Those of you who follow our Instagram feed will see that there are exciting times ahead for us and we are about to open our very own bricks and mortar shop in Harborne.
The concept of Hedgerow Stories is a lifestyle store with a florist within it - where provenance is important and everything we choose to sell has its own unique back story. Ostensibly it is made up of things that we love. I (Rachel) adore flowers, interiors and beautiful objects and Birmingham has such a creative energy at the moment that it feels ready for something a little different. Along with our flowers and artwork we've hand-picked a collection of the things we love to own and give as gifts - scents, textiles, ceramics, skincare, stationery, homewares and giftware. Some of our brands are local to Harborne and the Midlands, such as Honest skincare and house coats from local designhouse, Chalk, whilst others hail from further afield including exquisite stationery from Japan, ceramics from East London, the coolest kites from New York, lighting and furniture from Denmark and the all natural anti-ageing skin supplement Lumity that Helena Christensen swears by.
We've got a great team of people helping us with the fit out and I've been able to twist loads of arms for so we can get in before Christmas. Such an exciting adventure
