Christmas Has Come To Town!

The Perching Post Christmas Window 2013Christmas has definitely arrived at The Perching Post! Our Christmas window display is up and all of our decs are out. It took me all day to set up and about 2 weeks to make and apart from my drunk street lamps, I’m really rather proud of it!

We’ve got lots of new items in the shop, great gift ideas and offers coming up. To see all up-to-date info follow us on Twitter.

Have a great week ūüôā

On the Hunt for New Designers!

The Perching Post is looking for some new designers in affordable jewellery, scarves, leather bags & gloves to stock in our shop!

We’re looking to expand our gift range over Christmas and would love to be able to support new designers, however, we do have some catches:
*You have to be based in the UK and ideally we would love the products to be made in Great Britain but this is not a necessity.
*We would like to try out the items on a Sale or Return Basis for our first order.
*By affordable we mean something that you might buy for a good friend, so price ranges from £10-£60
*We’d like to have everything ready in for Christmas shoppers¬†by¬†Nov 22nd.
Please have a look out our online shop to see¬†whether you think your items might fit in and¬†have a look at our pinterest boards. We like¬†quirky stylish products. Our target audience is¬†affluent family‚Äôs so late 20‚Äôs to 60‚Äôs. We are also¬†looking for Men’s gifts! They’re so hard to buy for,¬†right?
If you’re interested please email Anna with some info or if you have any other questions: anna[at]theperchingpost.co.uk or theperchingpost[at]gmail.com
Please spread the word and share, thank you!

Farrow and Ball, Purple Carrot and Hunted and Stuffed…

Purple Carrot, a local community project based in Barnes, upcycles furniture that would otherwise go to landfill. Not only do they do this but they employ local people who are out of work or living on the margin. It’s a wonderful project and they teamed up with Farrow and Ball in Richmond to upcycle some beautiful items in the new F&B colours.

As with ¬†‘A Colourful Adventure‘ a delightful little book by Farrow and Ball, which follows the journey of neglected furniture into magnificent beauties, here is Purple Carrot’s furniture journey:

Founder of Hunted and Stuffed, Ellie Laycock, and author of ‘Creating The Vintage Look‘ also got involved and was able to give them some upcycling design ideas including the leather drawer straps- what an awesome idea!

To support this project we are showcasing all of these items in our shop and online under Pop Up Shop! Get in quick-  these pieces will go fast!

New Autumn Collection

Well firstly I must apologise for my silence, it’s been extremely hectic what with working on our new collection, working with a community project (more on that in the next post), another very exciting idea which I’m bursting to tell you about but I have to keep under wraps for now and lastly, getting ready for christmas!

As for the new collection, it’s mostly up on the website for you to browse and buy. ¬†It’s a collection of furniture items I’ve found; some new, some old and some made to order, more homewares and accessories. They’ll be a few more items to add later but if I say so myself, I think it’s looking pretty good…..

 

All of the images were taken by Yeshen Venema in The Old Bakehouse Studios of Art , Barnes.
