Jerpoint are about to launch their first online shop in December, featuring beautiful illustrations by Kathleen Leadbetter, exclusive online offers, lots of information about glassblowing, events at the studio and videos. Much thought has gone into the new format so that Jerpoint customers can see at a glance the options available. With the introduction of the online shop now you can shop for all your favourite Jerpoint pieces from the comfort of your own home.
Although a trip out to the Jerpoint Studio in Stoneyford is not to be missed, especially at Christmas-time where you can enjoy the delicious mince pies and coffee while you browse through the wide range of beautiful giftware. The Christmas Corner has an abundance of unusual decorations to enhance your home this festive season.
Jerpoint is offering free shipping in Ireland for purchases over €75. Also all customers are entered into a free draw.
