I’m getting that spring cleaning feeling now! It makes me want to re-paint my lounge, cheer up the sofa and refresh what I call home. I think it’s down to the Sun streaming through the windows that makes you want to open them up to the world and shake off the winter. With that in mind, it makes me really happy to introduce you to a few new things that have arrived in Hettie Holland. I hope they serve to cheer up a room that is in need of a little shake up - especially if you’re not about to launch into a major re-decoration. 


So how about these Copper Planters which you can use just as decor or put a bushy indoor plant inside - the green and copper colours look lovely together. Also in new are House Doctor Glass Vases which will take a big bunch of Spring tulips or ranunculus and make any room literally come to life! Quirky new stock too with gold parrot candles, boho style trinket trays, and tattooist designed cushions. It’s always worth popping in as the stock frequently changes and there is always something new to see.

Wedding season is almost upon us too so I’ve stocked up with present ideas - plenty of different styles of wooden and brass candle sticks, concrete dipped vases in various colours and the famous Eames placemats and coasters. You can order online at the e-store and collect in the store or have it send out -  gift wrapped and ready to go - whatever is easiest for you.

Planning is ongoing for this year’s Stroud Green Festival which I am again sponsoring and Clare who runs it has come up with novel idea of having some pop up performances in various shops, bars and pubs. Finally I get a musician to play the Fender Rhodes electric piano in store! Hettie Holland and a few others will be having music on Sat 20th June so I’ll let you know who and time soon. I think this is a great idea as it’s magical to suddenly hear live virtuoso playing whilst having a coffee or doing some shopping. Be sure to stop, enjoy the music and be inspired to book tickets to see some great performances.

Crouch End 10km this weekend so if you are running make sure you get filled up with your porridge before you leave and have a great run for a good cause. Wish me luck!
