Land Tales will be back at Host of Leyton for our second pop up shop, from Tuesday 5 – Sunday 10 March.

It might officially be winter for another couple of weeks, but we're getting ready to welcome spring, with a seasonal store full of well-crafted homewares and gifts, all made in the UK.

Mother's Day is early this year, on Sunday 10th, so if you need to treat someone special we'll have plenty of thoughtful gift options, including:

Breakfast goods
There'll be some beautifully crafted ceramic tableware including mugs from Clare Spindler, Pottery West and Florence Ceramics, whose popular dimple cups will be making a return. I've added a small number of Pottery West's gorgeous cereal bowls to the mix, in three glaze options from pale powder blue to charcoal.

I've stocked up on Northamptonshire-based Selwyn House's hand-turned wooden tableware, including their English Oak plates which are a perfect pastry size.

You'll also find 100% Irish linen napkins and tea towels in a mix of neutral and brighter tones, made in East London by LOUAL.

If you'd like to put together a little breakfast gift bag, we'll have London Borough of Jam preserves, Townsend Farm apple juice, Nibs Etc granola, and Good and Proper Tea.


Homework candles

A modern take on ancient Chinese philosophy, each Homework candle is inspired by one of the five elements found in Traditional Chinese Medicine. I loved seeing which of the five elements each of our customers were drawn to at the last pop up, and I'm curious to know if the changing seasons will have any influence this time around.

Gifts for gardeners
I think the letterpress printed seed boxes crafted in Suffolk by Mabel & Co would make a great gift for any gardener. We'll also be well stocked with Austin Austin hand cream to soften hard working hands, and some gorgeous botanical stationery from Annie Brougham.

And if you're looking for something extra special, Edinburgh-based ceramicist Celia Wood has made two of her Vegetable Picker plates for us, featuring her hand-painted line work in joyful spring colours.

Skincare and self care
Our favourite facial oils from local Leyton heroes Neighbourhood Botanicals will be making a return, as will soaps and skincare products from Dook, Austin Austin, and Walthamstow-based Soapsmith.

We're also welcoming Farm Soap Co into the Land Tales range. Based in Dorset, they produce botanical soaps and natural skincare in small batches using traditional artisan methods. And we'll have some of Manchester-based Hannah Shkandrij's hand-embroidered lavender sachets.

You'll find chocolate from three micro businesses who each craft their chocolate from bean to bar here in the UK: Glasgow's Bare Bones, Liverpool's TABLE, and a new addition to the range, Somerset-based Harth Chocolate.

Local flowers
Our friends Borrowed Light Studio up in Walthamstow have sourced us some locally grown Avalanche narcissus. It's one of my favourite flowers - the scent is pure spring.

We'll be open Tuesday to Sunday, and staying open late on Thursday evening for some drinks and late night shopping.

Hope to see you there!
