The Fall of the British Isles...

The Fall of the British Isles…

I’m going to spend the fall showing and telling of many of our vendor friends in the UK. I’ve just returned from a marvelous fall trip to England and a visit to the WILLIAM HOLLAND factory.

We arrived in Bath, England to meet our host, who is a resident of Bath. How appropriate that William Holland Baths is located so close to the city of BATH. But first, a personal tour of the city.

 Wouldn’t this make an incredible showroom?

Next morning off to WILLIAM HOLLAND in the Cotswolds. It is a picture book place.

 William Holland makes hand crafted baths, basins and more, and stores them all in these gorgeous buildings. The day we were there, a dairy cow came calling, right up to the front door.  Can you believe they are still using thatched roofs?

 All the tubs are copper or brass based and do an amazing job of holding the heat. And they really are comfortable. Stop into one of OUR showrooms and check them out.
