Mmmm, Jumble & Pearls!

What a wonderfully enticing name for a vintage and designer fayre.  We were sold on the name alone without knowing much else about it and although we're not quite jumble, we like to think that we put crafty pearls of inspiration into our work.

Do we want to try our hand at taking a table there?  Goodness, if it gives us a valid excuse to spend some time looking at jumble, try keeping us away.  
I live in an area where many of my children's friends have beautiful houses where there's a place for everything and everything is in it's place.  Sometimes I daydream about living in such a palace, how easy they must be to clean for a start… my reality though, is a house distinctly displaying the signs of 3 young children, and my own love of 'stuff'.  Nina Fox's house is very much the same (though she has more nice 'stuff' than me - at the moment…)  (I say 'at the moment because we're SO going to Jumble & Pearls.)

Some of Nina's jumble treasures:

Being at Jumble & Pearls is going to be a day where both of us will need to bring a large bag and lots of restraint.  We're thoroughly looking forward to rustling through racks of musty smelling clothes or casting our eyes over table tops filled with 'things that are nice to look at'.  Millinery and independent designers to boot, we cannot wait!

I don't really remember ever buying Nina, nor her buying me, what normal teenage girls might deem 'cool' presents.  Over 25 + years of friendship we've given each, amongst other things, bits of pottery, old clocks and Victorian tiles.  I'm pretty sure we'll both find plenty of birthday gift potential on Feb 8th...
And being closely followed by Valentines Day is a timely excuse to buy the Mr Fox's gifts of items we think they would like to see in our houses (ahem)… 

We've also tried to 'love up' just a few of our wares, although loving somebody is surely reason enough to find them a unique gift of any kind.

For children, we'll be bringing little craft kits and beautiful room accessories.

For those of us aged 12 and over, our room accessories are still suitable and we'll be bringing our very own Make Your Own Fergal Fox Kits.
Nina Fox has been busy needle point felting gorgeous little creatures, the likes of which are easy to fall in love with.

We will also take advances on commissions, should we run out of anything or should something be just what you want, but not quite.

With many more traders selling equally unique goodies, Jumble & Pearls will have something for everyone; vintage - art - bikes - interiors - independent designers - jewellery - crafts - hats - dresses - sweets.  Be you a child, a teenager, a lady, a gent, a yummy or a slummy mummy, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a husband or a wife, you are sure to find something to your taste or the taste of somebody you love.  Why ever would you not go?


  1. How strange. One of my friends was involved with setting up Jumble and Pearls. Not sure if she's still doing it. Hope it goes well anyway.

    Are the loveheart foxes available online? They are super-cute (and lolol at the oh-so-familiar idea of buying them 'things that they would love to have around the house').

  2. The fox with the love heart is a one off for Jumbel & Pearls at the moment, but we do take commissions… so if you were looking to home Fergal with his Love Heart, we would be more than happy to make one for you. We have a fee for commissions but in your case would not charge - cos we've been reading your blog for a while now and we enjoy your company…
    Our J&P lady is Rosalia - is she your old friend?
