The OUMNH Shop

Do visit the OUMNH shop where the dodo survives in many forms, and dinosaurs abound in a landscape of carefully selected minerals and fossils. Local craftsmanship is represented by Lesley Reeves' silver brooches, and by Sara Withers' necklaces of semi-precious stones. There are Cotswold limestone clocks, and hand-painted crepe de Chine ties. For warming drinks the entertaining Tyrrell Katz designs are to be joined any day by our own bone china dodo mugs (272961 for availability!); while for the long holiday period there are varied models waiting to be made, with the life-size osprey for the most ambitious. BBOWT and other Christmas stationery, stocking-fillers, and party packs. And—for the first time, a fund-raising CD, `Music for the OUMNH', played by the European Union Baroque Orchestra (£10). Open daily 12–5 p.m.until 5 p.m. Tues. 21 Dec. Holiday opening 28–30 Dec. inc., and daily from noon, Tues. 4 Jan. Shop enquiries/orders (2) 72961.
