Cool fair trade headbands to keep you warm

by Andrew Williams | October 30, 2013

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.

Time of the Season

by Andrew Williams | September 21, 2013

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!

Coming soon...

by Andrew Williams | January 13, 2013

It's a bit chilly at the moment up at Hay Castle, so don't forget we currently have up to a third off all our knitwear. There may be snow on the way so stay warm out there! We're taking the opportunity during the quieter weeks at the start of the year to look for loads more interesting and unusual items to stock in time for Spring. We've already got some really beautiful new mango wood pieces which we'll have up on the website soon. Also on the way we have...

...more incredible jewellery from Cambodia, as well as more of our ever popular Elephant Cement accessories;
...more stock from our friends in Mexico - rugs, mirrors, and our spooky yet stylish black clay skulls!
...more clothes including a range of womenswear which will be perfect for the summer;
...Nepalese arts and crafts including some incredible copper pieces;
...some kids toys and playthings to keep our younger ethical superheroes contented. 

We hope to add all of these items online as soon as we get them. And we'll have more offers and discounts for customers, so if you haven't signed up to our mailing list yet, why not join us? Or if you're more socially minded you can like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/18RabbitShop
