their stuff is great and if you live local you can go in and buy it and have a look it's an amazing place :D
you can buy single items in their shop but not on line they sell things that are really hard to get wooden eggs, wooden honey dippers all unusual intresting things as well as normal books puppets etc :D

we just went to the local £ shop and picked up as many cheap things we could find that had interesting textures, so it was a real mishmash of shaving brushes, coasters, toothbrushes, napkin rings, loofah, whisk, spoons - anything cheap basically and the kids loved it.

Have started building mine!

Was doing my Asda shop online so added a few random things that they had cheap:

Loofah
Pumice Stone
Balloon Whisk
Wooden Spoon
Rubber Ball
Flannel
Velvet Powder Puff
Measuring Spoons
3-Bell Shaker
Mini Feather Boa

Tomorrow I am going to have a look in some local charity shops for some small wooden & leather things.
I want to get a shaving brush, pine cone, some cotton reels, not sure what else .. plus I want a lidded basket to keep it all in :D
