Our Last Ever Warehouse Sale


Yep, it’s time to properly clear our warehouse and what better time to do so than at Christmas. It’s a win win situation: You get bargains galore which will make you VERY popular this Christmas and I make a bit of money. What’s there not to like.

As we’ve been in our warehouse for, oh, a very long time, there will be some real treasures. This may also be the VERY LAST TIME some of our products will be available, like EVER!!

Prices start from as little as £ 1.00 and we have all the usual favourites, Pigeon Light (seconds) from only £ 25.00 and the very last few Plant Cups, also from only £ 25.00. We also have bone-china mugs from only £ 2.50 and wooden wall clocks from £ 10.00 so pretty much something for everyone. It’s your One-Stop Christmas Bargain Shop!!

On the weekends we will serve Gluehwein and Lebkuchen and once I had a few Gluehweins I may even burst into a Christmas Carol or two.

So, come by one last time and and shop shop shop, or just come by to say hello and goodbye!!

Time for Change


We have some VERY BIG news for you.

After almost 13 years of making, distributing and retailing lovely products, we have decided to close our online shop at the end of this year. It’s been an amazing 13 years but …. all good things must come to an end and the time feels right for change and some new adventures.

Theo will continue to exist as a blog and, later next year, evolve into an online magazine amongst other things so we won’t completely disappear from the face of the earth.

Our online CLOSING DOWN SALE in now on with 25% OFF EVERYTHING. Simply enter discount code BYEFORNOW in Your Basket and voila, 25% OFF EVERYTHING!!  

We will FOR ONE LAST TIME hold our ANNUAL BETTER THAN HALF PRICE SAMPLE & SECONDS WAREHOUSE SALE which starts on Thursday the 27th of November and will last until Wednesday the 10th of December. There will be discounts of up to 90% while we are properly clearing out the cupboards. So, put the date in your diary but more info on that soon. 

Our online sale will continue until we have nothing left to sell.

Remember it’s now less than 50 days until Christmas and as everything costs 25% less, you can shop 25% more!!!





Olympiaturm Munich

I think when I retire I will go and travel the world to visit every single telecommunications tower there is. That doesn’t mean I can’t visit them now, so when I was in Munich recently one of the first things I did was go up the Munich Olympiaturm. Although planned before Munich was awarded the 1972 Olympic games it was integrated into the Olympic park and has amazing views over the stunning Olympic stadium, Olympic pool and other buildings as well as the whole city. In fact you can see the Alps on a clear day I have been told.


Bauhaus Dessau

I recently fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams and visited the holy shrine of design and architecture: The Bauhaus in Dessau. When in 1925 the Bauhaus moved from Weimar to Dessau, Walter Gropius, the then director of the Bauhaus, designed the building and it’s still there today, looking as wonderful as always. In fact it must have been quite the sight back in 1926 when it first opened.

Theo @ designjunction

Thank you to you all you lovely people who came to see us at our little pop-up at designjunction during the London Design Festival.



Even though I went to Australia as my main hoilday earlier this year I still managed to squeeze in the odd long weekend away here and there.

For the last weekend in August I finally managed to cycle for 4 days along the river Ruhr, from the source to where it meets The Rhine, all 230km of it (well, almost all of it as it bucketed it down for one day so we only managed 25km that day before giving up).

So, we started at the source near the town of Winterberg

Tile tastic!!!

I’ve just come back from a lovely little weekend break to Lisbon which was great, unfortunately the weather wasn’t too great.

Thankfully the city is full of wonderfully cheerful tiles (or to use the local lingo, loads of wonderfully cheerful azulejos) on the buildings which I clearly had to phoptograph. Here is just a small selection of the countless pictures I took. All I need now is a house I can cover with those tiles, sorry, azulejos.

I don’t know how many of you know Struwwelpeter. Struwwelpeter is a collection of stories of misbehaving children and the disasterous consequences which followed. Think Grimm’s fairytales….but much Grimmer (Ha…you see what I did there!!).

Well, when I was in Frankfurt recently I stumbled upon the Struwwelpeter Museum. On 4 floors you can learn everything about Struwwelpeter, Suppen Kaspar, Hans-Guck-in-die-Luft as well as the author Heinrich Hoffmann.

As a native German of some age now, I remember these stories all too well and consequently must have been a complete angel as a child as I’m sure my parents can confirm. Ahem.
