You can also see the new Bora Hob demonstrated in the showroom – this cooktop extractor draws vapour downward meaning you will no longer need an extractor hood.
New stock at Carvills
New stock at Carvills includes Treaty Jewellery which is handmade in silver plate without the use of irritants such as lead, nickel, or cadmium. The jewellery is particularly suitable for customers who may be allergic to these base metals.
