Alongside the products for sale customers have the opportunity to find out about the stories and making processes behind the homewares and gifts they are buying and the people who made them.  Interviews with the designers involved can be found on the website, studio photo stories and Best of British features. "We want our customers to know as much about the product as possible before buying it and we want to give our suppliers a platform to tell their story as well as sell".
