Come celebrate HALLOWEEN with us this Friday the 31st of October. We'll be welcoming all you little goblins and ghost-ies with sweet treats!

Check out our scary skull and cross bones cup cake cases and doilies!

Gift idea number 1!

We all know that some ladies can be tricky when it comes to getting them the perfect gift!That's why we'll be posting "gift ideas" on a weekly basis to hopefully inspire and help you find that perfect something for someone special.
This week we're showcasing:
"Shrieking Violet" ,a local company offering original sterling silver jewellery made with real flowers inset into acrylic cabochons. We think they're very fab! Who wouldn't love them?
They are truly sweet and we know that the price will also hit the mark! From £12.95 to £30.00.

New products and designs added to the shop through out Autumn and Winter for the run up to Christmas. Why fight the crowds in town when you can get all your Christmas shopping here in a relaxing, friendly local shop?

Autumn Exhibition

Exhibition date: starts 17th October on through out Autumn
All welcome. Free event. venue: Beautiful Interiors.

As part of a vibrant and artistically diverse community Penny Fielding
has showcased numerous works by local artists and has gone on to establish her shop
as an integral part of the local community acting as a sponsor for up coming artists and crafts people.
This Autumn Anssi Sojakka, Paul Robinson and Paul Tucker showcase their work in the shop gallery.

Anssi Sojakka: "I experiment in order to keep my work alive and interesting for me, suprise me even...
I use objects, such as chains as templates.
The shapes and outlines of the objects merge with the other objects around them creating a landscape of shapes and forms."

Paul Robinson: The artist has appropriated genuine British Army Disruptive Pattern Material.
The colour characteristics of the material have been carefully painted out, leaving only traces of its original survival function.
A transformation has occurred turning something that is uniform and institutional into something that is inspiring and playful.

Paul Tucker:‘Bronte’ is a house in Leiston Suffolk and is the subject of a photographic exhibition by Paul Tucker.
It started as a document of a house, whose owner, Agnes Deller, was moving on after 33 years.
The house, its character and contents have a unique quality. In the eventual series of photographs, the interiors and their objects
have a strong sense of identity and evoke memories of past lives. These are intimate portrayals of a time and place through light and colour.
