Crochet Blankets

So the chilly evenings are starting to arrive, why not snuggle down with a crochet blanket...nothing like an evening in watching a movie, and getting under a blanket.

...we have a selection, in various colours and sizes and of course all locally made.




Or leave one in the car just in case of bad weather, and then it will be perfect for a summer picnic next year.

Frenchic Paint

We are now lucky enough to hold a stock of this fabulous paint Frenchic Paint, and if you look around we even have the odd piece of furniture that can be transformed using this paint.

Craft Fair and Alternative Fair

We decided to organise something a little bit different for May and hosted...

The weather was a beautiful sunny day, but very windy, so proved a challenge to the stallholders.  

Here are some photos from the beginning of the day:

Tea anyone?

At Country Matters Hexton you can come and enjoy homemade cake and tea (amongst other items), but did you know you can kit yourself up so that you can go and make tea when you get home ... :)

We have tea pots and tea cosies (or are they cosy's?) in all shapes and sizes, knitted, crochet, sewn, small large - you name it I bet we have it.

We do have cafetiere cosies too :)

Would love to see you soon.

Cases and accessories in matching fabrics


New this year are sets of accessories that include glasses cases - ideal for sunglasses as well as reading glasses, mini coin purses which are suitable for lots of different things...perfect for earphones, maybe keys in a school bag, modesty bags.

Starting with black and white elephants, and now just moved onto pink and white elephants.  Also in vintage style prints and pretty florals.

Pretty triangular lavender bags.

All are great gift ideas for Mother's Day.

A move around - first up patchwork quilts

Check out instagram page Homespun Vintage at Country Matters and Homespun Facebook


A sad neglected blog :)  so thought I would bring it into 2017, since the last post on here, Country Matters has been moved around and a log burner has been installed making it a lot cosier in the winter months.  The tea rooms have always had a roaring fire :)

So what is for sale in Country Matters you may ask....well over the coming posts I will add some pictures of the items that we currently have, clearly you will see all sorts new and locally made, recycled, second hand, craft supplies to just name a few items.


New in this month are beautiful patchwork quilts, these are unique an beautifully made, would make a perfect gift.

and how cute is this.....
