Last Saturday son No 1 Leah Fusco and I attended a talk by the artist John Virtue and the art historian and broadcaster Andrew Graham Dixon at the Towner Gallery Eastbourne.

We Folk

Now we have recovered our decorum we have decided to have a  SALE.

But we are not anticipating a stampede, no pushing, shoving or overnight camping,

Perhaps just a discreet enquiry for a pair of Alpaca socks, a hand knitted bobble hat or a lambs wool throw from Ireland.
We have taken 10% off, actually more... the remaining Leeds Pottery.... ( so tempted to keep it all myself now it's discontinued ) and are searching the hidden depths of FOLK HQ for any overlooked goods.

Love the weird Ouija woman in the middle...

Happy New Year!
