Well it has been quite a while as you know since we last wrote a blog entry. There have been quite a few changes since then too.

Firstly my cousin Jacqueline has gone on to ventures new after working really hard to help set the business up. She was has taken a position at Jaeger a company she has worked for before. She is now able to have days off, a rare event when running your own business! This enabled her to spend more time with her animals and in her beloved Wales.

I ran the shop on my own for a year but then by an amazing series of events my very good friend Jacqueline (yes another one) has now joined me.

Also in November we opened Shabby Chocolat, a rococo style chocolate boutique above our main shop. A visit is a must for serious chocolate indulgence!

We are still busy as ever, especially with our restored furniture. We now have a fabulous team of restorers working with us to produce some really lovely pieces.
You can view all our furniture on Pinterest along with our handmade crafts and cushions! We have also launched our home styling service. We can transform anything from a single chair to a whole room!

I will be blogging regularly again now, with all the events and news and day to day happenings!
