May

Wishing every one a very happy first of May! A day to wish happiness to all.  The tradition is to bring a lovely little bouquet to your nearest and dearest. It’s one of our favourite French traditions.

We are also getting ready to celebrate Mother’s Day and the place of Mothers in our lives. Whilst our great baskets are not the only for woman, they do make up the largest part of our client base. A basket is just the most perfect accessory in every womens life. From our classic baskets, round and rectangle baskets  to the blings we have got you covered.

December is almost upon us, there are plenty of Christmas and festive markets and events ahead. We are having our 2 duck pop up shop from 21st December. Our best Christmas present this year will be the arrival of our baskets towards the end of December – a bit late but at least they are on their way. We can’t wait to have all our favourite back in stock plus some new ones!
