As we are now trying to navigate having the business as well as freelancing in the Live events industry, there is going to be some changes to the way we work and when the shop is open.ย 

To prevent us from constantly printing off new opening hours to stick on the shop, please follow this guide. Generally we aim to have the shop open Wednesday to Saturday 10am-4pm. There are times when we need to open slightly later or close up earlier due to deliveries, posting, collecting materials etc.ย 

Socials are not very good for updating Opening Hours so we always make sure our Google Business IS up to date.


Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we get to grips with this new world we find ourselves in.

A unique commission...
We do love it when we are approached with interesting commissions! Last weeks' was a rather fabulous anniversary gift....a NAPKIN WRAP! Although when I look at the pictures it almost looks like a little waistcoat โค
We love it! Such a unique present for someone's 3rd Wedding Anniversary.
