Dual purpose items are essential for British living.  There is always a rush in the summer months to buy things for our window of outdoor living but we say make sure you can use your goodies all year round!  This week we’ve chosen 8 all season products for our unpredictable British isles.

All seasons item no 1: Traditionally made wooden serving boards

Traditionally designed and handmade in Britain our sycamore serving boards are perfect for summer picnics in the garden and large family gatherings.  These boards are also perfect indoors in the winter months for cheese and wine feasts.  Available in four fantastic over sized shapes.
