Sally Pointer - Heritage education
bringing you objects, skills, and inspiration from the past, to enrich the future
Welcome to our Online Shop
The fastest way to find products is by using the dropdown options within the Shop tab which will take you to Historic Hats, Stockings, Plague Rats etc. There is also an 'In Stock' section for items that don't need making especially for you.
Gareth's death in 2021 has understandably altered the range of products and services available.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, everything in the shop is made by Sally (with a little bit of help sometimes from long-suffering family). Many items are made to order, and whilst we pride ourselves on working on orders promptly, we do hit busy times and sometimes there is a slightly longer lead time than specified. We'll always try to keep you up to date with any anticipated delay.
Please note: for overseas orders the maximum package size the shop currently handles is 2kg. Larger orders may override it showing £0 when you order, and we can sort out postage at cost as soon as we know exactly how much your parcel will weigh.
Current Lead Times: Please see individual pages for current lead times on hats and stockings. It can get very busy at some points in the year and the longer you can give us to make your items, the better. We're often faster than estimated, but we only have one pair of hands.
If you are looking for Sally's book, its currently out of print but copies can still be bought via Amazon and other online booksellers.
