Poorly Paul

So Paul is not feeling too good so I'm taking advantage of the Easter break and we will be taking a couple of days off to re-coup and re-charge.

I will be at the Thursday market and Saturday market in Southend on Sea this week so you can catch up on your incense there.

if you need to talk to us don't hesitate to contact us on

Mother's Day Special Offers & More

So that dreaded March wind has cancelled yet another Thursday Market in Southend this week so apologies to everyone who was waiting to see is this week.  Hopefully all being well we will be at the market as usual on Thursday the 21st March.

But on a good note we will be at our first show of the year at Cressing Temple Barns all weekend in the craft Marque on the 16th & 17th March so if you'd like a great day out with lots of food and gifts this is a show to go to especially if you are after that unusual present for your mum this Mother's Day.

Plus we haven't stopped with those special ideas to help you with your Mothers Day ideas.  We have some beautiful hand made and painted Fair Trade wooden sculpted British birds made by a lovely family run business in Thailand.

We only have a limited amount and we will be adding one to any purchase over £20 until we run out.

We have Blue Tit, Bull Finch, Chaffinch, Crested Tit, Goldcrest, Great Tit, Nuthatch and Wren.


So we got an email today stating we could not trade tomorrow at the Thursday market Grrrrrr.

But not to be put down Paul and myself thought how can we treat our customers who would faithfully turn up rain or shine (including wind), and buy from a little pop up shop.

So we are putting our heads together to sort out a fantastic treat "Flash Sale" for this weekend.  So keep checking the web site over the next 24 hours for some great deals perfect for getting that Mother's Day treat.

DMRLS Gift Wrapping Service

Our Mothers Day gift wrapping service has gone down well and Paul is being a busy bee getting them all done for the special day.

But gift wrapping doesn't have to stop at Mothers Day.  We will also gift wrap for any special occasion. 

All you need to do, when ordering, is pick your gifts, greeting card and wrapping paper and we will do the rest.  Remember to add your own special message that I will write into your card for you and the different shipping address if it is a gift to be sent direct.

Depending on size we will either dispatch the gift wrapped item and card with your special message in a brown box or our larger DMRLS black box.

We do not charge to gift wrap and our postage is FREE within the UK.

What makes it so special is the gift, card and wrapping paper is all your choice so the gift comes from the heart.

MOTHERS DAY Gift Wrapping Service

Mothers day is a special day so make it amazing by using dmrls gift wrapping service.

The perfect Incense Burner

The perfect Incense Burner

If you have been burning incense for a while you probably have used the round flat incense burner or the long stick burner, both are great to use but unfortunately they are always prone to dropping the ash on your furniture or worse in reach of children and animals.

The perfect solution is a soapstone incense burner/diffuser/tower.  Not only is the carved soapstone a beautiful decorative piece but it diffuses the fragrance of your chosen incense around your home. 

They were originally made to do just this perfect job but in the west we love them not only for this perfect incense burner technique but that all the ash from the incense stick or cone is kept safely within the confines of the burner.  Plus because the tower covers your incense stick or cone the safety element for children and animals is far better.

You can get your incense burner in natural, coloured and carved a lot or a little.  The great thing about soapstone is no two are ever alike although the basic pattern will be the same.  The stone retains a lot of its natural colour which sometimes shows through the paint and, because they are all carved by hand they are all subtly different so your incense burner will always be unique to you.
