Autumn 2014 new display and suppliers

As the weather is gradually getting cooler after a pretty good summer thoughts turn to warmer clothing and cosy, inviting interiors.

We have a new window display which reflects the more subtle colours of Autumn - conker, graphite and lime together with textures of wood and wool. There are various small sheep dotted around the shop plus some gorgeous hand knitted 100% wool bobble hats.

We have some warm and chic new hand knitted scarves in many colours as well as fingerless gloves to ease us into winter.
As the football season is now well under way we have some City Ground and Meadow Lane signs by Relick Designs, plus some inventive coat hooks made from cricket balls.

There are some delightful framed collages ( made using vintage bus tickets ) of people standing at bus stops which are a must for any nostalgic bus travellers. The attention to detail is amazing.

We now stock a range of locally made sauces - some of which are perfect with your Sunday lunch, others sweet and comforting and some others with chilli -if you like it hot! Our personal favourite is the Nottinghamshire sauce. 

Other goodies in the shop include handmade lamp shades using vintage fabric from Alibeewares, some amazing decoupaged mannequins which are also lit up from inside and cuff links made with genuine vintage typewriter keys.

New in the shop last week is a selection of cyanotype prints by Eternal Hope.
We have a selection of framed and mounted prints many of which include vintage Nottingham lace and flowers and leaves from the artist's own garden.
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

On Wednesday 1st October it's Goose Fair and 4th & 5th October Kylie comes to the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham with her Kiss Me Once Tour.
