Spring in full Swing!

What an exciting week this has been! Who knew that a bit of ‘volcano dust’, as my mother calls it, could cause so much bother? So many people have been stranded, unable to come home or get away, that this news even beat a pending general election! With all this excitement, we almost didn’t notice the delivery of a fresh batch of Jewellery Trees, found at Ninety Nine Gifts. Back by popular demand, the Jewellery Tree is a divine little White metal jewellery stand in the shape of a pretty tree with three little birds perched in it. Your earrings, necklaces and bracelets will look wonderful festooned in this little tree and it'll stop them all getting tangled in a box!

Ninety Nine Gifts

These Jewellery Trees have always been extremely popular and the good news is that they are now back in stock! Perfect as a gift or even just to treat yourself......why not?!

Steptoes Antiques

There are plenty of shiny new Vintage Brooches at Steptoes Dog Antiques, including this very pretty 1930s Crescent Moon Diamante Rhinestone Brooch. Simple and eye-catching, would enhance any outfit this spring.

Longer Days and More Sunshine......We Hope.

The clocks have gone forward and we are all feeling the benefit of longer days and more sunshine. As ever we have been promised a BBQ summer, but this year I have faith in the weather man and have already broken out the Flip Flops! Things have been busy here and we are all very excited about a bundle of Antique and Vintage Cameras new to our Housewares Department, some snazzy Lucite Bangles in every colour under the sun and some pretty Antique Belt Buckles, guaranteed to add a touch of class to any outfit this Spring.

Steptoes Dog

Nudes and pastel shades are all the rage at the moment and don’t show any signs of budging from our High Street this season. The good thing about this trend is that anyone can make it work just by customising your accessorise, and our Lucite Bangles are just the ticket!

Ninety Nine Gifts

The very talented Claire Murphy designs and makes beutiful jewellery from fabric waste and vintage and antique buttons. Each piece is unique and handmade here in the UK by Claire, so they are very eco-friendly and ethical so make a statement with a chunky button necklace.
