how about howkapow?

I've featured the treasures from Howkapow many many times in the last few years.

So I was sad to find out that Rog and Cat were closing down. However I was delighted to read, that they have had so many people sending them love and asking them not to close, that they have decided to see see if anyone would like to take up the mantle, buy the shop and continue running the Howkapow website! If you're interested, you should drop an email to and they will take things from there.

In the meantime there is a closing down sale on, so you might want to pop over and support them while you have the chance.

I've got my eye on a couple of things starting with this stunning Cloud Flower Necklace by Mexican jewellery designer, Iris De La Torre. Reduced to £48 from £90.

I'm such a sucker for ceramics so I adore this beautiful Blush Pink and 14K Gold Dipped Circle Pendant Necklace, hand-made by Ashlee Meadows. Now only £26 reduced from £52

Who wouldn't want this Mermaid Mini Print by Bristol-based illustrator, Naomi Poppy Wilkinson. Only £10

Or how about this bold fun Circus Mirror upcycled by husband and wife team Richard Holman and Katy Shooter. £90

My favourite item though is a stunning metallic personalised print designed for music lovers by House of Yve. It features your favourite song, in the format of visual soundwaves, in silver foil on thick stone-grey paper.  Enter the song title and artist name when ordering, and they will convert that track into a visual waveform. What you see is the whole song from start to finish. The metallic foil is applied by hand onto beautiful coloured paper. £39.95

Good Luck guys in getting someone to take up the mantle. It's been a pleasure...
