Two friends of mine (Myfanwy and Tom Gloster) opened a coffee shop in Porthmadog called Pethau Melys (welsh for Sweet Things) in 2011. I have previously written about Pethau Melys, when I mentioned that they were embarking on a new venture – Glosters – at 2 Bank Place in Porthmadog as a shop window for Tom’s pottery and Myfanwy’s textile creations.
In addition to their own creations, Tom and Myfanwy stock other hand made creations. One that caught my eye on a recent visit was Lou Rollholder. Made from household items it holds a toilet roll, and stores several inside.
Other items include Porthmadog tea towels, cards, cushions, etc. A browse through the Glosters Web Site will show the wide variety.
Myfanwy regularly changes the window display, and for the summer of 2015, she has developed a seaside theme.
Included in this years display are sandcastles, whales, jellyfish and a barbecue. A sunny day did not make it easy to photograph, however there are more images in the associated Glosters photo album.
If you ever visit Porthmadog, Glosters is well worth a visit, and no amount of description here, or browsing of the Glosters Web Site will do it justice.
