Moving Sale A5

Moving with the winds

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.
In the meantime make sure you come in and see us and stock up on all your favourite goodies while stocks last

Play Silks

silkscapesPlay silks allow imaginations to create and flow with the changing moods of play.

Uses are limited only by ones imagination;  Squares of 90cm can be used for flowing landscapes, table cloths or dress ups: cloaks, skirts or wraps.  Squares of 53cm can be used for wrapping dolls or bundles of treasures or in the centre of a table.  A rectangle length of 2.7m long can be used for draping over tables or frames to create forts, cubbies and private little enclosures, even over a bassinet, cot or bed.    Each size is available in a range of plain and/or variegated colours.

Hand wash, hang dry. We find children love to wash these themselves in a sink or bucket outside. The silk feels different and interesting when wet!

Above image shows variegated colours – rainbow, sea, starry night, blossom and fire.  For more information see our web page playcloths and silks.
