What a fantastic few days we had at ‘The Handmade Fair’ with Kirstie Allsopp last weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed being amongst so many creatives!! As it was out first time at this event we didn’t really know what to expect. The fair had a real festival feel with delicious food and drink outlets dotted all around and in the September sunshine these eateries made for great places to sit and soak it all up! Two fabulous marquees ‘The Shopping Village’ packed full of beautiful things to tempt you with. Plus lots of other tents with amazing workshops going on daily.
It was great to meet so many new customers too! Our most popular sellers at the show being luxury sleep masks, shower caps & hot water bottles.
If you haven’t checked out our Instagram & Facebook pages make sure you do as there’s lots of great photos of it all! We’ve added one here of one of our lovely customers wearing a shower cap they proved very popular!
Come and enjoy Coffee and Cakes at the Thurlestone Hotel and help us raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support…The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. They ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone they raised £25 million and this year they are aiming to raise even more. With your help we can do this!
Our new Winter 2016 collection will be available at the event together with lots of other gorgeous personalised gifts for men and women such as wash bags, make up bags, sleep masks, shower caps, hot water bottles plus oilcloth sold by the metre.

Last week saw the start of our Autumn/Winter 15 photo shoots on location in Hope Cove and surrounding areas. What a fun time we had, our concerns of the weather being too hot for our model were nothing to worry about in the end!
Without giving too much away about our new collection we will soon be introducing you to Faith, Alice and Muriel. All the collections are a mixture of Oilcloth and cotton pieces. A selection of adorable placement print cosmetic bags and bespoke printed ones too, giving you the choice to personalise your LL&CO bags! The images from our shoot are currently being edited and will be uploaded over. the coming weeks. The collection will be available in August, but will be available to back order once it’s on our website.
All that’s left to say is if you like ‘Vintage Lingerie’ you’ll LOVE the new collection.
