Dining Belts coming to the website!

Dining Belts NEW to the website!

A small but mighty, and quite cheeky, piece of sturdy elastic is stitched into place behind the buckle, providing just a little bit of 'give' where one might need it most! We are, of course, thinking weddings and other important occasions, where one might be socially required to finish that special meal, that the family and friends have so carefully and thoughtfully provided. Well, it would be rude not to...

Bending and lifting a lot through the course of the day, could also be made a touch more comfortable with a belt of this design.

Our new web launch discount code can be used on these; just enter NEW10 at the checkout!

Let's go shopping...

A message from the organisers:

Due to weather conditions the Fore Street Flea Sept 23rd will no longer take place on Sunday 23rd September. This decision has been made by the organisers due to the health and safety of both stakeholders and customers.

Should stall holders wish to be refunded, this can be collected from Monday 24th September from Willow Hilson, Vintage Boutique on Fore Street. If you do not collect your refund within 14 days this will be donated to Exeter Foodbank
Indie Exeter are very excited to launch the 2nd Fore Street Flea of 2018, on Sunday 23rd September from 12-4pm.
The forecast is wet so Bring a Brolly and expect a fabulous range of gazebo stall holders including bric-à-brac, craft, plants, a wonderful array of food along with a vintage car display and much more!

We can't wait to see you!

Guess the name of the Cabin Boy and you could win a prize! It's 50p a go, in aid of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) for Exeter Pirate Day, a week on Saturday. Quick, pop instore before all the best names are taken!

There's a chance to win a bottle of bubbly (that's for the grown ups) or a pirate playset consisting of a treasure chest with a bit of loot and a convertible book/playmat/ship (for the not so grown ups).

Exeter Pirate Day falls on September 15th this year, when the local pirate fraternity come out to play in the City Centre and collect kind donations for the RNLI in return for a shanty or three. You can help give them a head start by trying your luck in this competition.

Pop instore to exchange a Piece of Eight (or 50p) for a chance to win. The list of names to choose from is inside and our Cabin Boy is looking forward to seeing you!

The Belt Makers at Exeter Christmas Market

The Belt Makers at Exeter Christmas Market

Exeter's hugely popular Christmas market on Cathedral Green will, for the first time, be operated by Exeter Cathedral themselves. This year, focusing on the West Front of the Cathedral, the market still has a ‘Continental’ feel but also enables customers to support local businesses and performers.

An exciting mix of local and continental traders, showcasing the best of festive food, crafts and gifts, will be open for the full market duration.

The Exeter Business Improvement District (BID) contains over 640 businesses and this year the Exeter BID teamed up with the Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market to enable local business to operate at the market for a limited trading period, in the 'BID Village'. We are one of them and are very excited to be part of it. As ever, we will be able to accept cash, cards (including American Express) and of course the Exeter Pound, which only local independent businesses are able to be part of.

The Fore Street shop will be open as well during 2-17th December but will need to close between 12-1pm for changeover! Sorry for any inconvenience... we are happy to arrange for you to collect orders from us at the market, do please just let us know.
