More of us!

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!

Grace Face Boutique has been having a sale with her beautiful handmade adult dresses, just a few left if you fancy owning one of the best made dresses around.

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.

image

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.

image

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!?!!!)

image

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…….

Me Again Folks!

It’s me again, No.38 popping by to catch you all up on the latest happenings at the emporium. June has got off to an amazing start for the girls and their traders after a quieter May. The weather seems to affect you lovely lot and you don’t want to pop out to play in the rain! Can’t think why you wouldn’t brave the torrential storms we have had? I stand in it all the time with just my lovely tiled roof for cover!

image

One of the girls has just returned from a well earned family break in the sun so the fabulous Mrs Top Step Antiques stepped in for holiday cover and was working her little socks off. She will defo need a holiday too after her extra days at the emporium. She was buzzing round sorting all you lovely peeps out. It seems you have all been loving the girls window display so much you’ve practically bought it all which meant Mrs Top Step was climbing in and out of the window for you all hehe!

image

I have been noticing some new faces popping in and out of my doors recently it would seem the girls have been joined by several new traders with a few more still in the pipeline. Small Wonders has arrived in our cubby holes and is proving jolly popular too. Her pictures are amazing. All based on the Cornish seaside too, with shells, driftwood, hand stitching etc.

image

Mabels Vintage has taken on a larger area upstairs and again it’s looking wonderful with a mix of something for everyone from furniture to haberdashery, China to crates.

image

Laura Slade Art has just joined us too. A very talented local artist. She can be found to the right of the till as you enter the shop.

Mercer & Rose are set to join us later in the month too.

Knicker Drawer Notebooks have joined us upstairs and the girls tell me that everyone needs to own one of these! Pop in for a gander.

The lovely Utterly Clutterly has taken on a little more space upstairs too. She has spread across onto my window sill upstairs.

Holly Blue Handmade Jewellery has stretched across the haberdashery counter downstairs and has some gorgeous handmade cufflinks and collar stiffeners in, perfect for Father’s Day too.

Grace Face Boutique has had a revamp and we have opened her space up a little more. Mr Pip helped out and bashed a bit of me away!

In all its been a pretty busy start to June. Coffee and cakes are enjoyed on a Friday especially by our adorable postman who pops in for a takeaway! Downstairs had a bit of doing up session and I’ve had a wash and brush up! Anyway enough from me I’m being got ready (terrible grammar sorry folks) to open my doors for a fabulous day ahead. I did hear that some of the lovely people who make my insides what they are today are popping in for a restock so watch the girls Facebook page to see all the new goodies. Toodle pip until next time….

Me Again…..

Hello you lovely people, yes it’s me No.38 as I’m called amongst those who have got to know me and I thought it was time to fill you in with all the happenings inside my solid little walls!

image

First things first I am now soooo cosy. Why? Well the fabulous landlord took pity on the girls and updated the heating. Between you and me it’s taken them a while to suss out the controls but I think they’ve got it now.

image

Ok so enough about the boring bits here’s the gossip. The fabulous Nicholas & Steele are busy as we speak decorating my little back room ready to move their goodies in. I have had a sneaky peek and boy is it going to be good. Naughty Mrs Nicholas & Steele keeps selling it all before it’s got here but Mr Nicholas & Steele also known as Mr Once Around the Block is keeping his beady eye on the proceedings!

image

Sugar Hill Living are joining us on Friday upstairs just below the Tangled Vine candles. The girls are really excited about this and Mrs Sugar Hill is just so lovely too. She promises lots of gorgeous items and has been preparing them to bring in.

image

I also hear that Small Wonders is joining the girls downstairs in one of the cubby holes by the till. Her pictures are truly inspiring and she is also in our other favourite shop Afterglow in Olney.

image

The fabulous limited edition prints from Planet Cow are still going well. One is in my stairwell if you fancy seeing it in the flesh so to speak. All the amazing traders are constantly popping in through my doors to restock so there is never a dull moment here. You never know what you may find but I can guarantee that if you don’t buy it when you see it then it will be gone the next time you visit!

image

The girls are now also the local stockists for Parlane and I hear they went on a “jolly” to visit the showroom in the Cotswolds. They came back having bought lots of terrific items that will be arriving soon plus they even ordered Christmas bits n bobs (what’s that all about then it’s not even summer yet!?!?)

image

You chaps are loving our Dapper Duke range for your fine beards and moustaches. The ladies are finding they make great gifts too. Did you know the girls do gift vouchers too? Just ask at the till. The girls also now have a range of scented candles especially developed for them by Tangled Vine.

image

A new range of wrapping paper from the Art File has arrived too and is proving really popular. I’ve heard a few customers mention that it’s too nice to wrap a parcel with so they are going to frame it!

image

Remember too if you have an event there is some amazing clothing upstairs. We have Throwback with plaid shirts, denim, corduroy, aran sweaters and more. Maggie Ann Vintage with reproduction clothing in all sizes including a fab 40’s tea dress just in, Chaps of Distinction with jackets, hats, cravats, ties, shoes braces and Tussies. Grace Face Boutique with her gorgeous handmade dresses for adults and children (can also be made to order) and of course the lovely Ann with her cute handmade clothing.

Tangled Vine

Glasses

Tangled Vine first started with the girls by supplying them the fab candles in jars and glasses that you can see downstairs. The girls found them at the big fair in Central Milton Keynes and spent ages sniffing all the candles. Tangled Vine have expanded within my walls and now have a lovely long shelf upstairs where they sell their candles in bottles, drizzle bottles, drinking tumblers, clocks and more. Helen has even given up her “normal” job to concentrate on the business now!

Bottles
Bottle Candles

The candles are made from soy wax. What’s soy wax I hear you yell? Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. Soy’s greatest advantage is that it is completely renewable. While the global reserves of oil shrink and paraffin prices increase, the only limit to the soy supply is how much we choose to grow. In addition to sustainability, a Tangled Vines soy candle will burn cleanly and slowly. All their products are made from used, original bottles and labels. The bottles are hand cut and finished by Tangled┬áVine in their Buckinghamshire workshop.

Tangled Vine travel the country doing fairs so do take a peep at their website to see where they can be found next.

Love it or hate it!

The girls have got three fabulous Christmas scents in now too and these are selling super fast.
