Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Caption for Edinburgh, The Castle From The Grassmarket 1897: The site of the Marquis of Montrose's execution was not here, but at the Mercat Cross in the High Street. Having been declared a traitor in 1644, Montrose was not given the benefit of a trial. After hanging for three hours, his body was taken down and quartered. His head was set upon the tolbooth, and his limbs were sent for public display on the gates of Stirling, Glasgow, Perth and Aberdeen. In 1661, Montrose was allowed a state burial.

A very desirable place to live. The church in the picture is actually at the far end of Telfords Dean Bridge which is not visible in (...Read full memory)

This is the view from Telfords Dean Bridge looking towards Stockbridge. The Water of Leith is just visible, having just flowed through Dean Village (on the 'other side of the picture', behind the photographer. There is a path from Dean Village to Stockbridge along the bank of the Water of Leith. When I lived here (~1976-2003). (...Read full memory)

This is where my husand John Tuff grew up. I'm going to buy this picture for John as John now has Alzheimer's disease and when he sees this picture it will bring back some of his memory as a boy. John played as a boy by this castle and he told me about when a German plane crashed by the castle and how John and his pals got chased by the police and home guard.
