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.

Trying To Find Old Friends - a Memory of Willesden.

My name is John Power, Waterford City. I lived on Harlesden Road, Willesden from 1965 to 1968 and then returned to Ireland. In that space of time I made some great friends and one family in particular who were named Roche from Kerry. There were at least 6 men and 2 girls in the family. One girl was married and had a family in Willesden and the youngest girl came to Willesden in 1966/7 after finishing school in Ireland. One of the names who was a good friend was named Eddie. We did our socialising in The Rising Sun Pub where we had good times. I am visiting London in September 2011 and would like to contact any of the family. I know it is not much to go on as I do not know how to go about this I would appreciate any help with the matter.
