Many of you will have already enjoyed Pisky Trails this year. Every school holiday we have a different selection of Cornish Pisky Pals hiding in the pretty fishing village of Coverack, in the West of Cornwall, to form a Pisky Trail.
For those of you who don’t know where Coverack is this page for our illustrated children’s book Pisky Treasure gives you a bit more information.
There are lots of ways to enjoy piskies this summer. If you are lucky enough to be in the West of Cornwall we have two different Pisky Trails in Coverack Village, the first is available daily from 15th July until 10th August. The Piskies then regroup, some have their own summer holiday, others are out hiding in different places in Coverack every day from 12th August until 6th September 2021 for the late Summer Pisky Trail.
You can buy your Pisky Trail (£2.50) from Coverack Village Stores or The Old Mill Shop in Coverack, this will guide you to the piskies hiding in the Village. No need to book, complete the Pisky Trail in your own time, space and pace! All piskies are behind glass and we ask you don’t touch the area around the pisky to help keep everyone safe.
Our Cornish Pisky Pal Summer newsletter is now available, those of you who have signed up for our newsletter you should have received it this week, please let us know if you have not.
The newsletter updates you on our two new Cornish Pisky Pals. Steren is our new little Cornish Pisky Pal for 2021. Steren is the Cornish word for star, thank you to Sally who suggested the name on Instagram. Dressed in Teal and Purple, Steren loves the night sky!
‘Hope’ is a limited edition Pisky, dressed in Rainbow colours, starting with red shoes and finished with a purple hat. Just one batch of these little Piskies has been made and when they are gone they are gone, our stock is down to single figures now! (Hero was a new Cornish Pisky Pal from 2020 who is also dressed in rainbow colours but in a different order. Starting with purple shoes and finished with a red hat!). Hope is only available from our website and Pisky HQ.
Through the Summer, Pisky H.Q. will be open by request to buy Pisky products. We have made some safety alterations to keep us all as safe as possible, transactions will take place in the under cover area outside Pisky H.Q. Our complete range of Pisky products are available: from every little Pisky character, Pisky book, pisky accessories and much more! Please get in touch to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit Pisky HQ., situated near Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall.
Our Summer newsletter includes a photo of some Piskies hiding in hydrangea flowers, obviously we are not going to tell you just yet how many Piskies are hiding! However our next blog will give you the answer. Our Pisky story reveals one of the Piskies favorite summer fruits.
New for 2021 is a little Cornish Pisky Pal dressed in purple and teal. Lots of you suggested a name for this pisky and after much consideration we chose Steren, that is the Cornish word for star, thank you Sally Jones for this suggestion. Just like a star we think this little Pisky would brighten up any night sky! With a teal coloured tunic and hat and purple boots and collar Steren’s happy little face shines out! Steren can be purchased from our on line shop, and there is still time for Steren to be with you for Easter.
Alongside Piran, Steren has a love of the night sky and is most likely to be found star gazing!
Steren’s Birthday is 9th February. Each of our Cornish Pisky Pals is hand made by us here in Cornwall, as well as being unique they all have their own characters, for details about each pisky visit the Meet the Cornish Pisky Pals page of our website.
The little Cornish Pisky Pals are looking forward to Easter; it is the perfect time of year for Piskies. Easter is all about hunts and trails and the little Piskies love hiding…if you have ever completed a Coverack Pisky Trail you will know that some piskies are really very good at hiding!
To celebrate Easter and spring we are running a special promotion on our online shop – each little Cornish Pisky Pal ordered as an Easter gift, between now and Easter Sunday (4th April 2021), will arrive with a free handmade tiny wool basket! You can choose what you want to put in this little basket: a shell, flowers, some money or even a tiny chocolate egg!
Cornish Pisky Pals are a perfect healthy Easter gift that can be treasured for years to come, we also have other Pisky gifts available such as the Cornish Pisky Pal book ‘Pisky Treasure’, pisky Glow in the Dark Lights or if you really do want something yummy and Cornish… ‘Pisky Fudge’, Roskilly’s Clotted Cream fudge in pisky sized pieces! Pop over to our online shop to see what we little gifts could make someone’s Easter extra special!
Please add in the note to merchant section of our website that your order is an Easter gift, we will then add a free pisky Easter basket with your order. Unfortunately we are not able to retrospectively add Easter baskets to your order.
We loved seeing all the photos that were sent to us in response to our competition to win one of our limited edition Cornish Pisky Pals ‘Hope’ – Hope is dressed in all the colours of the Rainbow. The name for this little Pisky came in via Facebook and we thought that Jackie’s idea of ‘Hope’ was such a fitting name for a Pisky in the current climate! Below is a selection of just some of the entries to our competition.
Thank you to all who sent photos of their little Cornish Pisky Pals in their new forever home to us. It was a difficult decision but Eva’s photo was chosen as the winner. Eva’s little Piskies were lucky enough to have hammocks, ladder, hand drawn pictures and even little Pisky friends to make them feel very at home. Little Pisky ‘Hope’ has now arrived at Eva’s house and is being equally well looked after. Congratulations Eva and thank you for looking after your Piskies so well!
