Midsummer Nights

by Andrew Williams | June 17, 2015

It seems incredible that we will see the longest day this week - with the weather in Hay not exactly tropical today! Hopefully we will get some warmer weather as we move in to July and August. It's a nice moment to reflect on what we've achieved so far this year, and look forward to what the rest of 2015 has in store. 

We began the year with a bang, visiting Mata Traders and Refugee Beads in Atlanta, and our friends at IAO in Oaxaca, before meeting Fabrica Social in Mexico City. Through the year we have continued to add new suppliers, notably the amazing What Daisy Did (available on line soon), as well as receiving new deliveries from Ocean Sole, Sudsatorium, Zotter and Craftworks Cambodia

The big news is that next month we are moving to a bigger location in Hay, in the heart of town at Lion Street. If you've visited Hay and popped in to shops such as Booths, Hay Deli or Bartrums you'll know exactly where we are. With roughly 50% more floor space, a central location, and (crucially!) lovely big windows, we can't wait to welcome you to our new shop. 

Until then we'll be celebrating midsummer by DJing at the second Mallyfest this Saturday at Baskerville Hall - hope to see you there to support a great cause! Happy Midsummer to you all.
