In the Press!

October 11, 2012

We would just like to take this opporunity to thank some of the national and local magazines and papers who have very kindly featured some of our products in their publications recently.  This kind of press coverage for a small, family run business like Hampton Blue is just priceless.

October’s issue of Prima magazine very kindly featured 0ur Wild and Wolf  Travel Card holder  in their Travel Notes Section.

Travel Card Holder, £6.95

Essentials Magazine have also liked our new products and they featured our Disaster Designs Bon Voyage Wash Bag in their September issue.  The whole Bon Voyage range, which includes a satchel, purses, make up bags and a mini bag, seems to be going down a storm with our customers.  Check out the rest of the products from Disaster Designs on our website.

Valentine’s Day? Be a scarlet woman!

February 14, 2011

So you didn’t get any Valentine’s love? No cards, no flowers, no chocolates? Me neither. But that’s okay, because I don’t believe in it anyway (and my 6-year-old called me “the adorablest” this morning).

But you don’t need other people (even 6-year-olds) to tell you how great you are, you can simply tell yourself. Or treat yourself to a gorgeous gift, like this Claret Red Silk Brooch Purse by Nadia Minkoff.

Beautiful new Lisbeth Dahl purse

September 1, 2010

Typical. Once I start writing about the inevitable early arrival of autumn, the sun comes out. Not that I’m complaining. Although I am rather looking forward to adding this new Lisbeth Dahl Purple Knitted Purse to my autumn wardrobe.

Isn’t it gorgeous? I was worried at first it was a coin purse – which I do find hard to resist, but don’t find to be much use since I need to carry more than coins with me almost everywhere I go – but it’s actually 22 x 12 cms, which makes it almost a clutch and big enough for the essentials.

Fair Trade fairy gifts

August 25, 2010

These fairy gifts are not only adorable, they’re also fair trade.

This tooth fairy pouch is the perfect place to keep your child’s tooth safe while awaiting a magical visit. The attached label reads:

‘Place your tooth in my pocket
I’ll make magic while you sleep.
When you awake from your dreams
there may be a treat you can keep.’

Much better than the bit of loo paper we used when ours lost their teeth!

This ‘Fairy Twinkletoes’ purse features an embroidered fairy with sparkly feet and is the perfect place to keep ‘Fairy Treasures’ (as it says on the zip pull). Either that or the money received from the tooth fairy!

And at just £5 it would make a good party favour too.

Nothing says summer like butterflies

August 18, 2010

Although we haven’t had much in the way of summer weather (yet! I’m still hopeful!), we have had more than our fair share of butterflies. I never get bored of them and thankfully neither do designers.

I love this set of 3 white metal butterfly hooks – a great way to prettify something that’s usually boring. (I also love this Blue Rose Patch Purse and Sequinned Butterfly Purse. Now where’s the sun?
