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.

My Early Childhood - a Memory of Wishaw.

Hi I lived at 44 Millbank Road prob 53till 60/61 when we were rehoused as building was condemned ... our house was downstairs next to a close and I think immediately opposite was another tenement building , but smarter than our, to the right was factory . My maiden name was macmillan , dob 18.06.52.I am the eldest Janice and my bro duncan was 14 months younger . We were downstairs in two rooms and a scullery next to a close we shared outside we tgatcwas on opposite side of close Our younger bro was born July 60 after which we were rehoused . Not sure how soon after that were-housed but prob 61 as a guesstimate ... in front of us was prefabs and to the left was green hill that we played on and occasionally watched dog race .
