We’re working on it/ Under construction for a few days more…

We love beautiful things from around the world. We find them and bring them here to our shop in Hebden Bridge. We hope you will love them as much as we do.

Come and spend some time in Hebden Bridge, visit our shop, see the hills, walk along the canal, have a meal. If you’re not able to do that right now, come and have a browse in our online shop.

We don’t have all our products online because Eric’s got a book to write and can’t deal with the extra work. But, we do have a selection of nice things. Follow us on Instagram to see new stuff as it comes in!

Some good books together in my shop @brougs.shop. The one on top is @matthewshlian's new book (for which I wrote an essay).

I was visited in the shop today by some frankincense merchants from Oman (it's a very aromatic resin from tree in pic).
.
I'm not convinced of the demand for frankincense in the Calder Valley, so have not placed an order.

Epic sculpture by Honduran artist Denis Elvir, who came to the UK as a refugee in 2019. I saw his work at an exhibition at @northlight_studio, organised by @hebdenbridgeartsfestival.
We drove two pieces over this morning from Halifax, strapped in with seatbelts on the backseat, like two children, lol!
.
Denis' work is very strong and dynamic. When he lived in Honduras, he was represented by 3 galleries. Now, in the UK, he has to start again. Come and check it out. It's for sale obviously!
