Summer is nearly here, and what better way to make the most of it than by attracting birds to your garden with the Small Green Co’s Mr and Mrs Birdee bird boxes. Available to buy on our shop, they are eco-friendly, flat-packed, and easy to put together.

– Roast Designs have launched two new chandelier designs – Cascade, and Opus, created from hand-blown glass spheres and hundreds of glass and crystal beads. Roast Designs recently had an article written about their work in the FT supplement, How to Spend It, which you can read here.

The creator,         Gabi Bolton, has launched a new range of satchels and travel bags, which are designed and handmade in Norfolk and feature her own highly individual prints. She’ll be exhibiting at Pulse in the Launchpad area from the 5-7 June.
