hannah turner owls

Been so looking forward to these! Ceramic artist Hannah Turner has added a very stylish family of owls to join her range of quirky and retro inspired birdies and these magnicent little felllows have been making themselves quite at home here at boo vake. We have them in 3 sizes - all the way from 7cm to a rather grand 14.5cm.

A new delivery from the very very talented ladies at Lush Designs arrived this week including these rather fabulous teatowels. We now have the wild pigs lampshades, fox & cubs bags & cushions, and the horse cushions back in stock along with some rather lovely new fox & cubs pendant shades (image to come soon).
hell's kitchen & teacup ladies teatowels £11

make your mitts

Now the timing may not be the best (although it's still pretty chilly in Perth) but we now have these fabulous make your mitts kits from Dundee based Hilary Grant in the shop. Each kit contains four knitted & felted lambswool panels, lambswool yarn in 4 colors, and illustrated instructions & templates to make your own entirely unique pair of woolly mittens. Love them!

thank you!

A belated thank you to the marvellous Sarah & Graeme who very kindly looked after boo vake for me on the Saturday (10th) when I was away enjoying the tail end of a break in the Czech Republic. This was their second time helping out in the shop (the first being when I fell off a chair and broke my knee a few years ago) and apparently it still hasn't put them off. Thank you both - much appreciated!

a wee break

boo vake will be taking a wee break over the next week (so we will be CLOSED the normal Tues, Wed, Thurs, & Fri).
...but we will be back OPEN on Saturday the 10th.

Wishing everybody a happy Easter!
