Hampton Blue Mobile Boutique

Hampton Blue Mobile Boutique

We’re so excited to let you know that Hampton Blue has it’s very own mobile accessories and gift boutique now! We took an old ambulance that was no longer in service, gutted it out and revamped it Hampton Blue style.

The plan now is to use it at various events across Northern Ireland and Ireland, so keep an eye out for us on the road and give us a beep! Hope you like it and find it a fun way to shop.

Belfast Mela 2012

August 30, 2012

The Belfast Mela, Northern Ireland’s largest intercultural arts festival took place last Sunday in Botantic Gardens, Belfast.  Hampton Blue were delighted to have a stall at this great event for the second year in a row, along with loads of other fantastic local businesses.

With over 30000 people attending, it turned out to be the biggest Mela to date.  The crowds were entertained with dancing and music from cultures around the world.  There were food stalls selling cuisine from Thailand, Poland, India and Spain, a global souk, various craft tents for kids and so much more.  The sun shone on the day (which has been a rare sight this summer) and the buzz was just amazing.   It was great to see so many people from different cultural backgrounds coming together and embracing Northern Ireland’s cultural diversity.  We can’t wait to take part in the Belfast Mela next year.

A Big Thank You!

April 5, 2011

Hi Folks

Well, while I’ve been busy with baby no 3 and dealing with all the other aspects of running Hampton Blue, Antonia Chitty from ACPR has been doing a great job of looking after our Hampton Blue blog.  Now that I’m kind of back into a routine again (more like organised chaous) it’s now time for me to take over the reigns and take the huge leap into blogging!!  So please bare with me folks, while I learn yet another new skill (I’ve been learning a lot of new stuff lately) and hopefully I can produce some interesting posts.

Just wanted to say thanks so much Antonia for doing a fantastic job over the past year and I can only hope I’m a quick learner and live up to the great standard you set.

Best Wishes


Gift wrapping takes the strain out of shopping

October 13, 2010

I only really embraced online shopping last Christmas and, if I’m honest, it was mainly from desperation. I’d left the gift-buying to the last minute and had started to panic about running out of time. So I hit the computer and… it was bliss.

It may not be festive, but shopping from the comfort of my own home was so much less stressful. And with so many companies doing gift-wrapping and gift-cards, I could have the presents delivered direct. You know, like Father Christmas!

With all of our jewellery wrapped in tissue paper and put in a blue organza bag with a Hampton Blue label, you never need squeeze down a chimney – or rather a high street – again.

Prima Baby loves our dinner sets

July 21, 2010

Prima Baby magazine loves our Disaster Designs Dinner Sets!

Not that we’re surprised because the cute melamine sets are dishwasher safe and feature a compartmented and inscribed (‘I scream, you scream, we all scream for icecream’) plate, bowl, cup, fork and spoon, presented in a box. They’re available in Monkey or Elephant designs.

“Great for a gift, or to brighten up toddler mealtimes,” said Prima. We couldn’t agree more.

Hampton Blue in the Media

May 31, 2010

You know that Hampton Blue offers a great range of gifts for men, women and children, but not everyone has got the message yet so we’re always pleased when we’re able to spread the word about what we offer. Amanda, supermum and multiple entrepreneur  has featured Hampton Blue on her Superwoman Wannabe blog where you can read about how we started the business.
