We have been quiet for a little while but we have had some exciting new developments!
At the end of April we attended the Spring Country Living fair at Alexandra Palace. After many hours of lifting and adjusting our antique heavy furniture, and perhaps a few cross words, we were all set up for what was to be a great event.
At all of the fairs that we attend, we have the pleasure of meeting some great businesses who have also ventured out on a dream and an idea.

It was extremely uplifting to see so many people having a day out for just pure enjoyment whilst not worrying about what they looked like!
We have returned to the office with lots of ideas and memories, and cannot wait to share our latest products with you!
