'Home is the nicest word there is' - Laura Ingalls Wilder
Our store is based in the downstairs of an old needle factory, in a small market town. We buy from local makers, old-fashioned homeware companies, and friends we've met along the way. And 'home' is more than a concept to us.
Our paths have been varied and tumultuous, but from the start, we have been bonded by the way we feel about home. When we began to plan our business, we knew this had to be at the heart of what we did. Not just a homestore, but a place to share the warmth, the rest, the good times that home had always meant to us. And that's what we did. We made a 'Good Times Homestore'.
So much so, that in his speech at our wedding, Emily's dad used our business partnership as a metaphor for our marital one. He described the care, the attention that Will puts in to each piece of furniture he makes; the steadfast nature with which Emily fills a home with the best parts of her life; and how, in this way, they would make a success of their ventures.
