We are presently moving into new offices in Pipperall Way, Haverhill
it has been quite hectic and very cold but we are getting there.
This means we will be able to open on special SALE days to meet you all
and you will be able to grab a bargain.

Anne has been busy working on many projects at the moment. One of which is this dear little recycled crochet scarf. Vintage crochet squares were reworked to make this on trend accessory. If you have any craft projects to share send us a picture and we'll add it to our up coming readers creative feature.

We love to hear from you :-

Had to send a quick note to thank you for my vintage fabric order that arrived this morning it must have been processed immediately - as I got my goodies in no time at all! Everything was exactly as on website and the fabrics are wonderful. I have got a great selection in different colours and patterns, for less than a piece of 1 design.
I will keep looking for new additions, but in the mean time I am off to play with my new stash.
Thanks again for your professional service.

Just right for autumn and walking your dog.

These glitzy gloves were hand knitted from our patterns
and jazzed up with buttons and beads.

Silk Screen Printing

Positive Feedback

We have had some lovely feedback from customers recently.
Here are just a few of their kind thoughts.

"Just to say thank you for the gorgeous fabric - it worked wonderfully on the lid of a sewing basket I was restoring for a customer. The patchwork pieces were to be an alternative solution, but not needed in the end.
One thing - I ordered only one piece but there were two in the package. If this was an 'extra' then thank you so much.
If it was by mistake then please just let me know.
Will be using the site many times in the future!
Take care,"

"I don't know if you are interested in feedback from your customers, but here goes!
I am always a little anxious when I purchase from a website for the first time because you never know ...?
Anyway, I was delighted with my purchases which arrived today. I appreciate the prompt delivery AND the lack of a postage charge which I find most refreshing. The fabric was lovely - I was glad you sent two large pieces of the "Opio" instead of four smaller pieces. I loved the lace oddments (I'm a bit of a lace fanatic!) they were gorgeous and the icing on the whole package. Thanks very much and I shall probably be back for more!

The Sponsored Walk

Hazel, Ash and the Little Emperor recently took part in a charity walk to raise funds for the local school PFTA. In short it was freezing, windy, muddy and The Little Emperor had to be carried for most of the 3 mile(which felt like 10!) trek around the village farm fields of Harston, South Cambridgeshire.
Rain that fell that week and logged on the field froze so hard you could have skated on it!

The sun did come out to play but we didn't feel any of the rays because of the icy breeze coming from Norway.
After the walk back at school HQ, we supped hot chocolate and feasted on scalding soup and delicious jacket potatoes, cakes and treats. Yummy! Hopefully lots of money will be collected by the walkers to be used for funding for the school.

Sorry once again for our lateness in posting recently. We have been so busy in the shop with our New Year sale that the blog has become rather neglected, but fear not! We are back!

We have just been to the Birmingham trade show looking for new goodies and ideas. We found a good new supplier of vintage style goods, who we are hoping to deal with in the future.

We have added a new page on Facebook, where we will be featuring hints, tips and advice on all things vintage. Take a gander here.

We were once again pleased to be in Country Homes and Interiors (March Issue- Sweet Memories), please have a look for us if you have the magazine.

We trust you all had a wonderful New Year and were not trapped in all the snow and bad weather. Hazel will be posting some of our snow pics soon.
