We decided for our 13th Wedding Anniversary to go away for a long weekend to Cornwall. We stayed in this gorgeous cottage in Mousehole and on Saturday visited the lovely town of St. Ives.
Whilst looking in all the wonderful little boutique shops we found one called LAFF selling lots of baby and children’s clothes made in the UK. They stocked brands such as Lizzie Shirt, Little Blossoms, Madfish Clothing and Inch Blue all designed and manufactured in the UK (mostly in Cornwall).
We bought a baby top by Lizzie Shirt and some baby dungarees with butterflies on by Little Blossoms.
Then on Sunday we decided to visit St. Just and as we were driving in we spotted a craft shop and Robert saw a sign in the window for Little Blossoms!
They weren’t really open but the owner let us go in and we chatted for ages about the baby clothes and finding ones made in the UK. It was great to meet the designer and maker of the clothes and we couldn’t help ourselves and bought 4 more items!
We loved this thick fleecy coat and bought it in size 1-2yr old so that we would get more wear out of it! We also bought a gorgeous baby pink flower dress, blue spotty baby jacket and pink spotty dungarees.
The fabrics were just gorgeous and we were sorely tempted to buy everything in the shop!
In addition all the Little Blossom clothes are reversible so there are pockets and decorative flowers on the inside and outside, so they can be worn either way. We were very impressed to say the least!
In general, Cornwall seems to be very proud of all it makes and shouts about it at every opportunity! Why don’t we do this in Warwickshire?
