  • Sticks & Stones

    Sticks and Stones is a stylish, lifestyle shop wrapped around a cosy and relaxed café alongside the Woodborough Garden Centre, not far from Pewsey. The owners are husband and wife team Garp and Liis Flack. Liis explains the feel of the place, “ I have such a little kitchen at home, this is perfect for me to play house. The style is French farmhouse with Scandinavian touches and very welcoming, I like to see visitors settle by the Aga in the winter and at the outdoor tables in the summer”. The shop has handpicked original and interesting gifts that work just as well in a contemporary London flat or a farmhouse kitchen. There are always new items to discover plus a selection of crockery, cutlery, glassware, linen and Garp’s unique, range of hand-made wooden products for the kitchen, dining room and home. The shop and café spill comfortably into each other so you can still browse the shelves over coffee or a light lunch. Everything on the menu is fresh and seasonal, enjoy asparagus in the spring, Chanterelle mushrooms in the autumn and delicious home made cakes all year round. ...»

  • Digger & Mojo

    Clarissa and Yosh Reilly used to live in Papua New Guinea, where the local motto “expect the unexpected” fits their new vintage furniture emporium in Pewsey very well. Digger and Mojo is a great place for browsing. Here you’ll find a real mix of quirky, fun furniture, and cool 60’s designs amongst more classic and decorative pieces; all chosen for their character and lovingly restored with traditional skills. Clarissa hunts out pieces at auctions, fairs and salvage yards “I always look out for items that have something special to say, and keep a list of things that people have asked us to search for. Some we refurbish to our own designs, and some we keep ready for you to select the colour, finish and fabric that best suits your home.” “There is nothing quite like this between London and Bath, and while our website prices all include shipping to anywhere in the UK, for Wiltshire locals shopping and taking items home themselves from our workshop, we give great discounts. As an example we’ve recently restored a fabulously elaborate Italian mirror. In London it would be over £2000, whereas ours direct from the workshop is just under £500.” ...»

  • Balmain & Balmain

    Balmain and Balmain have been making quality sofas and chairs since 1987 and Henrietta Gillespie now runs the bespoke furniture business, which was started by her parents, from her home in Wilton near Marlborough.  If you’ve ever felt daunted by the large furniture stores where they offer very little flexibility or help, then try settling into one of Henrietta’s own comfy sofas while she guides you through the possibilities.  You decide on the depth, the number of seats and the fabric. Choose from straight back, serpentine spring back, cushion back, inset scroll arms, capped-on -arms, bun-feet, kick-peat skirts, turned legs and many more options.  All the furniture is made in the UK at Balmain and Balmain’s own workshop. The result is top quality, bespoke furniture without the high street overheads.  The big difference with Balmain and Balmain” says Henrietta “ is that you view the possibilities in a home environment and have my undivided attention. There are plenty of examples on show to give you ideas, but nothing is fixed. Every piece we make is unique”.   ...»

  • Fioriblu

    Fioriblu is a partnership of two Italian-speaking Scots, Rachel and Henrietta who met while studying Italian more than 25 years ago. Returning to Italy on holiday more recently, they were inspired by the high quality Italian leather bags at really good prices and resolved to create a collection for UK customers.  Rachel now sells Fioriblu from Avebury where she lives with her family but she and Henrietta make regular trips to Italy to seek out new sources, explore design ideas and ensure their high standards are maintained. "Speaking Italian is a great help” says Rachel" the Italian artisans seem quite charmed by two Scottish women who can do business with them in their own language."  The collection has evolved to comprise everyday and travel bags, a couture collection and more recently, belts, wallets and gloves. The style is classic with subtle design twists. Each piece has something a little different, such as bold colours, unusual hooks, a surprising lining or extra length on the gloves.    “We are really proud of our quality Italian leather collection and because we only sell through our website, charity fairs, and other events we can pass on great prices to our customers." ...»

  • Meadow in my garden

    Childhood memories of running around in colourful wild meadows are often the most treasured, but sadly meadows are in decline along with our wildlife. Paul and Lesley have created flower meadow mixes that encourage wildlife & pollinators to gardens. ‘Nature is in dire trouble and we want to make maintaining the natural order & biodiversity of local environments mainstream. We join up people and businesses interested in nature and improving the environment. We do talks and love working with schools and communities to inspire and help bring about this change’. All their mixtures attract a wide range of pollinators with some serving as an alternative to pesticides. Whether they are best for butterflies, ladybirds or acting against aphids they provide a beautiful and colourful display. Their edible flower collection means there’s plenty of choice for creative chefs. Not just for meadows they thrive best on impoverished land so are great for gardens where there’s more rubble than soil! One customer said ‘For honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies, dragonflies & other creatures it has been heavenly’. They also sell other local products - bee houses and meadow inspired picnic bags, rugs, garden shoes and greeting cards online, at shows and from their new shop in Woodborough. As individuals we can all make a difference, will you? ...»

