Window Shopping - June Edition

Most recently at G&J HQ we have been feasting our spirit on a heady mix of late night cups of tea and sumptuous historical melodramas.
Oh, for an endless spring, for fields of fragrant bluebells, waving buds of wheat and unruly up-dos...

New online stockist -!

After courting each other for almost a year now, Leeloo and Ginny & Jude have taken it beyond simple footsies under the table and made it official!

Yep, that's a little bottle opener of ours you have spotted, along with a whole bevy of other handmade beauties... is run by a terrifically delightful woman called Angela, with help from the equally delicious Renee. You will be familiar with them from their sunny appearances outside of the online vortex at various Finders Keepers markets...

And here they are working away at the recent Finders Keepers Markets in by Gary Compton

Leeloo will stock an exclusive selection of pieces from Ginny & Jude - from jewellery to hats to knick-knacks - and you can view the whole selection here!

Ooh, and we thought we should mention this: the ladies of Leeloo want to go to the Hello Etsy conference in Berlin in September
And they need your help to get them there...and with incentives of lovely art and Leeloo goodies, why wouldn't you want to help out?!
Check out their absolutely ADORABLE video they have made to convince you why you should put your money where your mouth is and help them fly fly away:

Happy shopping!

Winter Finders Keepers Markets Wrap-up

Phew, another splendid markets from the lovely ladies at The Finders Keepers has been put to bed for another six months!

Thousands of people on Friday night, oh my!! photo by Gary Compton

It was, as always, quite a blur and flurry of lovely shoppers. Thanks to all of you who popped past and said hello and even purchased a few things - if I was too swamped in a swathe of people to get to you, I apologise!

Our stall was quite the autumnal wonderland thanks to some splendid tinkering from the delicious Kiki from The Flower Store...

For all you trainspotters, that's a very old paperback edition of Anne of Green Gables which we have open!

Our new AW 2011 collection Last Year's Kisses was debuted with great success...from knitted knickers to berets to turbans we were absolutely tickled pink with the positive response from everyone! 

Knitted Knickers - Oooh lala! - and the Steam Train Sweethearts beret.
