hooray!


Gordon-Bennet! How excited are we? Just a bit. By lucky hap, we have procured ourselves a rather lovely shop, in the little picturesque harbour town of Yarmouth, right here on the Isle of Wight.

So, it may not have the foot fall of London, but at least we will have a brick 'n mortar shop where peeps can actually see our jewellery in the flesh, rather than only online (or at our Tokyo shop).

We are very hard at work, juggling our daughter and business, with refurbishing our new premises, so things may be a bit blank here on my blog for a while. My mister and I have been painting like crazy!
We hope to open sometime this summer, as soon as we can get everything ready, there will be a new collection and a new accessories collection too, eek! 

More info coming up shortly, or follow our progress over on our rust instagram : )

Well done! That's such exciting news and I bet your shop will increase the foot fall in Yarmouth by itself!

Hurray! What an undertaking but I am confident the three of you are up to it!

Ruth Allison said...

Best of luck with your new venture! I'm sure yourself and Nao will fill it with beautiful things, and hope you find the time to make some of the beautiful childrens clothes and accessories that I've seen on your blog. Ruth in Dublin.

Does that mean the London commute will stop? Fascinating to know how this will go for you. Keeping a shop is hard ( been there, done it!) and much as I love the island you're not going to get the footfall. But full of admiration!

we don't really commute to london that much, as its only twice a month...but as that's where our business is based, that will of course continue. Keeping a shop in Tokyo and two online shops has at times been challenging over the last 10 years, but I would not call it 'hard work' but I guess it depends on what you are selling? Of course we are not relying on foot fall on the isle of Wight!, but as the out goings are vastly less than in a city...our online sales should cover it ok, and we get to have a physical showroom somewhere in the country is great! Hope that clears up a few things! ; )

I think it's a great Idea. People always focus on the big cities, but there is life in small country towns as wel!! Good job, and good luck!
