A crafty collection

a little bird told me 2It’s no secret that the Girls Around Town like shopping.

If they’re not doing it, they’re talking about it – and June for one has never been known to pass up the opportunity to check out a new shop in town…

So when A Little Bird Told Me Emporium opened last month, it wasn’t long before she dropped in to meet owner Louise Clark. And, just in case you’re wondering, she didn’t leave the shop empty-handed – no surprise there then!

Louise will be joining June and Sue on the show this weekend to talk about how her new venture is giving local crafters the chance to showcase and sell their work.

Almost all of the shabby chic arts and crafts on sale are hand-made and the shop also sells upcycled old furniture which has been given a new lease of life.

Twenty-five people are already involved with A Little Bird Told Me, some of whom will be passing their skills on to customers by running workshops on topics such as flower arranging and furniture painting. There’s also a small tea room at the back of the shop and a weekly pop-up nail bar offering vintage-style designs.

Join June, Sue and Louise between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday, on air or online, to find out more about how one local businesswoman is giving other small businesses a helping hand…
