We’ve always loved being creative and upcycling things. We’ve run our own businesses for many years in web design and as a food and drinks producer. After selling and attending lots of food festivals and craft events over that time, we’ve seen lots of great ideas, found loads of interesting items we’ve bought to do something with later on, but never have done so.
So having a creative and retail background we decided to combine our love of making new and interesting items for you. We’ve sourced items which have been pre-loved but now no longer wanted or items which were due for landfill and to be thrown away – all have been lovingly restored, hand stitched, re-polished or spruced up with a new purpose and lease of life. Our own handmade items are unique, some still with a few signs of age plus wear and tear but all are lovely and made to be reused and re-loved.
We also showcase a hugely talented bunch of small scale UK designers, local independent artists and craftspeople, who make fabulous items using sustainable methods, or eco packaging and innovative techniques. We want this online shop to have beautiful, creative gifts and homeware that you feel proud to own.
We hope you love our items as much we do and admire all the extremely talented people who create beautiful things to make you smile.
