Hey! Pure new wool all the way from Germany

Last year we discovered the wonderful Michael Hoff and his felt products at Hey Sign, in Germany. The pure new wool used to create the products is so sumptuous, whenever the new stock of 'Carry' bags come through the door we all immediately add one to our mental wish lists! We have up dated the collection of alphabet key rings, more colours and more letters. And as an added extra this year we have opted for the cute Christmas tree decorations too. Perfect additions to your bauble collections. Contact ruth@elladoran.co.uk for prices and available colours.

Paper gifts - perfect for posting!

Last Friday saw lots of new deliveries coming into the shop - great fun unpacking it all! The next few posts will be updating you all everything new, with plenty of perfect presents just in time for Christmas. First up are the amazing paper products; Sunography paper and fabric enables you to create your own artwork using only the power of the sun, the 'Make London' postcard enables you to build your own mini stereotypical London and the fabulous Sharan pin hole cameras bring back the element of magic to photography. For prices and more information please contact ruth@elladoran.co.uk

Friday Featured - Friday Fave!

Sorry for the delay in getting the Friday Featured to you this week (or last week), we are blaming the excellent (in the most sarcastic term of the word) internet connection and its superior ability of disappearing when you need it most.
Anyway we wanted to let you know that our friends at mydeco have posted a lovely article about our Grand Designs win on their blog, click here for the full story.
