Love and Spring Fair

Happy Valentines' Day! It's always a pleasure to receive a little token of love from a special someone no matter how modest the gift may be, such as these fragrant tealights from Parlane. We hope love manifests itself in many ways for you today!

At the beginning of February we made our annual pilgrimage to the Spring Fair in Birmingham to see what the new season has to offer. It's always an adventure but can also be pretty exhausting covering the acres of halls! As ever, we saw lots of great gift ideas and placed orders with several of our current suppliers plus a few new ones. Some new stock has already arrived with more to follow and we hope you'll like what you see. The photograph above includes new jewellery from Equilibrium, ladies lightweight scarf, cosmetic purse and a trio of votive candles, all new in. Also featured are soaps from Heyland & Whittle, handcream from Berkeley Square Cosmetics, a small creamware dish and a sterling silver pendant from JSK Jewellery.

New pens have arrived from Autograph. We have an attractive mix of ballpoints and rollerball pens, of which these are just three, all appropriately boxed and ranging in price from £10 to £30. We also have a selection of gents cuff links and keys rings too.

A few new pieces of furniture from Pacific Lifestyle have also helped to give the shop layout a new look. This mango wood wall unit and triangular table are in 'vintage sand' colour and can be ordered in other finishes.

or how about this traditional wicker chair which always makes a handy extra seat anywhere in the home?

Arriving any day now is this beautiful new candle range from Wax Lyrical (based in the Lake District) in collaboration with Fired Earth. The five tea fragrances are based on Fired Earth paint colours with names such as Chamomile & Violet and Red Emperor Tea. The range also includes reed diffusers.

With plenty to spike your interest we hope you'll be able to call into the shop soon and we look forward to seeing you.
