Changes are afoot at Livery St

Soon all this will change...


Pour yourself a glass of wine and brace yourself . . . As some of you may be aware our Livery Street store is about to undergo some asthetic alterations to spruce up the store and accommodate lots of lovely new things. Unfortunately, for these alterations to occur, the store will be closed from 24th April till 10th May (all being well). But for those of you who may struggle whilst the alterations take place, our Dovehouse store with its enomatic wine dispenser will be open as normal and happy to deal with all your wine related needs.

We shall still be around to take your telephone calls on 0121-709-3734 for Dovehouse, or 0121-236-9269 for the Office (aka 'The Shed'). We look forward to welcoming you to the new look Connolly's Jewellery Quarter very soon.

At the time, it seemed almost like staring into a black hole, knowing that you had to take the next step but blind to whatever lay below. I remember thinking (and saying to anyone prepared to listen) that this was “our generation’s war,” we’d never experienced anything approaching global conflict and in 2020 we’d reached payback time, only to be faced with an adversary that responded neither to bombs nor white flags (nor bleach). Frightened for ourselves, for our friends and families and frightened for businesses and careers that we’d spent lifetimes developing, all we could do, it seemed, was to keep washing our hands and hope for the best.
