Off to France

Time for our annual pilgrimage to France.  This little house needs some more love and attention. We are back from France mid July but all our online sales are still operational in our absence. We will be collecting more vintage linen and checking out all the latest trends. Follow us on Instagram for our adventures.

May

muguet 2

Every where in France in May is the mois du Muguet – the festival of the Lily of the Valley. It heralds the beginning of spring and is one of my favourite traditions in France – everyone gives you a bouquet of muguet as gift of good luck. We will be in France from mid June for a few weeks and and so look forward to getting back in touch with these charming traditions.

Free shipping  – reminder that our offer of free shipping on baskets goes until this Friday 6th May.

Website – we are continuing our revamp of the website and will be bringing more products – the St James tee shirts and our lovely linens. Keep checking back to see what is new.

2 duck for March

After the busyness of February and the trade fair we are back to our markets and planning for events and preparing for our next shipment.

Basket of the Month

Rustic Long handled basket

The baskets with leather trim and thick comfy handles are amongst the strongest and most durable in our range. This basket adds rustic charm to the classic style. Woven in the rarer dwarf palm tree leaf it has a rougher and more raw look. Made in the western part of Morocco nearer the coast it reflects the traditions of that area. This and all our baskets available on the buy basket online page – buy baskets
