They've arrived!! Nov. 09

I've ordered these wonderful little tin bird brooches to be in stock by the second week in October. Can't wait and can't decide which one I want ... such are the joys of having a shop and getting too attached to the stock ... I'm sure that we've got a therapy somewhere in Totnes to help me to be more businesslike:)
They will sell for £26 each and are handmade by Melanie Tomlinson who is based in the Midlands. You may have seen one of the birds in a recent Country Living but can't recall which one and my copy has gone to ground in the chaos which is our home!
PS. The birds vary in size from 6.5 to 8.9cm long. Thanks for reminding me Floss:)


  1. Ditto! I've just done a post about these brooches...they are stunning!

  2. I couldn't work out the scale at first, but I like them as brooches! (Actually, I would hvae liked them bigger, too...)

  3. They are charming.. what are they made of?

  8. Hi I have just come across your blog and realised what a small world this is, as I often come to Totnes for weekends (we stay in Brixham usually)I always visit your shop on a Friday, and last time in the summer bought a lovely washed glass necklace as it was my birthday. We are coming for Christmas so I will say hello. I went to the V&H fair today (first time), it was lovely & very busy. Tracey