  • Little Dan Designs

    Despite coming from a family of sewers, Danielle Seatter only discovered the joys of making when her children were at school. Firstly sewing for family and friends, she found it so therapeutic and well received that she set-up Little Dan Designs in 2012. Danielle now makes handmade products from her home in Minety and sells through Etsy and at Cotswold Creative Fairs which she launched in 2016. Her best sellers are her fabric covered noticeboards but other items include sewing craft kits, bunting, aprons, peg bags to name a few. She can make to order, match with colour schemes and fabrics and is particularly proud of her new waterproof beach bags. She’s also recently added crochet to her range. A regular seller at fairs she identified an opportunity to create community fairs that give local groups an outlet for fundraising, while providing crafters a place to showcase and sell their wares to locals, and Cotswold Creative Fairs was borne. Mostly North Wiltshire, they’ve so far been a great success. By involving community groups the word spreads quickly about the fairs and Danielle ensures they are properly marketed. The quality of stalls is kept to a high standard as all sellers have to be proper established businesses. Danielle is also always present with Little Dan Designs and her fabulous range of homewares. ...»

  • Indigo Antiques & Interiors

    Inspired by a love of travel Marion and Richard Lightbown set up Indigo Antiques & Interiors in the early 1970s to introduce beautiful hand crafted Asian furniture to the UK. ‘After meeting in Australia Richard & I returned overland to the UK in a van we bought in Kathmandu. While in Delhi we met a lovely couple whose home was furnished with a fabulous mix of European antiques & Indian pieces. Enthused by what we saw we started importing furniture from Asia, first selling it from a market stall in Camden.’ Since then they’ve had shops in London & Bath – they’ve been at their showroom in Manningford Bruce near Pewsey for 15 years. Brimming with beautifully preserved original painted furniture, they also stock collectibles such as mirrors, Rajasthani bedspreads & handmade paper products. Their shop is an eclectic mix of restored antiques & quirky pieces. ‘We love the original painted furniture from Tibet and Mongolia but that’s high end, so we also sell a more affordable custom made range from China. Like the UK the Chinese use walnut & elm, so the furniture is as comfortable in country homes & cottages as in its native home. Many of the pieces have stunning intricate patterns & our showroom is constantly changing as antiques are so unique’. It’s an unexpected treasure trove that’s a little bit different from the mainstream. Pop in next time you’re passing & you won’t regret it. ...»

  • Charlie Howe Design

    Business Consultant Jenny Holt has always been passionate about design and interiors and had a flair for creative projects. In 2016 she came up with the idea of making household items into lights, so set-up Charlie Howe Design from her home in Urchfont. ‘I use an eclectic mix of everyday items found in kitchens, bars & restaurants, turn them upside down and make them into lights. I’ve made lights from colanders, champagne coolers and Balti dishes. A kitchen shop in Wiltshire has one of my lights made from a teapot and I’ve also used shot glasses and cocktail shakers for customers wanting something smaller.’ The lights are quirky and fun while using quality electrics and fabric covered cables. Her range includes china, copper, glass and stainless steel. Whether installed in a kitchen, restaurant or office they’re a real talking point as people inevitably stop and look at them. ‘The reaction has been incredibly positive and people always comment on how fabulous they are. I also do bespoke commissions and was recently approached to make a light from a large oak box. The box hangs from the ceiling and is hung using heavy chains. It looks fantastic. If you have something old that you think would make a good light or just want something different get in touch. I’d love to help.’ ...»

  • Tate & Darby

    Rugs can make a room and Tate & Darby’s traditionally designed rugs, re-worked in contemporary colours, do just that. Handmade in Morocco and India their wool and jute rugs are not only unique and affordable, but ethically produced by local communities using eco-friendly materials. Bored with what was available in the shops, founders Henny Tate and Kirsty Darby decided to create a collection of their own. With Kirsty’s background in decorative arts, working with some of the world’s best art collections, and Henny’s experience at Graham and Greene and in interior design, their blend of skills make a winning combination. ‘We want our collection to be fun so we use bold colours like pinks, purples or blues. Clients can choose colour and edging and have hints of silver and gold weaved through. Despite many of our wool rugs having a white base they are extremely practical and easy to clean. We’re both mothers and dog owners so extremely conscious of that.’ Available in a range of sizes there are rugs for every room. Whether it’s a runner for the hall, a small rug for bathrooms or bedrooms or a larger one for kitchens, playrooms or drawing rooms there’s something to suit everyone. ‘If you want a specific colour or size just let us know. Likewise, if you’re unsure what to choose send us a room shot and we’ll help advise on the best colour and design. We’re here to help.’ ...»
