Hello one and all. Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet of late, no excuses at all just enjoying the sunshine on my roof! Right to business then what has been going on inside my walls? A few changes, moves, new arrivals have been happening or are about to happen. Artistitch Design has joined us in the cubby holes downstairs and we’ll just wow! You should see the work that goes into her lovely handmade goods. Well worth a peep folks. Superb presents too if you’re looking for something unique.

Sugar Hill are going to be taking on a larger space in August so she will be moving from her shelf under Tangled Vine the candles to by the window upstairs. We are so excited to be getting some more beautifully restored furniture in.

The Outhouse in amongst the minor issue of getting married moved into a larger space just before the ceremony! Cheeky monkey then went on honeymoon and the girls sold his stock!

Vintage Daisy moved in downstairs with her lovely mix of vintage style and true vintage goodies. Proving very popular too and so beautifully displayed. She also has her own place – The Little Grey Shepherds Hut at The Yards in Kettering so do pop over for a shop.

Nicholas & Steele restock most weeks in their fabulous back room but beware they seem to bring a tonne of rain with them lol! The girls tell me it’s well worth following them on Instagram and Facebook as they sometimes have table top sales of all their gorgeousness.

Mercer & Rose are now in place in our cubbyholes and again it’s all just sooooo beautiful. Pop in and take a gander.

Mr Pip Goes Solo is taking over the gents clothing upstairs in August and promises us tweed jackets including Burberry and Harris Tweed, hats from flat caps to top hats, braces, ties, cravats and more. Watch this space.

We have a few more new businesses in the pipeline too so keep an eye on the girls Facebook and Instagram pages. Remember you can tweet them too (personally I thought that was just up to the pigeons on my roof but hey ho!?!!!)

Lastly I’ve realised not everyone knows that the emporium is actually made up of over 30 different, independent small businesses all trading under the same roof. So when you support us you are supporting a number of people in the local community. The girls have put links on the website to the different businesses so it’s well worth a click to find out who makes No.38 so special. Ta ra for now folks…….

Charlotte Donovan Ilustrations

RIght folks I’m still going through my downstairs list of traders at the mo, the pesky blighters keep trying to confuse me by moving around my insides but next up is Charlotte Donovan Illustrations, who moved downstairs recently.

Shelf
Charlottes Birds

Charlotte is an illustrator living in a small village very local to me on the edge of Milton Keynes. Charlotte graduated from the University College of Birmingham and she now illustrates full time.

Charlotte gets her inspiration from the wonderful variety of birds that visit her garden throughout the year. So she decided to pick up her paint brushes and pencils, and created her first collection of illustrations, the ‘British Garden Birds’ series, these can be found on my shelves downstairs.

Charlotte describes her illustrations as whimsical and playful and her two biggest influences are the illustrations of Beatrix Potter and Andy Warhol’s early ink drawings.

Charlotte also has her work in the fabulous Afterglow in Olney. A must do visit I am reliably told by Pip and the gang.

Most recently her work has been featured and reviewed in the online arts and culture magazine “The Sublime”. All in all Charlotte is one very talented little lady and we, that’s the girls and I, are delighted that she chose us as a place to showcase and sell her illustrations from.
