Winter Sales Favourites Part II - Jill Barrett's Weekly Blog

Posted on 10 January 2016

Welcome, and I'm delighted to report that our Winter Sale is breaking all records! There's a real buzz about the place, and often a queue at the till. The footfall in Woodbridge seems to be up too. I think the local independent shops, cafes and restaurants we now have in Woodbridge are really top notch in terms of choice, quality of service, and value. Special congratulations to Harvey and the Honey & Harvey team with their recent extension, which is proving a huge success. 

This week is Part II of my Winter Sale bargain favourites, so without further ado, let's get started...


I love natural flooring such as sisal, jute, coir and seagrass. They bring organic textures to your home that add depth and richness, and something that bit different. Natural flooring really bridges the gap between a traditional room scene and a more contemporary style, and is a good fit for both looks. My favourite is the Sisal Panama from the wonderful Alternative Flooring, and is great value at 15% off, as is all Carpets, Natural Flooring, Luxury Vinyl Tiles, and Wood Laminates in our Winter Sale.

Beds, Mattresses and Headboards

I am very lucky to own a Hypnos bed - they are truly fit for a Queen (Hypnos are the only company supplying the Royal Household, so the Queen actually sleeps on a Hypnos bed!). They are also a family run company like ourselves, and a great example of quality British manufacturing. We visited their factory in Princes Risborough a few years ago, and it was fantastic to see so many people hand making beds from scratch, using all their own made components. Lovely people to deal with too. The Pillowtop Cirrus oozes sumptuous comfort, and is the higher spec version of the one Lenny Henry enjoys so much at Premier Inn.

Dining Room Furniture

Last week I did Occasional Furniture, and now it's the turn of its bigger brother - Dining Room Furniture. Whilst we don't have football pitch sized showrooms, we are big enough to stock two really stylish and beautiful furniture ranges. The one I'm going for is the Barley range. It looks super and it's British made, and trust me when I say it's very difficult to find good quality dining room furniture still made in GB. The Barley range comes in four attractive and practical colours, and is finished with lovely American Oak tops. Plus we have 15% off the entire range in our Winter Sale.

15% OFF Andrena ‘Barley’ 4’ Glazed Dresser - was £2,171 NOW £1,845
Please note we offer the free option of having the plinth at the bottom parallel to the ground, without the scrolling. We think it looks better and more contemporary. Pop into the store to see what it looks like.



The Rug Department is doing so well at the moment. Our new Flooring Department team of Gary, Dan and John have made such a difference, and I know John in particular really enjoys working with the rugs. I also think we've got the best selection we've ever had. We have beautiful styles such as Bokhara, Kazak, Ziegler, and Kundos, all hand-knotted and all 100% wool. You can even try them at home before you decide with our 'appro' service.  When you buy a rug from Barretts, you are buying a family heirloom! We also have super reductions in our Winter Sale, with 10% off to £100, 15% off from £100 up to £500, and 20% off all rugs over £500.

I'm going to sneak one more item from my own beloved Linens department, and it's the ever popular 'Hotel' collection of super quality 600 thread count 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets, plus 300 thread count 100% Egyptian Cotton sateen stripe duvet covers and pillowcases. Top quality at 50% off - amazing!

One more thing before I sign off - the good people at Yorkshire Building Society are collecting bed linen, towels, toys etc. for the flood victims in Cumbria, which is a great idea.  A lovely customer of ours told me about it so I took some "seconds" into their Woodbridge branch last week.  I know these poor people are in all of our thoughts and prayers - please give generously.

See you next week!
