As an independent business its important to us to support other local suppliers and artisans. To that end we have an ever expanding offer of artwork, books, greetings cards and other gift products available from some great local people.
If you like honey, then you will love this range of honey from Brightwell Bees, by artisan beekeepers based at Brightwell cum Sotwell, it’s so delicious that it’s flying off the shelves (pun intended).
The beehives are located in the surrounding South Oxfordshire and West Berkshire villages. We stock both set and clear honey and if your quick we also have hand-cut honeycomb which is only available in mid to late summer.
If you are looking for a colourful and intricate piece of artwork for your home, look no further than these incredible prints of original artwork by Fibre Artist, Tracy Smith. Each piece begins with a photograph of a landscape, a park, a beach, or a single flower. A particular favourite of ours is “The Wooden Bridge” which will be familiar to those who walk from Wallingford to Benson alongside the Thames.
Tracy uses a mixture of fibres in her work, primarily dyed merino wool, and places them in fine layers to produce the main image, as if she were painting with them. Further details are added with silks and other wools such as the curly locks of Teeswater sheep.
