Business Almost as Usual

At Gillies Jones we are following current expert advice and adapting to the times.

We will be closing our doors to visitors for the time being.

We will be in the studio working and able to post online and telephone orders out to you.

We are a small independent maker, so right now, we appreciate your support more than ever.

Of course, the situation with Coronavirus is changing rapidly. It seems almost daily that we have new advice.

We are doing our very best to navigate these choppy waters. We remain very much open for business are fulfilling orders by post.

We will continue to blow glass and so, therefore, by nature of the process we have our doors open and will welcome visitors.

Keeping in mind our health and the wellbeing of our assistant, we will continue to monitor the situation and be guided by expert advice.

In these difficult times, we are focusing on springs bounty and enjoying the fresh air of the North York Moors.
