Two and a half years ago I bought a beautiful 1950's toy shop at a French flea market. I decided that I didn't want to go back to translating monotonous telecommunications manuals after maternity leave so I started to write a blog.
It's taken me all this time to get here. It has been a wonderful, exciting, enriching journey and I can't wait to wake up each morning to discover new artwork, share new finds and connect with new talented, interesting people around the world.
Last year, Michelle Marshall left a comment voting for Kickcan & Conkers in a blogging competition. She said that my blog was " a visual treasure box for young and old alike". I love that, and in time I really hope that my little shop will be like that too.
It's very small, but it's a start. You will see that I do not follow fashion, I never have done and never will. I love so many things, old and new. I've featured quite a few of the items in my shop on K&C before, long ago. They've appeared on other sites since but I still like them as much because they're different.
The people I have chosen to work with are all people I admire. I believe they have something special and will go far. I'd like to thank them for their patience and support.
Kickcan & Conkers isn't just for kids, it's quirky, nostalgic, design-led and will hopefully make you smile.
So, I hope you won't be too disappointed by its size and that you will look forward to all the other wonderful things I will be adding as of tomorrow...
