the bookhou shop is now open - have a look around, this is just a soft opening and as the weeks go by I will add more items, the ceramics will be added tomorrow - I put up one item just to give you an idea of what I will be selling. check out also new pillows and the return of the cloud flat tote!

I hope you like this new as much as we do - it's the result of a lot of long nights and moments of frustration. it will definitely be a different shopping experience for you. when we first started our business about 10 years ago, we sold goods from our website, maybe some of you shopped on there? when it was on our website I did all my own layout (it was so much work!) and proved to be difficult to maintain, so that was when I made the move over to the etsy shop, but with etsy I wasn't able to present the pieces the way I originally wanted - now I can and I am so happy. please let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.
thanks so much for visiting, xxa
