Rings ready for Valentine's Day
SOME Bundaberg women may be walking around with extra jewellery on Sunday, with Valentine’s proposals in the works.
Proctors Jewellers owner Bernice Proctor said recent purchases had her suspecting some special proposals.
“We’ve had a couple of really good bites on engagement rings, but we will have to wait for the day to see how that turns out,” she said.
She said business had been steady, with bracelets and earrings the clear Valentine’s favourites this year.
Hitchcocks Fine Jewellery manager Lyn Unsworth said bracelets and beads for Pandora bracelets had been a common sale.
Ms Unsworth said the Valentine’s lead-up had been a bit slower than usual.
Flower Box Florist owner Karen Moller said the Valentine’s traffic had been hard to gauge this year, as the big day was scheduled to fall on a Sunday.
“It is very different this year. Some people are having deliveries a day early or a day late because having them delivered to the door on Sunday does not have the same effect,” Ms Moller said.
She said this year a combinations of flowers, chocolates, balloons and stuffed animals had been popular.
