Why are we called Hunt & Gather
Its always a struggle to find a name for any business, and it has to be easy to remember and define what you do...
Tracey and I both have Art Degrees, (History of Art & History of Design and Furniture Design / Manufacture)
We handmade and design most of the stock on our shelves all from reclaimed / recycled timber. Over many years we have Hunted and Gathered timber and stored it in our workshop - we both enjoyed creating products from recycled timber - and hence the name stuck 'Hunt' and 'Gather'. In store we have tried to balance the exciting stock from our suppliers with our own hand made gifts. Delighted to say we have x2 suppliers and were hand picked by 'East of India' and have an even expanding collection of Emma Bridgewater gifts too.
We are having a new shop sign fitted in the New Year and on the sign will be an abbreviated version of what I have just written. Hopefully people will grasp what we do when passing! If you have any ideas what we should add msg us: or comment below
We love receiving message from people so please don't feel hesitant
We often get asked if we personalise items or handmake items to fit and we often do. Please ask if there is some thing you are looking for and its not at hand - we can often make the items for you.
