Since Bertie came along I am not in the shop as much as I used to be. But I don’t think I am ever not working , well, that’s if you can call it work as it certainly doesn’t feel like work sometimes! I really don’t think I ever switch off and am constantly on the prowl wherever I go for inspiration and display ideas!
One of my favourite things to do when I am not in the shop is visit auction houses, markets, country shows and antiques fairs. After all, it was at Newark Antiques fair that I came across a stack of old deckchairs that needed restoring and so the deckchair hire business was born!
Not only do I find hidden treasure and unusual items to use for display and also sell in the shop but I also get sub conciously inspired without even realising!
I spotted these amazing metal stars under a pile of allsorts when I was at a fair at the beginning of the year and thought they would make a great Christmas window display!
I think it was from this discovery that my star theme was born! As Christmas stock is arriving each day and I am unpacking lots of new products it has certainly become apparent that the star theme is a trend in the shop this year.
We are fully stocked and ready for the festive period with star bags, star purses, star jewellery, star decorations and even star blankets for your little star!
Check out some of our starry products here or pop into the shop and have a look at our Christmas star display!
