Hand Carved Gypsy Flowers

Gypsy flowers are decorative wooden flowers that were traditionally made by the travelling community. These flowers are available in differing styles, with either open or closed curled petals, as can be seen from the photograph 

There is a natural variance in the colour as dictated by the woods used in their manufacture, which are typically Hazel, Ash and Willow.

Each flower is individually carved and supplied with a stem of thin Willow or Hazel.



Price Breaks Available For Larger Quantities

Flowers are supplied as separate heads and
stems to minimise shipping damage, all you need to do
 is put the stem in the predrilled hole in the flower base,
style & shape vary considerably due to natural variance.

These flowers are fragile and may suffer some petal loss
in transit for which we cannot be held liable.

Jug pictured is NOT supplied

Whimmy Diddle.

The Whimmy Diddle or YeeHaw as it is also known, is a traditional child's toy that has been enjoyed by children of all ages for many many years. To use the Whimmy Diddle move the rubbing stick against the notched stick to make the propeller spin, with practice and perhaps a little magic, you can make the propeller stop and spin in the other direction, but how?.
