Happy to see the sunshine again as we prepare for our first Shrewsbury Flower Show.

We are really looking forward to attending this event as we have been asked many times in the past if we exhibit at the show.  We are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces.

JANUARY 2017.

We would like to wish all of our customers a very Happy new year! Thank you all for your custom we really do appreciate it.

So here we are at the start of another year. Its that time of year where we are looking for new pieces to bring to the Uk. We are always trying to think of new pieces to add to the collection so that we have something different for customers that like to add new pieces to their collections.

This is also the time when we are either applying for or waiting to hear back from organisers about exhibition space for the shows that we will attend throughout the year

 We have exhibited at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and the  RHS Tatton Park Flower Show for the past 9 years We have also attended Chelsea Flower Show with an award winning stand and RHS Cardiff Flower Show. For 2017, we had applied to exhibit at all of the RHS Flower Shows and were excited by the new Chatsworth show which is being held for the first time this year.

We were shocked and disappointed on 16th December to receive a letter from the RHS to inform us that we would not be able to attend ANY  of their shows in 2017!! What a shock after 9 years and multiple awards. to say this took the wind out of our sails is an understatement, and it took away any festive spirit we had.  Our stand is always busy with people enjoying our exhibit and even if they are not wanting to purchase a piece they enjoy walking around our stand to admire the fantastic sculptures that the Zimbabwean artists create. Our stand is always very much admired. We have even been told how customers have enjoyed the experience of walking around our stand more than many of the show gardens. What a huge compliment. 

We are now thinking of other things to try to make sure that we can continue to give work to the artists that we deal with. we feel we have a responsibily to the artists and their families.

If you will miss us at the RHS Shows please feel free to send us or the RHS an email.

Well here is to a positive 2017. As the saying goes when one door closes another one opens! As we have confirmation from shows we will add them to our diary dates on the website.  As always if you would like to speak to us directly about events in your area or anything else please call us.

Warm Regards

Lacey & Kes.

What an awful time we are all going through. Hopefully you and your families are staying safe and well. Being a family business we are still able to get into work as and when orders come in, so please be asured if you need us we are still here and ale to get orders to you. We are only having parcels collected rather than taking them to a drop off . The courier companies are doing all they can. We have closed our warehouse to all staff other than Kes and myself and we are not open to members of the public at this current time. We place our parcels outside of the warehouse for colection so that we help the couriers with they social distancing. As far as we are aware there has been no interruption to delivery times, Delivery firms have asked that as little contact is made and have asked for details to be added of safe place to leave parcel so that their drivers do not have to interact with too many people throughout their day. Stay safe and well. We will miss seeing you all at the shows this year. Take care, Kes and Lacey. Travellers Finds Ltd
