MAGNETIC BRUSH CLIP

This handy little clip attaches to the top of paint cans and securely holds wet brushes using magnets (perfect for tea breaks!).

PURDY TWIN PACK PAINT BRUSHES

Purdy are makers of the finest handcrafted paintbrushes and this twin pack offers a great saving on 5 brushes. The set contains 3 Monarch Elite brushes which are ideal for interior and exterior use and are designed to pick up and lay off more paint for greater productivity. The set also contains 2 Pro-Extra brushes which are designed to hold more paint and are made using the finest filaments. The perfect present for those who do a lot of decorating and like to use the finest tools.

FROGTAPE

No toolbox should be without a roll of FrogTape. A great masking tape for creating straight lines with emulsion paint.

PURDY BRUSH COMB

Another great piece of kit for the tool bag. This brush comb by Purdy will extend the life of paintbrushes and makes cleaning much easier. Removes stubborn paint and straightens wet bristles so they dry straight.

Not sure what to get the practical person who has everything? This is the answer! Works as a filling knife, scraper, putty remover, hammer, nail head ripper, roller cleaner, paint can opener and more. It's an extremely durable tool and a necessity for both professionals and keen DIYers.

ACORN DOOR WEDGE

We love these door wedges – they are a modern classic. Made from oak and featuring a beautiful acorn detail. Designed and made in Great Britain.

BOOT SCRAPER

This is a serious boot scraper to come home to after a long walk in the woods. A heavy cast iron finish that will withstand the toughest of dirt. 

OAK WELLY BOOT RACK

After cleaning your boots off you'll need somewhere to keep them in order. Our oak boot racks can be easily mounted to the wall and allow wellies to dry upside-down (preventing damp!).

SHAKER PEG RAILS

These shaker-style peg rails are a 'Relics' classic. Beautifully crafted in oak and available in 2, 4 and 6 pegs – perfect for hanging hats, coats and bags.

CLOTHES RACK AIRER

Our favourite 'Autumn Essential'. Similar to the traditional 'Sheila Maid', these airers are super handy to have in the utility room or kitchen. Extremely easy to adjust using the pully and hook system. Great for hanging towels and damp clothing before sitting down to relax!
