It has a name!

From Dave

Mrs. H and I regroup on Wards Island every couple of weeks or so. It’s my ancestral home, when my kids are there they are 5th generation Islanders.

Many of the sensibilities in the shop are derivate of Wards Island. We don’t really know how to describe our shop to people who have never been in; the phrases we use never sit right with us and leave our friends a bit glassy eyed.

I found a book; lent to my Mom by my Aunt, fully perused by my cousins (that kind of book) each page contained at least one image of something we have in the shop.

Huh.

We’re “Bloomsbury Style”!!!

Named after a group of artists living in the Bloomsbury neighborhood of London and manifested in their Sussex country retreat “Charleston”.

Circa 1910, they thrifted Victorian furniture, upcycled pottery, repurposed doors,reused textiles and hoarded books and sculpture. It is magical.

Now we know our Roncesvalles shop isn’t Charleston, we’re just happy that this thing of ours has a name.

Have a look!

We’re working on a little pop-up shop inspired by the Bloomsbury-like items in our shop.

We’ll be in touch.
