Pisky News

Welcome to Cornish Pisky Pals® Winter Newsletter 2018 Cornish Pisky Pals® is a small business, run by two sisters, Caroline and Angela. We are based in Coverack, on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall and produce a range of Pisky gifts, including our Cornish Pisky Pals®, which are individually hand made to CE standards. Wherever possible we use local businesses and source our products from Cornwall, making our business ‘As Cornish as can be!’ or ‘Mar Gernewek dell yllir!’ if you would prefer it in Cornish. Cornish Pisky Pals® are part of the ‘Made In Cornwall’ scheme.

Our Pisky products are available directly from our stall at venues, Pisky HQ and on our website: www.cornishpisky.co.uk like us on Facebook and Instagram and meet us at Pisky H.Q. or Pisky Trails. Pisky News! Pisky H.Q. Opening Hours. Through the winter months we are busy at Pisky HQ making and creating. We don’t advertise opening hours but please do get in touch if you would like to buy directly from us and visit the original home of the Cornish pisky Pals. We are still running workshops on request.

New products:

New Pisky: There is a new Christmas Pisky now available, thanks to our Facebook friend Beccy, the name Sugar Plum has been chosen, very apt as she has a white tunic and plum coloured hat, collar & shoes. As with all of our Christmas piskies there is additional glitter to enhance the festive appearance! Sugar Plum joins Sparkle, Twinkle, Noel & Yule, Mistletoe, Cracker, Jingle & Belle and they make a unique Christmas decoration, available on our website, from our stall or at Pisky HQ.

Cornish Pisky Ornament: Our own designed Cornish pisky is standing beside a toadstool and waving hello! Our hand painted Pisky ornaments are made in the UK from resin and are hand painted here in Coverack. They make a lovely Cornish gift. The ornaments are available with our five main characters or you can join us at a workshop to paint your own.

Cornish Pisky Pal voucher: Available from us or on our website, Cornish Pisky Pal £10 & £5 vouchers, redeemable at Pisky HQ or direct from us at a stall. The voucher can be used against any of our Pisky products and is the perfect gift if you are not sure which pisky to get!
