Our shop in The Courtyard, Hope, is moving around the corner to a lovely old building right on the corner of Edale Road. At one point the property, along with the post office next door, was a pub called The Durham Ox. In a later incarnation it was the Williams and Deacons bank, then became Williams and Glyns and finally the RBS, but closed down in the mid 80s. It's been an office building since then but we can't wait to turn it into a charming new shop.
The contractors are in at the moment - Alison has already found layers of old 19C wallpaper that she's trying to separate - but we're hoping to be in and open by the beginning of February.
That date may move backwards slightly but we're planning to move the stock in a few weeks. The building is much larger than our present premises so we're intending to start small-scale manufacturing in one of the upstairs rooms. We've always wanted to create our own exclusive range using natural organic fibres and local wool and the venture starts here.
We'll announce the opening of our new Derbyshire store as soon as we can
