Spotted in Cornwall…

10 Oct

Cornwall 113 - Copy

It’s amazing what you can stumble upon in Cornwall. Right outside the door of the National Trust cottage in which we were staying was a film crew of thousands shooting scenes for the latest series of Poldark, played by, as if you didn’t know, Aidan Turner.

And would you believe it, Aidan didn’t have a coat rack and yes, he would like to order a Hooked on Hooks’ one…. Well, all right….In my dreams….

…on holiday.

Every dog has its day….Every coat rack maker has his holiday…Mine starts Sat September 26th and runs until Wed October 7th.

Thanks to an I-Pad, and Wi-Fi at the National Trust cottage where we are staying, I can still be contacted at hello@hookedon hooks.co.uk.

Any items bought from the Hooked on Hooks’ PRODUCTS page will be packed and sent the day after my return – MANY APOLOGIES for the delay.

Happy holidays…

Pictured is the handmade Hooked on Hooks’ hat & coat rack that was kindly donated to the National Trust by R.G. Sharp for Stourhead’s Harry’s Story exhibition, currently running at Stourhead House in Wiltshire.  Harry was the son of Henry and Alda Hoare, who tragically died in the First World War. Dating back to the early 1700s, the house was one of the earliest Palladian-style mansions to be built in England.

Handmade racks of hooks from Hooked on Hooks

Just a few of the many different types of hooks used to make Hooked on Hooks' handmade coat racks

Just a few of the many different types of hooks used to make Hooked on Hooks’ handmade coat racks

Anyone who’s ever tried to buy a coat rack will tell you the same thing – the market is flooded with cheap and nasty, utilitarian, not-made-in-England eyesores. Enter Hooked on Hooks.

Yes, Hooked on Hooks’ hat & coat racks do cost more than a fiver. But each and every one is meticulously made by hand. Most are made from recycled wood. Almost all are one-off designs. (Even repeated pieces never have exactly the same wood, because wood is wood and every section is different). They can be made to your exact specifications. (Type of wood. Length and width. Colour. Number and type of hook, etc).
