Adding a blast of colour to the market, Kate’s Flowers dates back to 1921 when Kate’s husband’s great aunt Sophie first started selling flowers from Union Street in Kingston. Today Kate has taken over the family business, running a stall in the Ancient Market and trading every month at Maple Road. Alongside cut flowers she is proud of their specially selected pansies, primulas, geraniums and phalaenopsis orchids which are almost exclusively English.
BeeInspired are passionate beekeepers based in Thames Ditton. Inspired by the benefits of honey and beeswax they have created a sophisticated range of effective and natural cosmetic creams. Blended by hand, the honey and wax are combined with carefully selected natural oils; any synthetic or harmful chemicals are consciously omitted. As well as creams (fragrance free for sensitive skins or with added essential oils) they also produce soaps, lip balms, traditional furniture and leather creams, beeswax candles and delicious honey to eat.
