We're really pleased to have another great range of winter woollens from Here Today Here Tomorrow. Last year our bestsellers were their knitted headbands with velvet lining and they are back for 2013/14! We have three new styles - a charcoal block print design in a traditional style, and a new knot design available in burgundy or navy. We only have limited stock of each design and once they're gone we're unlikely to get more stock. Don't miss out on these cosy, fair trade favourites.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to break the bad news to you - we've just had our first delivery of winter woollens. Yes, it is that time of year again. We're really pleased to be stocking the new season's designs from Here Today Here Tomorrow, who proved so popular with the residents of Hay (and online) last year. We love the new slouchy hats, mini mittens and of course their amazing woolly headbands. Look out for them online in the next few days - they're available in store now.
But before we get on to winter, and the dreaded "C" word, let's try to bask in the last few rays of our fair trade summer. We still have the great new range from Rapanui to drool over (and everyone always needs tee shirts, right?) as well as ongoing reductions on some of our most popular ceramic lines - our eye catching Line Vases are now just £22 online.
Other new arrivals include our amazing, colourful bamboo chopping boards, designed by Bambu Home in Portland Oregon and made under fair trade conditions in China. A versatile, sustainable addition to any kitchen. We'll have more of the range coming soon.
Let's not get too down-hearted at the darker nights drawing in, we still have lots of fun to look forward to - Halloween and some cool new lines to tie in with the Mexican "Day of the Dead" celebrations to name just one. Stay warm out there!
The festival season will soon be upon us! We're looking forward to the excellent Green Man Festival just down the road from Hay in Crickhowell. If you're off to spend a weekend listening to good music in a field somewhere, here are some great fair trade items that might come in handy!