If you wish to purchase Hope, or any of our other Cornish Pisky Pals, they are available from our on line shop. Our little Piskies are individually hand made by us here at Pisky HQ with lots of love and care. Through running this competition we have seen that when the Piskies go off to their new forever homes they continue to be well looked after and cared for, it is heart-warming to see. Please look at our online shop to order a Cornish Pisky Pal, they are a lovely special gift for someone.
We have a new limited edition Cornish Pisky Pal available to purchase from our on line shop.
One lucky person will win this new Pisky, called Hope, who is looking for a new home! Read below to find out how this little Pisky could be arriving to your door, by post!
We have really missed seeing everyone over the last year. We would have met lots of you at Pisky Trails that we usually hold at Roskilly’s Farm, at Craft Fairs, and lots of you would have come to visit us at Pisky HQ, to pop into the shop or taken part in a workshop as a holiday activity or Birthday treat. During 2020 very little face to face contact has been possible and we miss you! To make us all feel a bit happier we thought we would run a little competition!
We know that a lot of you look after your little piskies really well…or would do if you had one… so we would love to see a photo! Please send us a photograph either of your Cornish Pisky Pal in their forever home or where your little Pisky would live if you had a little Cornish Pisky. Photos can be posted on our Facebook page or emailed to email@example.com
We will choose a winner on Sunday 21st February and if you win, your limited edition Pisky will be posted to your home address. Use your imagination to think where your little Pisky will feel most at home. We should mention that we love creative thinking and homemade!
The prize Pisky is not the main new Pisky for 2021 (we are working on that too!) but a limited edition Pisky only available from www.cornishpisky.co.uk we will only make a few, one as the prize and the others to go on the website but when they are gone they are gone!
Here are some photos of some very well cared for Piskies that have been sent to us over the years!
Blush and Kez are special Cornish Piskies as they are the only piskies in our collection of Cornish Pisky Pals that wink! To help share the love of Cornwall any Blush or Kez Pisky sold from our online shop between now and 10th February 2021 will come with a free red card heart with the Cornish ‘Gans Karenza’ on one side and the English ‘With Love’ on the other side. Little Piskies Blush and Kez are truly Valentine Piskies, as they celebrate their Birthday on 14th February.
If you love Cornwall, this is a unique way of sharing the love of this beautiful part of the world:
A little Cornish Pisky Pal by post, is a great way to show someone that you are thinking of them and it supports a small, independent Cornish business, which is very much appreciated in these challenging times!
As a Cornish business we in turn aim to support as many other Cornish businesses as we can, keeping our little Cornish Pisky Pals…As Cornish As Can Be!
A Cornish Pisky Pal delivered to the address of your choice in the UK costs just £8.50
There are many different colour combinations of Pisky available, each with their own names, birthdays and individual little characters! Each little Pisky is hand made by us here in Coverack, from their little button nose to their curly boot toes!
Details on the ‘meet the piskies’ page will help you find out more about your chosen Pisky! There is the option of sending your Pisky with a personalised message from Cornwall to wherever you would like in the UK.
Hopefully this will help you share the love of this very special place and perhaps trigger some lovely memories for the recipient.
Cornish Piskies have been part of Cornish life for generations and Cornish Piskies have always enjoyed Christmas! Long before any ‘elf’ sat on any ‘shelf’, the little Cornish Piskies were enjoying Christmas and causing their own mischief!
It is lovely to see that through our small business many people have decided to reclaim the Cornish tradition of a cheeky little Pisky in the house! Festive Cornish Pisky Pals® have a loop so that they can hang from a Christmas Tree alongside other Christmas decorations, they also have the addition of glitter to add to that festive feeling!
As with all Cornish Pisky Pals our Festive Piskies are completely handmade, from their little faces with individual expressions, (that are always happy!) to the laces on their tiny Pisky boots and everything in between!
Each named Festive Pisky has a different coloured outfit and details about their character and when their Birthdays are, can been found on the Meet the Festive Pisky page of the website: Twinkle & Sparkle Jingle & Belle Noel & Yule Mistletoe & Cracker Sugar Plum or Cringle And our most recent addition to the Festive Piskies Nadelik. (Nadelik means Christmas in Cornish)
All of these little festive Cornish Pisky Pals would love to join your house for Christmas…and if someone eats those special chocolates or moves the decorations around on the Christmas tree…you will know who to blame!
The main Pisky characters of: Perran, Izzy, Sam, Katie and Yasmin are also available as Festive piskies with added glitter and loop so there should be a Pisky to suit everyone’s taste!
A very Cornish Gift At this time of year, festive Perran is particularly popular as those who can’t be in Cornwall for Christmas can receive their own tiny bit of Cornwall to make them smile. Festive Perran is wearing the Cornish colours of Black & Gold and it doesn’t get more Cornish than this little chap, with his happy Cornish grin, bringing you all the luck that he can, hanging on your Christmas Tree!
