WELCOME to Summer 2011

Christmas is my favourite time of year with parties, gift buying, decorating the Christmas tree, time with family and friends, and of course last but not least – the food! However, organising all of this can be quiet time consuming. Therefore, to assist your next visit to Brookside, we welcome you to our Holiday Style edition of ‘Season’.

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous season, and happy shopping.
