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.

Childhood Memories of Wartime

Inspired by The Francis Frith Collection, a nationally important archive of historical photographs recording the people and places of Britain between 1860 and 1970, this book showcases some of the best anecdotes about life in Britain during and just after the Second World War that have been contributed to the Share Your Memories feature of the Frith website. The result is an absorbing, poignant and sometimes amusing account of life on the Home Front during the war. Amongst the heartwarming stories included in this book are recollections of evacuated children, accounts of how people coped during air-raids, memories of childhood pranks, sweet rationing and pestering American soldiers with “Got any gum, chum?”, and the story of Bradford’s famous defiant puffing pie!
