Widdop Bingham, the new owners of Stratton, Britain's last vintage powder compact brand, are doing a great job of getting the current designs back to independent retailers like me. Four of the most popular compacts are back up on our Amazon powder compact store, with Strawberry Thief and Forget-me-not added in the next two days. We're working on our website Vanroe to make it easier to use, so will keep all available stock on Amazon for the next month or so. Please bear with us in the meantime.
Widdop Bingham have very kindly invited me to their showroom next week to see the 7,000 other giftware products the company produces. Widdop began as a clock manufacturer in 1883, just down the road from us in Brighouse, West Yorkshire. The company is still run by the great grandsons of the founder, with the fifth generation joining the company in 2008. You can read more and see some lovely vintage photos at Widdop Bingham's website. I'll let you know about the visit next week!
