 CHRISTMAS 2020 GIFTING CATALOGUE

We've put together a selection of some of our most popular Christmas gifts, for browsing and pre-ordering to take the stress out of Christmas shopping! 

Our Christmas collection will go live on our online store closer to Christmas, but in the mean time, if you would like to discuss your Christmas gifting with us, please don't hesitate to contact us, and we can work together to help you treat your staff, colleagues, family or friends to a luxurious Josophan's Christmas!

 

NEW STORE ... WE'VE MOVED!

We are now located across the road, at 187-197 Leura Mall, in the beautiful old Church building next door to our Cafe Madeleine.  Come say HI!

Our phone number will be the same 02 4784 2031, and we've patiently waited 3 weeks for Telstra to transfer it.  Finally, we've been promised it will be connected on Friday 20 December.  Meanwhile, please contact us via email josophansleura@gmail.com 

Check out our new space here:

Local artist creates illustration for our chocolate box notes

We're thrilled to announce the inclusion of a note identifying chocolates in our fine chocolate boxes.  Whilst not every chocolate will be on the note (ie. special editions etc), the regular range and favourites are all included.  All chocolates are identifiable by looking on our website of course.

We have also engaged young local artist Andrina Manon, to create an illustration for the note.  The savvy shopper on her vespa is a reminder to eat your chocolates sooner rather than later, given we don't use preservatives or artificial ingredients in our chocolates. 

Andrina's work can be viewed here:

 'GOLD' Chocolate Bustier Auctioned!

Featured on Channel 7 The morning show, this bustier and mannequin is made entirely of chocolate!  The bustier is made of Gold Salted Caramel Chocolate and the mannequin is made from dark chocolate.  Jodie was inspired by a Jean Paul Gaultier bustier, and has crafted a similar proportioned bustier made entire of chocolate, with the 'wheat' decor as well!  

The bustier was auctioned for the Arty Bra fundraiser, selling for $3000.  The much needed funds will help the local charity Cancer Wellness Support continue to help local Blue Mountains individuals and family who are coping with cancer.
