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.
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!
There are lots of ways to enjoy piskies this half term. If you are luck enough to be in the West of Cornwall we have a Pisky Trail in Coverack Village that is available daily until 2nd November 2020. 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 social bubble! 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 Autumn/Winter newsletter is now available, those of you who have signed up for our newsletter should have received it this week.
The newsletter introduces our new Festive Pisky called Nadelik the Cornish word for Christmas, thanks to one of our Facebook friends Maria for the name suggestion. A Festive Pisky has a loop so it can be used as a decoration and a bit of sparkle to add to that festive feel. Nadelik is dressed in Teal and has a mint coloured collar and sparkle edge to their tunic. Nadelik, and all our Cornish Pisky Pals are available to buy from our website so wherever you are in the world you can enjoy a little bit of Cornwall in your home.
The newsletter also includes a Pisky wordsearch and Pisky story, that describes how Cornish Piskies manage the darker evenings with the help of glow in the dark lights !
Our newsletter will soon be available to download for free from our website, if you can’t wait please contact us and we will email a newsletter to you.
