Could this be the utterly fabulous tent? I really, really want one to hide in during the summer with a good book and glass of wine.

Oh I love the look of that tent too! It's here

Do you think she is doing it for atTENTion ??

Sorry couldn't resist.

WigWamBam Sat 19-Mar-05 19:30:06

I think that was probably the inTENTion, LGJ

As a matter of fact it is so wonderful I'd like one set up permanently in my house. Just a special place for me. I am now in intent on getting one.

about ten yrs ago i was in her shop with my mum and we were hoking and poking away at various bits, she was there and left us to it. a salesman came in and she brought him downstairs, where we were, because there was a large cutting table, and he laid out his samples.
they started talking prices and my mother and me nearly fainted the stuff was for 3/4/5 £, and here we were looking to buy it at maybe 17/18 then, and she didnt seem to notice us listening, eavesdropping naturally!
i was like where is that guys factory, he had a northern accent so i was listning hard for an address.
so cath kidston has made a packet
and i was really surprised that she didnt design the cloth designs, she gave the impression she did

I have one of these tents! It came in the post last week and I love it! It is going to be up in the garden whenever we are not away with it (as this is our big plan for this summer).
Was really surprised at my dh for buying it as he is a bit of a tent snob (it's made by Eurohike) but we both love it. We are also down on the waiting list for when the chairs come in.

OMG, how completely fabulous is that? How much is it? That would be perfect for my garden - somewhere to escape to....

JoolsToo Sat 19-Mar-05 19:47:55

come on you can't have a flowery tent

thats just pretend camping

snafu Sat 19-Mar-05 19:50:38

But what I really want is the flowery caravan on the home page.

JoolsToo Sat 19-Mar-05 19:51:38

you're kidding!

JoolsToo Sat 19-Mar-05 19:52:05

you're not

snafu Sat 19-Mar-05 19:53:03

No, I'm not kidding

Camping, schmamping - this would be more like living in the Magic Roundabout...

Davros Sun 20-Mar-05 09:51:54

Oooh, its gorgeous, very decatent! When I was in her shop a while ago I found it very enjoyable but didn't want to actually buy anything.

Pinotmum Sun 20-Mar-05 09:53:26

That's the one for me - I only do pretend camping .

Pinotmum Sun 20-Mar-05 09:54:36

I need a hammock to match now - any recommendations?

misdee Sun 20-Mar-05 10:02:49

i'd love a cath kidston style buggy. think how girly and fab that would be.

think there is a car seat somewhere thats cath kidston, or her style anyway.

bea Sun 20-Mar-05 10:11:27

marthamoo Sun 20-Mar-05 10:51:39

Oh oh oh the caravan! I'm in love!

No, no, no! In a local department store today ..... a Cath Kidston telescopic umbrella, made by Fulton. Whatever next? Look out for CK kettles, ring binders, propelling pencils at an Asda near you. Why do they get soooooo greedy? She's going the way of Linda Barker, you mark my words!
