The start of Autumn deliveries

My son has gone off to university in Nottingham which means I’ve lost my resident technical help. My posts could become even more erratic !! On the other hand … because I’m spending less time picking up wet towels and dirty coffee cups I will have more time to devote to the blog. I might actually start to enjoy it.

We are starting to get our Autumn / Christmas deliveries which I’m excited about despite the fact that the temperature is shooting through the roof. A new range of silk scarves from Salt have arrived. They are light enough to wear now but their autumnal hues and subtle textures will work through the autumn and winter. Wallace Sewell and Katie Mawson scarves are also on their way so should hopefully arrive as the weather changes. At the moment we have Alice Pattullo and John Dilnot’s work in the window. Alice has expanded her range of prints and John has brought in some larger boxes and added a couple more designs to his cards so do come and look. Next week we will have Mark Greco’s work I will give more information about him when it arrives. Lots more will arrive over the next three months.

We’ve had Kirsty Kirkpatrick’s work for a few weeks. The brightly coloured abstract shapes combined with the various textures of vintage chain make for charming bracelets and necklaces. The intricate lazer cut patterns on the wood contrast with the chain, the faceted plastic beads finish them off perfectly. They have a 60’s feel… Mary Quant with a twist?

Kirsty Kirkpatrick Prices start £19.95

Yesterday we had a delivery of crochet slippers from Ruby Brown. They have a handmade aesthetic combined with practicality. There are three colour way’s tea, red and midnight. They have a fleecy lining, a beautiful three dimensional rose on the front and a rubber sole. What more could you ask!! Perfect for snuggling up in front of the fire.

Ruby Brown Price £29.95

Eleanor’s Attic make pvc coated cotton bags that work well worn across the body. The bands of spots and flowers in a multitude of colours complement each other perfectly. Each bag has a printed cotton lining and a broad strap in a contrast colour. All in all a breath of fresh air on a drizzly autumn day. We are also getting a smaller version for those of you that like to travel light.

Eleanor’s Attic Price large £43.95
