Rain Launched in Colwyn Bay

After months of planning, designing and hard graft, our good friends have opened 'Rain.'; a clothing shop stocking independent labels from the UK, such as Thunder Apparel, Live Without Regret, Emib, Avenue Wave Club, Ravenous and Appelle Moi.

Teddy's featured in CutThroatPete's Vlog

In the weeks before Christmas we sold out and restocked our Teddy's Beard Care Gift Sets twice over! Since we started this company they have without a doubt been our biggest seller both online and at events. Before selling out once more, we put the last Gift Set to one side to send to one of Liverpool's most respected and in demand barbers; Cut Throat Pete.Pete has been barbering for over 13 years and fell in love with the trade from day one. His popular barber shop in Liverpool can often have a waiting list in excess of 3 months!

Teddy's at Surf Snowdonia Christmas Market

We spent last weekend at Surf Snowdonia's first Christmas Market. It was a last minute decision but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!Surf Snowdonia is an inland surf lagoon in Dolgarrog, North Wales. The 300 metre surfing lake opened in August 2015 and has since hosted events such as Red Bull Unleashed, the world's first stadium surf contest. The free admission event featured a surfing Santa, live music, a beer tent, and local traders who were set up in the surf pods.  Even though we only live a few miles down the road, we took up on the offer to stay the night in our Pod! After a day of trading we wound down in the Tipi bar and enjoyed a few locally...
