Easter Bunnies

Easter bunnies come in many shapes and sizes…..

Suck and Chew

Our friends at Suck and Chew have just launched their online shop. If you can’t make it over to Columbia Road, they can now deliver direct to you, and they claim to personally test everything they sell….We’re tempted by the toffee tins – yum!


This week we’ve been sampling treats from our neighbour Aesop and highly recommend this balm for hands… and feet! They keep a sample pot by the door – make sure you give it a go if you make it over to Redchurch Street this weekend – there are plenty more treats in-store too.

Another Owl

… this time for a finger! Our jewellery collection is growing, for details enquire here and watch this space for new designs…

Saving For Summer

Hoots is our ceramic moneybox owl. At £20 he’s a great gift for you or for a friend – available here.
