Metroscope goes to Morocco

On April 21 we fly out to Morocco to buy lots of new stock. We’re very much looking forward to returning to this enchanting country, renewing friendships and looking for new stock that we can delight you with.

Koutoubia mosque in Marrakech
Over the past week or two, we’ve been putting together our shopping list. So far the list includes loads of ceramics, tagines, lanterns, kilim cushions, zellige (mosaic tables), babouches and ottomans. We’ll be on the look-out for new things and we’re planning to visit some small villages with women’s co-ops to see what they have. Berber village

We’d love to hear your suggestions and things that you would like us to buy. So if you have a special order or things we don’t stock now, please let us know before we leave.

Marrakech soukImages d’Orient coasters, key rings, luggage tags and tins
You may have noticed we have been very low on stock of the Images d’Orient goods over recent months. We thought we had heaps to last us until our next order was made and sent, but we didn’t expect the fantastic demand. Obviously you, our customers, and the shops we supply, love them as much as us.

Our latest shipment arrived this week into port and we hope to have our stock by the end of the week. So if you’ve been hanging out for any of these gorgeous, colourful items, check our website or our Facebook page.

Change of trading hours
With the cooler weather starting, we have changed our open door trading hours to Saturdays from 10 to 5 until we leave for Morocco. If Saturdays don’t suit, please call or email us and we’ll be happy to make a time that suits.

Our last trading day before we leave for Morocco will be Saturday 20 April and we will re-open on Saturday June 8. While we are away we are contactable by email
