Based on Swan Bank in Congleton town centre, 'Serenity Designs' is a gift shop come art shop, dealing in high end products ranging from original canvas artwork through to designer greeting cards. Although small, the shop is stacked with items and offers a hassle free shopping experience, with the friendly staff allowing you time to look around without the usual 'is there anything I can help you with?' annoyance.
Serenity Designs mainly specialises in homeware, original art, jewellery and glassware, although there are other gift ideas to be found. Upon first entering the shop, my first thought was 'I can't afford this place!', but on closer inspection the prices are mainly very affordable. Don't get me wrong, there are some expensive items, original artwork doesn't come cheap, and quality furniture does command a decent price. However, on my visit I came away with some of their designer jewellery lines, which offer exclusive designs which are more original and often cheaper than the items found in your normal high street jewellers. Something of note is their, gift wrapping service, which is both cheap and excellent a must for all those poor present wrappers, of which I find myself included.
Bottom line, give the place a try, don't be put off by it's expensive looking shop window, you'll be surprised what you might find.
