The Feather and Twigs journey continues in good hands

A new era for ‘Feather & Twigs' 

Hello, we are Catherine and Vinny, the new owners of Feather and Twigs. We are so excited about taking on this new venture.   Martin and Nicola the previous owners have been wonderful in passing over their knowledge and enthusiasm of the business, which they have built up over the past 4 years.  Their passion is contagious and so we are delighted to maintain the strong vision they set.  

It is our intention to continue to source high quality homemade handcrafted art, crafts, gifts made by specialist Artisan makers. Promoting the back story and provenance of every Artisan we work with will be an important part of our evolution. 

We aim to encapsulate the heritage of this country across our range of unique hand crafted products.  We will search for the "Best of British"; organic, sustainable and ethically sourced art, products and unique gifts. We have a particular love of nature and animals and the local countryside and hope these are reflected in the products we sell.

We are both Lancashire born and bred and have lived for the past 16 years in Croston. We have both learned to love everything about our village, the surrounding countryside but most of all its people. We want to invest in Feather and Twigs' future by continuing to provide stylish, thoughtfully chosen, handcrafted homewares and gifts to our local community as well as a wider online audience who are interested in both Lancashire and British Artisan makers.  

About us

Catherine will take a front of house role in the shop with Liz and Hayley from The Secret Closet and will also liaise with the artisans, and once we are up and running will deal with all things digital as she is an experienced marketeer who has worked in digital marketing for the past 10 years.  



Vinny is a craftsman working with both metal and wood, and as a qualified Coachbuilder, using these skills, he hopes to build and restore furniture and handcrafted items for the home. 



Both keen travellers within the UK we love to meet the skilled artisans where understand the story behind the products we sell and add small scale handcrafted, organic and sustainable products to our portfolio.  Every product you purchase will be individually hand-wrapped by us with the love and attention it deserves.



We are always on the look out for new artisans and relish any chance to add new products to our range. If you'd like to be updated on what's new, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, or click on this link to be added to our mailing list.  Alternatively, please get in touch by emailing us at
