Mrs Middleton's Shop on-line features ranges of Heritage Gift and Homeware products. Designed with a smile and an arched eyebrow- the quotes, illustrations and content all derive from an extraordinary group of people populating Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight in the 1860's. The Freshwater Circle included such luminaries as Charles Darwin, Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), Edward Lear- to name but a few!
With such a unique plethora of characters to draw upon- all of whom were probably drawn to the wild and beautiful landscape for the same reasons that attract those today- it's quite extraordinary to find how many of the things that they said- hold true to the tag-line
(SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE!)
