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.

Cookery Demonstrations At Electricity House - a Memory of Willesden.

Do you remember Electricity House, just to the right of the picture?  In the late 50s when I was about 8ish I guess,  Mum used to take me to the cookery demonstrations held there.  They were in the afternoon and they were free.  There was a special room with a stage and a cooker on it and table and that is where the demonstrator worked.  The audience were seated in front of her and we watched the latest modern equipment on display as the food was prepared.  Afterwards, Mum and I would  walk around the showroom displaying all the latest electric cookers.  Nice memories

I was born at Park royal Hospital in 1947 and lived above Posners the sweet shop on willesden High street. I remember the electric house very well, as my mother used to take me there, we used to sit on the benches outside and I used to play with my dolls pram and also meet with a friend called Yvonne Wales who I have lost touch with.
