Bye Bye Bear

We closed our doors for the last time in Woburn walk on Tuesday, after a lovely three week stay. The bears have all gone home for Christmas.

Thank you for all your support for Settle, and we will keep you posted on the blog with news of new adventures to come.

Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to all of you.

Settling in nicely

We're very happily 'Settling' into Woburn walk. The shop looks beautiful, especially as the late afternoons draw in, and the lamps are glowing. In fact we are opening for an extra hour on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week, for all those after work shoppers...(see the details above for our new opening hours).

Here are a few of our favourite things to wet your appetites...

 We'll be in Woburn Walk for another eight days, and we very much hope to see you there.

...and don't forget there's a free Settle Bear for each of you with any purchase (one bear per customer while stocks last)...so come and choose yours. Just quote the code SETTLE BLG4

Talking shop

This morning, after two busy days of painting, shifting, arranging and re-arranging we opened the doors of Settle. Here is Louisa and Helen having a natter whilst adding a few finishing touches.

The Bear Essentials

Here is the first of our Settle Bears. We all think he's marvellous.

If you would like your own free bear, come and see us at Settle - you will need to either print out the picture above, or quote the code SETTLE BLG4. He comes free with a purchase - one bear per customer while stocks last.

The Settle Bear

This is the lovely Settle Bear. We have been working on the ideas for him for a few weeks, and Helen has planned and designed him for us, making lots and lots of beautiful cut out samples - all sorts of different bears standing and walking...and we like this guy the best. He is being laser cut for us out of birch ply, and will have a really magical poignant fairy-tale feel to him.

Yesterday we went to VV Rouleaux to choose ribbon for him - beautiful silk in the most lovely sugary colours, with a deep navy for the boys. He will definately be the 'talk of the walk'.

If you would like to find out how you can get your own free Settle Bear, do keep reading the blog for details.

Getting ready

This is Louisa's partner Mat making the 'A' board to go outside the shop. Just needs a lick of paint and it's ready!

Charleston Grey

The lovely people at Farrow and Ball have very kindly given us the paint for Settle. We have chosen a glorious soft donkey colour - perfect for all our subtle tones and sharp accents. By a lovely happenstance, the name of the colour is 'Charleston Grey' - a favourite and much used hue of the Bloomsbury set. All particularly apt as Settle will be in the heart of Bloomsbury...I can't wait to see it on the walls.

Thank you Farrow and Ball!
