sukie hankies & bags

Well, despite the snow we have managed to keep the doors of boo vake well and truly open throughout (having cut a path through to the High Street with our trusty dustpan) and although it looks like the weather is not about to warm up any time soon there seems to be a lot more movement out there on the streets again. Hurrah!
With the cold weather comes the inevitable sniffles and sneezes, and luckily we are on hand with these new super cute hankies from Sukie - which are now in the shop! We have Elephant, Daddy Bird, Octopus & Tiger.
And we also have some of Sukie's organic cotton book bags, which come in three designs - Alphabet, Bird Tree & Strange Fruit.

Oh...and do remember we can do mail order throughout the UK if you can't make it into Perth. Just phone us, send us an e-mail or fill in our contact form on the website and we'll see what we can do. Payments can be made over the phone or we can send you an invoice which can be paid online.

mini pocket handkerchiefs £9, organic cotton book bags £9.50
