How many Cornish Pisky Pals could you find?

Posted on Leave a comment

Those of you who received our Summer newsletter may remember we included a photo of Cornish Pisky Pals hiding among hydrangeas. How many Piskies could you find?

The below Cornish Pisky Pals all enjoyed hiding in the summer newsletter photo.

Koska, named after the Cornish word for sleep was sleeping soundly among the flowers.

Izzy, dressed in shades of purple is feeling very pleased with herself to have hidden so well.

Sam, our farming Cornish Pisky Pal was enjoying a much needed rest after an early start to the working day.

Katie, dressed in pink was pleased to hide in a colour co-ordinated flower.

Hero, managed to hide the colours of the rainbow.

Ailla, named after the Cornish word for most beautiful, enjoyed hiding in such a beautiful place.

Demelza discovered hydrangea flower to bounce rather well and enjoyed trampolining.

If you found seven Cornish Pisky Pals hiding, well done!

Introducing our new Cornish Pisky Pal, Steren

Posted on Leave a comment

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!

Pisky Forever Homes Competition!

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.

Competition! New limited Edition Cornish Pisky Pal to be won!

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 info@cornishpisky.co.uk

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!

Piskies share their love of Cornwall with a special offer…

Posted on Leave a comment

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.

A sweet special offer on Cornish fudge – pisky sized!

Pisky Fudge: One of the Cornish Pisky Pals’ favourite treats!

Pisky Fudge is made just up the road from Pisky HQ at Roskilly’s Farm, sold in 100g bags of tiny cubes of delicious Clotted Cream Fudge, perfect for sharing…or not! It can be enjoyed as a treat on its own and is also perfect for baking.

Pisky Fudge is usually sold in local shops and at our Pisky Trails but, due to the current situation, sales have dropped and this will be the last Pisky Fudge available for some time. This weekend you can get four 100g bags of Pisky Fudge £10 delivered direct to your door while stocks last. (The best before date is the end of June 2020)

There are lots of things you can do with Pisky Fudge! Why not try some of these ideas.

Delicious sprinkled on ice cream.

A birthday treat

We’d love to see your pisky fudge creations!
