Busiest Saturday in a long while! Thanks for swinging by everyone that did, despite the rain! First moment we've had to post today. I mean there's still 2 crumpets in the toaster, been there since 10am. They've gone a bit hard! . Anyways, 🦓🦒🐘 more exciting news than that is... **NEW ARTIST** Chris Millard @chris.millard.creative swing by with his amazing cushions! They look blooming fab in store and have received lots of love already! . Chris is a Brighton based freelance illustrator and designer specialising in Wedding Stationery, Pet Portraits & bespoke gifts. He also sells a range of animal prints, gifts, and greetings cards online through Etsy and at local craft fairs and makers markets. . Go check out his work! Here, his website or in store! . Mind you, specially enjoyed a surprise visit from our Northern treasure @antibland accompanied with some delicious lemon drizzle shortbread, nearly as delicious as her 💛

*********************** CALLING ALL TEENS! *********************** We are doing the last call on the Teen Clothes Swap 14-17yrs over the weekend. Sadly, despite lots of interest we've not had enough commitment to run it. . We are wondering why? . So, in a bid to really try to run the swap for the teens, to show them how great swapping your unwanted clothes is we've decided to make it a FREE event! . If you've brought a ticket it will be refunded, you will still need to book on Eventbrite so we can see if we have enough numbers but YES, we are making it FREE! . We can't try harder than that? Perhaps all our adult clothes swappers could share/ comment on how great they are? And can we ask if anyone works or is involved with local secondary schools they can share too... . Here's hoping this works ♥️
✨✨The lovely @ada_binks, who has been with us since DAY 1 of opening is doing a COMPLETE re-stock & switcheroo tomorrow. Loads of new designs that will sparkle your pants off✨✨
