Love is in the air......

A New Year means a fresh start…. we anticipate our existing makers developing more fabulous ideas and to receiving exciting, innovative work from new designers…lots to look forward to ! !

At the moment we are concentrating on Valentine’s Day so heart images appear on cards, textiles and in jewellery, pink and red are the colours of choice. Here is a selection of what we have in store do come and check out our windows to get an idea of the wide choice we have. Don’t worry if you want to make a more alternative gesture of romance, we have lots of tokens that will fit the bill.

Thank you again for making Christmas such a success for our makers. I wish all our customers a very Happy New Year !!


Eleanor Taylor’s delightful range of hand painted cards for Valentine’s Day are an alternative to the usual fare. Inspired by the darker side of the fairy tale, they are a modern interpretation of the painted Victorian Valentine card, something to treasure.

My favourite design is the ‘foxy couple’ dancing.

Price £4.95

Anna Tilson’s mosaic hearts are a perfect Valentine’s gift a selection of colours and the different combinations of crockery make each one unique. I think they would make a lovely wedding present too.

Price £29.95

The new Bee Keeper design from Lush comes in a cushion and a tablecloth. The yellow/pink colour way is fresh for spring and makes a pretty Valentine’s gift. We also have the red fox and cubs cushion which is always a Valentine’s favourite.

Prices start £31.95

Hannah Turner’s Owl teapot and jugs are fun. I like the strong the design and how she has incorporated the shape of the jug into the beak of the design. Tea making will become even more of a pleasure when using this crockery !

Prices start £15.95

Poppy Treffry’s heart and dog badges make are an inexpensive love token. The cream spot on red is jolly and makes a splash of colour on a jacket.

Price £5.95


We have had a delivery of Margo Selby scarves the new colours are rich and vibrant. Colours range from monochrome through soft pink and strong red, shades of green to vibrant orange and lemon.
These scarves make a strong statement but are easy to wear with any colour. Something you’ll wear for ever, a real investment piece.
