Coronavirus: We would like to thank our customers for continued support in these difficult times. We are a web based company operating in a rural area, so our staff travel to work by car individually and both in our office & factory we have enough room to maintain social distancing. As such and in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless or until 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.

Products temporarily unavailable: Folded Maps, Tableware (Coasters & Placemats), Jigsaws, Wallpaper.

Dispatch times may vary from those quoted. We will update this message as anything changes.

County Fur Co. Peter Street - a Memory of Yeovil.

Does anyone remember the fur shop in Peter Street owned by a Mr Jack Berry? He was a furrier and made coats, hats, gloves etc! He was Jewish and used to drink in the Mermaid. The shop is long gone, sadly, as are lots of Yeovil's shops! Perhaps this will jog someone's memory, I hope so. Looking forward to any memories. Many thanks

Hi Janet, I don't remember the shop but I do know of Jack Berry. He married or lived with Eliza Feltham (known as Ciss) she was adopted by my great grandfather Walter Feltham. How funny is this. Sue
