Bold Street – Bolder and Brighter than ever?

Filed in Blog by on 25th January 2015 0 Comments • views: 1618

 

January this year was more of a shock to me than usual  – just the cold weather after such a warm summer and autumn, slightly drab days after the brightly lit stores and magical fairy lights of Christmas. That “Back to School” feeling – really left me hankering for duvet days more than ever before.

Trying to shake it off I took a wander along Bold Street. Many years ago when I first moved to Liverpool a friend mentioned Bold St to me, but I never really explored it then. It is one of those places which you want to drift along and in my commodity trading days I never really drifted but strode with a purpose and tended to bypass everyday magic. More and more over the past few years I have found Bold street start to become a little Bohemian Haven . The little businesses there are a real credit to the city with their very individual styles and approaches.

I find it truly uplifting when I wander along here listening and just soaking in the atmosphere.

So – I did this in my little daze a few weeks ago and came away truly inspired.

A result of the daze is our Bold Street Collection – a collection of truffles inspired by those wonderful eateries ….  we hope you enjoy reading about it on this link (you can also order it here)

Happy July

We hope you have had a good start to July. The Sun is starting to show some signs of making an appearance here.

Our last weekend in June was fabulous as we were at the wonderful St Georges Hall with so many amazing independent artists. It was an absolute delight to be there.

The atmosphere was so warm and welcoming. The organisers, Open Culture, did an amazing job.

We were then treated to the delights of Port Sunlight and were at “Handmade Fairs” which is jointly run by Port Sunlight Trust and Landbaby and Co. The setting was beautiful – we were in Bridge Cottage. Bridge Cottage is one of the largest and most architecturally significant in Port Sunlight. It is thought to have been built for the creator of the Lever Brothers Empire William Hesketh Lever who lived there on occasion between 1893 and 1900 while his primary residence in Thornton Hough was being renovated. Bridge Cottage has been continuously occupied by someone of important standing within the village and factory communities since 1900, including the schoolmaster, gallery curator, an eminent Dutch scientist, and the Lever Brothers company secretary. During the First World War it functioned as a crèche for women working in the factory and in the Second World War it suffered bomb damage after a land mine was dropped close by. More recently, the cottage has been home to the ministers of Christ Church until it was sold to Port Sunlight Village Trust in July 2015.

The next Handmade Fair at Bridge Cottage is on 11th September so put a date in your diaries if you would like to see the inside of this lovely place.

Other dates for your diaries:

9th July – Wirral Farmers Market;
9th July – Claremont Farm Summer Social
16th July – S-Luxe sample sale fashion show at Camp and furnace
23rd July – West Kirby Farmers Market
24th July – Dabble workshop open to public at Claremont farm Wirral -prebooking essential.

Hope we’ll catch up with you soon!
