Anorak sample sale

Old samples. Off cuts. Factory seconds. Discontinued stock. Until last weekend, we didn’t realise quite so much of it was clogging up our storage area. So on the weekend, we packed our barrow and trotted the 8 footsteps from our office to North Cross Road Market in London’s East Dulwich. Our bright and cheerful prints coupled with the plentiful bargains on offer certainly captured the public interest and before long we were inundated with sample seekers from all walks of life. Here’s pictures of our Trotter-esque adventures. We’ll be back this Friday and Saturday if you missed out.

Picking in the rain

Those of you familiar with our berry inspired poem (see below) from the Anorak catalogue will know just how mad about berry picking we are. Well, it look likes Ez from Creature Comforts is even madder about berry picking, opting to go hunter-gathering for blueberries last Saturday. In torrential rain. One word: RESPECT.

Beside the seaside

Time for some Anorak holiday snaps. Last weekend,  Laurie & Matt darted off to sunny Hayling Island to the family caravan. Activities included a BBQ, sea swimming, a spot of badminton and a ferry trip to the Isle of Wight. Here’s the highlights…

Massive picnic table in Bracknell

Look! It’s Britain’s longest ever picnic table and it’s just been built at Lily Hill Park in Bullbrook, Bracknell. At a whopping 18.4 metres or 60ft long, it sits more than 80 people. Now that’s some picnic.

RSPB summer survey

The RSPB would like to know what sings, chirps, snuffles and barks in your garden. So over the coming days, they’re asking us all to play twitcher and count the visiting wildlife. It’s for their Make Your Nature Count survey which hopes to build a better picture of the wildlife that visits gardens in summer. To take part, simply spend an hour in the garden between 5-13 June and count what you see. Then record the highest number of each species seen at any one time. Best get spotting Anorakers.
