Welcome to The Simple Things’ independent shop online
‘‘Summer means eating alfresco. I love packing up a simple picnic to share. Individual scalloped edged brown paper bags from The Original Pop Up Shop are perfect for mini feasts. For gatherings at home I’m looking for some beautiful table linen. Classic washed linen tablecloths, placemats and napkins from The Linen Works are ideal for a relaxed setting. And handmade porcelain Dimple Cups by Linda Bloomfield are just the ticket for serving tea made with mint fresh from the garden.’’
Louise Gorrod, Shopkeeper
BLUE PATTERN PAPERS
Cambridge Imprint is a partnership of three sisters: a painter, a textile artist and a ceramicist. They design a range of paper, stationery, textiles and ceramics. Their fine matte pattern papers work for origami, bookbinding and all manner of other crafts, as well as wrapping.
ULTIMATE BELL TENT
This tent suits your every need, whether it’s a glamping trip or simply a garden party. The ‘Strawberries and Cream’ stripes stand out from the crowd. But it’s practical, too – the heavy duty canvas is rot and mould treated, the windows have mosquito nets and it has a zipped groundsheet.
Mosami’s Dreamkeeper is inspired by the beautiful Buddhist prayer wheels that contain mantra scrolls. Write your dreams or aims onto the tiny paper scroll concealed inside Dreamkeeper and wear as a reminder to direct your daily journey towards your dreams.
Artist/illustrator Susie West has created a collection of framed prints celebrating the places we live or love to visit, with a nod to the nostalgic travel posters of the past. Susie also creates prints of houses, streets and shop-fronts which would make a thoughtful, individual gift.
Lou Hopper showcases talented designers, hand-making home furnishings, bags and clothing. This bag is ideal as hand luggage; its exterior pocket would keep passport and tickets handy. The inside is lined, with a useful zip pocket, and it has a detachable canvas shoulder strap.
EMILY PRINT KITCHEN ACCESSORIES
Ulster Weavers offer a unique range of quality textiles in quirky designs, kitchen co-ordinates and thoughtful gifts. This bright, cheerful Emily print was created to bring floral bouquets into the kitchen during summer and brighten up the dullest of winter days.
