Last Autumn a friend of mine opened a gorgeous shop in Mill Street called Lovely Pops, Hannah wanted to provide a show case for all the makers in the island, so everything in this beautiful haven is locally made.
I popped in today to deliver the framed applique of Herm and Jethou, and Hannah very kindly put it in the window.
And so I thought I would show you round this inspirational shop
Katie's colourful china is decorated with Guernsey cows and donkeys but she also personalises pieces with babies foot prints, dates or house names. Brilliant gifts.
a wealth of gorgiousness, and at the back Hannah has space to make her own range of Lovely Pops smiley soft fabric dolls and rabbits. And she sometimes also hosts classes there.
Hannah's little rabbits
Two Puffins in the corner,
and there is mine just above Ink Bison's beautiful chap, and down below
are a pair of my mad haired dolls, fun but not toys!
smooth and tactile turned wood along side Guernsey bees wax candles (they smell delicious!)
A cupboard of delights, Fleur's crocheted link scarfs, Iris and Dora's papercut/screen printed cushions and oh look, one of my Guernsey Fish at the bottom ;-)
Adore these Guernsey cheese boards (gave quite a few as Christmas presents) and used my set of the slate map coaster yesterday, so simple yet so effective. And behind them you can see Little Paper Galleries beautiful Guernsey scene cards, we have actually just started stocking them at the Tapestry Gallery. Don't tell Chris but think he will be getting one as his anniversary card on Wednesday!
Well if you happen to be passing or fancy a climb up in to the beautiful old quarter, do pop in and see Hannah, it is well worth it (her opening hours 10.30-2.30 then 3.30-4.30 and Saturdays 10-4)
