On Mindful Gifts CIC’s new year’s honours list is Noddy Holder who opened our REWIND Vinyl Record shop in Darlaston Walsall in June 2019. Noddy came back to his home town to officially open our new vinyl record shop in Church Street, Darlaston. 100s of people turned out and Noddy signed records and other memorabilia which helped us to raise further funds for the good work we do for people with dementia at our Mindful Gifts CIC shop, next door but one.
Mindful Gifts CIC Shop now has a decicated vinyl record section so that you can look through your favourites in comfort!
Our 'This is Your Life' Big Red Book has been sent to the Royal Couple so that they can document their memories of their special day tomorrow! Congratulations to the happy couple! Royal Tea Part at our shop tomorrow at 2pm, all welcome!
Wrap Over Aprons
Our vintage style wrap over aprons are just like mother used to wear! If you are going to a 40s event or just fancy something practical to wear at home, these pinnies are perfect. https://tinyurl.com/yb8ptoj — Products shown: Vintage Style Wrap Around Apron- .
Although Mindful Gifts CIC specialises in gift ideas and activities for people with dementia, we actually offer a lot more! Our shop that is set in the past brings back memories for people with dementia. However, set in the past also means vintage and nostalgic and that is interesting to everyone. When local filmakers wanted to shoot scenes for their 1970s film , we were more than happy to step in and offer our living room where customers normally have tea and cakes. We have loaned out items before for theatres so for films is just the next progressive step for us. Better still when we were asked to be extras in the film, it was anothe rstring to our bow.
We’ve put on Peaky Blinders and Titanic events before, so our costume wardrobe and props is really growing now. So how does all of this fit in with activities for people with dementia? Well ‘reminiscence’ and fun is the key factor. Remembering the past in different ways is beneficial to people with dementia and how you do that can be fun and very enjoyable!
