New lovely stuff for your viewing (and buying!) pleasure!

We've got a new design in the shop from J.C.Middlebrook, inspired by a recent trip to Morrocco (Jealous!) ... Anne Symond has added to the jewellery we stock with some fabulously tactile perspex bracelets, and Smashing Chintz have rejuvinated our walls with their colourful mosaics. We've also got a brand new ceramic collection from Jade Devall, which epitomises 'charming illustrated kitchenware'... And Louise Dawn Wilson has adorned one of our shelves with a menagerie of wire objects and characters!

Plus, in the spirit of preparation for the Lace:here:now season, here's a reminder about Stella Corrall's wonderful (wipe-clean!) encapsulated lace place settings, which would make even a TV dinner stylish!
