About Us

'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.

The Good Times Homestore is a helpful home and lifestyle store, run by husband and wife, Will and Emily, from their little Lewes shop and their roomy seaside workshop.
The business operates as a dual model. The woodworking and design studio, Perrymans Fine Woodworking, is sister company to the home and lifestyle shop, The Good Times Homestore. At the shop you can view and buy current ready-mades, discuss bespoke projects, and fill out commission details forms.
We sell useful goods for your home | Sourced with care | Made for purpose.
