What Makes Us So Different?
It's a good question.
And at first glance we probably do look like "just another gift shop".... but we're not! Because unlike a lot of gift shops, the majority of our items are handmade, not just shipped in from some nameless factory overseas. Don't get me wrong, every now and again, I come across something that we just "have to have" because it is too gorgeous to pass up; but on the whole, if we haven't made something ourselves, then we know personally the artisans who have.
I make all our soaps and bath products in my workshop at home. I also make a lot of the knitted items, although the majority are knitted by my Mum, Margaret, who is far superior with a pair of needles than I am!
The inspiration behind our handmade cards comes from family photos of my home in Yorkshire, England, various vacations and also our family pets. The photos are all taken by me or my Mum and each one has fond memories which I hope translate to the finished card.
We have also recently added a range of cards and stationery from Wrendale Designs in the Lake District, England. They feature absolutely adorable hand drawn characters, whose personalities literally shine from the cards - we think you'll love them just as we much as we do!
