A roar of excitement echoed around the Shop Floor office this week on opening this month's issue of Vogue magazine when we saw they have featured a new piece of jewellery by design house, Bonbi Forest, one of the most popular designers at The Shop Floor Project. Featuring the locket on the magazine's ' In Vogue' page which this month is reflecting on the Autumn / Winter catwalk trend for all things fauna!
There are two versions of the locket available which can be purchased in the Jewellery Room at The Shop Floor Project.

Ian has now painted all of the shops signs in the conservation area of Ulverston, which could easily be mistaken for a pre-war shopping street. Our neighbours include a rather wonderful tea garden and coffee house, herbalists, book shop, stylish clothes boutiques, antiques shops and the irresistible Russian chocolate shop selling the best sour cherry nougat we've ever tasted.
Because we got so excited by his skills, coupled with our love of traditional crafts, we have commissioned Ian to created signage within the shop too. I hope we don't get carried away!
Ian is one of numerous craft workers which still thrive in the town, from cobblers working in what can only be described as a workshop straight out of Dickens, to upholsterers in Buxton Mews, seamstresses and haberdashers in Union Alley and a grandfather clock repairer and retailer in Upper Brook Street. All of these shops, and many more, proudly display a sign which Ian has lovingly painted.
