Trouvaille Stitch Kits

Trouvaille: something lovely discovered by chance.

Lovely these kits certainly are – born from Jennifer’s love of crafting and cross stitch, but her lack of inspiration from the kits that are widely available. Jennifer had trouble connecting with the generic stitch kits, with landmarks of cities she had no connection to.

So she created her own – looking at her beloved North East for inspiration, and painstakingly creating kits that celebrate our own landmarks. Now we can purchase kits to cross stitch the amazing Spanish City building, or Penshaw Monument.

These kits are the perfect gift for the craft lover in your life, or perhaps a family member who misses the North East.

JUNI Jewellery

JUNI’s beginning started with the passion I had for the creative arts, in particular jewellery. I spent hours admiring the process of jewellery making and thought how wonderful it would be to be able to create my own unique collections for others to enjoy. The passion became a beautiful obsession. The hours spent researching, reading articles and note-taking was countless. Finally, I was ready to get started and with the encouragement from those closest to me I decided to design and make my first piece.

JUNI was designed around the idea that each piece of jewellery should last and tell a story. Each JUNI collection is put together and made by hand, making sure that each piece is unique, no matter how small the difference may be.

The aim is for my customers to be able to buy a piece of jewellery that means something to them. Especially for them to see the love and care that has gone into each design. A significant part of this idea was to therefore make sure that each piece was made from the finest of materials. All our jewellery is made from either Silver 925 Sterling Silver or 9ct Solid Yellow Gold. We only work with fine metal to ensure that you are provided with a sustainable yet beautiful design.

As well as standing by our ethos of providing the highest quality designs, we also want to provide our customers with affordable fine jewellery. Meaning our range of designs are always growing to cater for everyone.”

Amazing Jane

We are Amazing Jane, an active and leisure wear brand encouraging women new to exercise or who aren’t quite in a regular habit, to move a little more, show themselves some love and just “show up as you are”.  

We have created a community group on social media to support our customers and to give them a brand that they feel they can belong to. Through our Amazing Jane community we help you stay positive and valued whilst encouraging you to reach your goals, whatever they may be. You will be joining like minded women who don’t live and breathe exercise but know they need to move more for their health and wellbeing. 

Our clothes are all designed with different body shapes in mind, either to disguise areas or add shape and flatter. They are designed with the science of “Enclothed Cognition”. Simply put, the clothes you wear have the ability to directly affect how you think and therefore how you feel, and what you do. 

By designing clothes that fit and flatter, hang beautifully, and have a touch that takes you to sensory heaven; our clothes will give you the confidence and security to walk through the door to something outside your comfort zone. 

Amazing Jane is less about Body Confidence and more about Self Acceptance. ​Sometimes all it takes is that shift in your brain to help boost your confidence and help you make healthier choices.

Cher Graiden

Full-time NHS end of life Nurse Cher Graiden has written and published four books including two children’s books and 2 fiction novels. Each book has a lesson to be learned with a deeper meaning, that signifies much more than just words on a page.  

Eldon the Owl and Harry Hotdog are the two children’s books, with both books being written with the purpose of teaching children an important life lesson. Eldon was written for Cher’s granddaughter in order to teach her that there are no limits to your imagination despite whatever else may be going on around you, whereas Harry Hotdog was written for her foster son, to show him that no matter what people say, you should always stay true to yourself.  

Cher’s Eldon the Owl is a brilliant story for children between the ages of 2 and 5, whereas Harry Hotdog is aimed more at children between the ages of 5 and 7. Both stories have strong meanings that will aid in child development, as the books are able to teach them positive life lessons.
