Gorse, foraging and preserving
We are very much looking forward to long days out foraging and coming home and preserving our haul. The sight of gorse has us excited for the season of rich pickings from the hedgerows. Read more here.

The Spring edit


We are here to help you find a deep sense of joy in simple things that don't cost the earth.

Our roots lie in design for individuals and indie businesses but recent times have seen us fall down the rabbit hole of being considerate consumers. Our shop is here to make some of our best discoveries available to you.

Share our journey, buy the great things we have found for you, hire us for a design project, above all, say hi!


We're not great with salesy emails, anyway, you already know where our shop is, right?

We like to stay in touch, tell you about great maker finds, what you should be doing to look after your plants, tell you about places we've been. That sort of thing. If you want to you can email us back, we'd like that.

With our old bricks and mortar store we loved chatting to you, our lovely customers. We also loved you talking to each other and wanted a place to continue the conversation online. Plant tips to share? Found a new maker you want to shout about? Talk with other like minded people. We'll even have live discussions with makers and other people of interest from time to time. Continue the conversation over on our community page.
