Searching for the perfect gift for babies and little people? In need of some fresh games that will entertain on rainy days? It’s all at In The Bag. Quite literally.
For 15 years In The Bag has delighted customers with a great variety of gifts, jewellery, toys, clothing, and homewares. There’s something for everyone!
Owner Edwina Chartres keeps her keen eyes open at all the quality toy and trade fairs, but is also often approached in person by designers who appreciate her penchant for great finds. Edwina’s philosophy is simple – if she likes the item, it goes into her store.
Indeed with products from some 150 suppliers, that’s a lot of liking! But it’s easy to see why – irresistible Paddington Bears, Schoenhut red pianos, Mr and Mrs Potato Head, timeless Moulin Roty toys, Djeco puzzles and creative kits, cute-as-a-button Kewpie dolls… The store is brimming with endless ideas and creative challenges. But it’s the diversity of choice that really makes In The Bag the spot to go.
Edwina and her team take the thinking out of finding gifts. They’re particularly savvy at getting that something special without spending a fortune, which Edwina believes is particularly appropriate for school friend birthday parties. In her words, ‘there’s just no need to go overboard’ when you can get a lovely, thoughtful gift that’s sure to be a hit without putting much of a dint in the piggy bank.
What we love at In The Bag
Norsu Baby Money Box – isn’t the saying that one eats an elephant one bite at a time? Well here’s a cute concept that has little people saving – a pocketful at a time! Why wait until a traditional piggy bank is full? Your little ‘saver’ might be in high school by then! This way they get to learn how to save – and be rewarded – in small steps!
Jellycat Bashful Bunny – we could go on about how gorgeous this character is but really; those exquisite ears say it all, don’t they?
Have You Met Miss Jones Beetle Lamp – no? Well that’s probably because she’s out zooming around town. Or at least she would if she had a beetle like this! Sure to brighten up the rooms of all little motoring enthusiasts!
Delight Décor Mobile Spaceman – for a sweet glow and even sweeter outer-space dreaming!
Tigeroy Bean Bag – we know we’re supposed to focus on the kids but we have a confession… We have exactly this bean bag on our patio and fall into it once the little kids have been put to bed. Works a treat!
