We were thrilled to be contacted by the wonderful Kathryn at Exquisitely British Art to set up an exclusive offering for WWKD readers in the US and Canada for the first time. For those of you not familiar with Exquisitely British, it’s a fabulous design company run by Kathryn Scuby out of Yorkshire in the UK. They treasure impeccable design by taking a handful of vintage charm, a pinch of romance, a touch of class, a silhouette of history and a healthy dose of sparkle to bring our customers a tastefully tailored product. Kathryn collects vintage memorabilia and transforms it into unique art pieces. She sums it up well on her website:
When people look at Memoirs they see old and new memories, laughter, tears, wisdom and our journey through life along with a healthy dose of sparkle.
And who doesn’t love a dose of sparkle? Certainly not us! We are sure that the gifts Kate selects to give to her family and friends are much like the gifts available at Exquisitely British – unique, classy and fun. With that in mind, we are thrilled to share with you some exclusive pieces available to WWKD readers.
