New summer trading hours
Summer is on its way so we have extended our trading hours. We are now open Saturdays from 10 to 5 and Sundays from 11 to 5. If these times don’t suit, please contact us to make an appointment.

Our online store
Sadly, there have been some technical difficulties getting our online store for our Moroccan wares back up. We were assured these would be resolved a few months ago, but this was not to be. We’ll try another approach soon. In the meantime you can always ‘send an enquiry’ on the item you would like to buy and let us know your postcode so we can let you know the cost of freight. Images d’Orient items can still be purchased online.

Facebook
We’ll continue to post items of intererst on Facebook including monthly specials. So, do¬† and you’ll get our posts.
