Kitty of Devon is a natural range of skin products from Kath Blackmore. Inspired by her love of experimentation and her disillusion with the skin care industry, Kath combined her years of research with a resolve to create skin care that doesn’t use chemicals.
Her inspiration comes from her passion for natural plant-based skin care and an aversion to the mainstream skin care industry, which she believes lacks integrity and honest. And she’s on a natural quest, she says on her site a number of products in the shops label themselves ‘natural’ but on closer inspection contain controversial ingredients.
It’s a quest that has seen her track down a fairtrade women’s co-operative in eastern Ghana, for the shea butter she uses in her facecream.

My business is www.harrietjonesclothing.co.uk and I am a 16-year-old designer from Plymouth, Devon.
Our aim is to supply the discerning customer with authentic 1960s, 1970s styled clothing together with hand picked vintage items.
We are also the sole (soul…?) UK stockist for England Belongs Clothing who bring to the scene a traditional style in limited numbers to keep things exclusive.
We have over 30 years experience in the scooter scene and now want to put something back into something that has given us so much.
We endeavour to provide the best possible service at the lowest possible prices not only locally but across the UK, EU and worldwide. Indeed we already have customers from Torquay to Toronto and Paignton to Perth and are particularly proud to be selling to Italy… the home of style!
This goes to show that the scooter scene is still active throughout the world and not confined to the British coastal resorts as in days gone by.
As genuine scooterists ourselves we have a good insight into what people want and very much stand by our motto ‘We Don’t Sell What We Wouldn’t Wear’ – if it’s not right for us it’s not right for our customers!
