoughts on this by making a comment below.

It’s not too late for anyone interested in purchasing our beautiful, fair-trade notebooks to take part in our little gamble; all purchases made until 23rd October 2009 will qualify for this year’s raffle.

Although the deadline for returning tickets is the 7th December 2009, due to the postal strike I intend to send them by the 24th October, so they’ll get there in time.

Winners will be notified by 25th January 2010, when I will post an update here on our blog.

Start shopping and get your Christmas presents early: Handmade Notebooks / Journals

Best wishes,

Prediction Magazine Promotions

We are pleased to know that the good people at Prediction Magazine like the products we sell, and quite a few have been featured in various issues this year.

In the latest copy (August 2009) our handmade sequined notebooks have had a lovely mini review. Indeed, apart from using them as a diary, address book or dream journal they can also be used as a photo album or scrap book:

You can find more handmade notebooks here. And you will be pleased to know that 50p of the sale of each notebook will be donated to the Woodland Trust at the end of this year. The UK needs more trees!

Talking about trees, our Celtic Tree of Life bedspread featured in last month's edition:

Everyone loves the dreamy, fairy-like, sacred image on this bedcover, so it has become quite a bestseller. We also stock similar designs in larger sizes.

Cosmic Collection's magickal range of feel-good products also includes stylish, limited edition gemstone bracelets. We had a shock the other day when we were told by our supplier that the flower-shaped bracelets are being discontinued! We only have a few left, so while stocks last you can treat yourself to something that is hard to find elsewhere, something unique and unusual - a refreshing change to the mass-produced products all over the high street.

Until next time,

Welcome to the All New Cosmic Collection

Not even a year has passed, and Cosmic Collection was unhappy with her face, so she decided to have a drastic make-over. The usual treatments were applied:

  • facelift (a powerful new eCommerce platform, applying a refreshed, streamlined and youthful look)

  • botox (adding new features such as reward points and wish lists), and finally

  • make-up and wardrobe overhaul (new colours and a lovely new banner)

Some work is still going on in the background, e.g. detox (identifying and removing cyber bugs and gremlins) and a healthy diet (new products being added). If you notice something odd while you browse our site, please do let us know.

We do hope you like what you see, but in any case, please let us know what you think.

In order to celebrate our new launch, we are offering all our customers a 15% discount on all orders during July. Please use discount code HAPPYDAYS on the checkout page. We don't make these offers very often, so why not take advantage of it?

Have a great Summer!

The Cosmic Collection Team
