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.

Margery Dickens - a Memory of Wibtoft.

Margery Dickens was one of five children who were born in Wibtoft in the 1920s, she went to Little Claybrooke school, she walked every day and was expected to collect wood on the way home. She came from a very poor family, she shared a pair of boots with her elder brother Reg. She told us as children that one of the Stanhope family kept a donkey in their house which frightened the postman (fancy opening the letterbox to a donkey's face). The ghost of one of the Stanhope family still haughts the A5, it's said he can be seen crossing on a foggy night.
