Look What We Found In Cornwall!

Picture of Cornwall CottageWe 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.

They stocked brands such as Lizzie Shirt, Little Blossoms, Madfish Clothing and Inch Blue all designed and manufactured in the UK (mostly in Cornwall).

Picture of Little Blossoms Baby DungareesWe 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!

Picture of Little Blossoms Baby DressWe 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.

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?

    • Hi Heather
      I’ll look out for your shop when I’m next in Stratford.

      I think it’s a great idea and often wondered about doing something similar myself! Great location for it too!

      I wish you every success

      Cathy
