Suspension of Pay and Collect Service
When I’m feeling a bit down I just look at this photo of some tulips at home and it never fails to cheer me up 😃. I call this lovely stage “when tulips go dancing “! I hope you and your families are safe and well in such awful times. Sadly I have decided, in light of the current COVID conditions in our area, to suspend our pay and collect service for a few weeks. I am just not happy for our customers to make unnecessary journeys to do the collections nor me any deliveries. Really hope you understand and I hope we will all very soon be returning to some sense of normality. I am still processing our bespoke furniture orders so please don’t hesitate to pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries. Take care, stay safe and look forward to seeing you all soon I hope . S xxx
Hope everyone has had a peaceful festive break. Buddy has adored the extra company he really does seem to know when you need those extra cuddles💙.
Just a quick note to say that Pepperbox will, as anticipated in my previous post, be closed for the foreseeable future according to government instructions. I will be in the shop every Friday for a few hours so if anyone needs anything we can arrange a call, pay and collect appointment. Please do email me at email@example.com and we can arrange payment, collection or local doorstop delivery. Stay safe! Sarah xx

A message about us!
A NOTE FROM SARAH – 3RD NOVEMBER 2020
THE WHOLE ETHOS OF PEPPERBOX HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS A PERSONAL SERVICE AND TO MAKE THEIR VISIT TO OUR LITTLE HIGH STREET SHOP A PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE.
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE FAN OF THE HIGH STREET AND I HAVE THEREFORE BEEN RELUCTANT TO JOIN THE MASSES BY SELLING ONLINE INSTEAD CHOSING TO OFFER A TRADITIONAL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE.
WE RETAIL A SELECTION OF PRODUCTS AND IN ORDER TO CREATE AN EVER-CHANGING AND INTERESTING SHOP FLOOR, WE ONLY ORDER SMALL QUANTITIES OF NEW PRODUCTS. WE ALSO STOCK UNIQUE RENOVATED PIECES OF FURNITURE, WE SHOWCASE PRODUCTS FROM A NUMBER OF LOCAL ARTISANS AND WE OFFER A BESPOKE SERVICE ON A RANGE OF FURNITURE, SAMPLES OF WHICH ARE AVAILABLE TO VIEW.
OUR WEBSITE IS NOT E-COMMERCE BASED AS WE JUST DO NOT HAVE THE FACILITIES OR STOCK LEVEL TO RUN AN EFFICIENT SERVICE.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY PRODUCT (LISTED UNDER THE SHOP OPTION ON MAIN MENU) PLEASE CLICK THE ENQUIRE BUTTON ON EACH PRODUCT WHICH WILL GENERATE AN EMAIL ENQUIRY. YOU CAN USE THIS METHOD TO ORDER A PRODUCT. SOMEONE WILL REPLY TO YOUR ENQUIRY ANSWERING ANY QUERIES AND DISCUSS PAYMENT AND DELIVERY OPTIONS WITH YOU.
IN THE CURRENT CLIMATE WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO OFFER LOCAL DELIVERIES OR A COLLECTION FROM THE SHOP, ADHERING TO GOVERNMENT SAFETY GUIDELINES AT ALL TIMES.
I HOPE EVERYONE IS SAFE AND WELL AND SEND YOU LOVE AND POSITIVITY GOING FORWARD.
Well here we are again ..... we will, in accordance with government directives, be closing our doors at close of business on Wednesday. The good news is that we have extended our opening hours for this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to 9am through to 6pm. After this we will be offering a collection and local delivery service only. We are currently working on the logistics and will announce more details very soon. I can’t begin to describe the worries that this enforced closure brings to us and our fellow small independent High Street stores at this our busiest time of year. I urge all our customers and supporters, wherever you live, to please shop local and support your local independent businesses as much as you possibly can. Sarah xx
We will be closed this Bank Holiday Monday
WE ARE BACK!
So pleased to say we are back to normal working hours tomorrow!
Mon Fri 10-5
So looking forward to seeing everyone again xxx
Support your local businesses - Gift vouchers now available

With this in mind we are pleased to be able to now offer you an on-line Pepperbox Gift Voucher scheme. Please support us during such difficult trading conditions and think about buying a Pepperbox Gift Voucher for a friend, relative, or partner. You may not be able to visit our little shop on the High Street right now but when all this is over we will be here with our usual gorgeous selection of products and furniture. Thank you so much for your continued support. Sarah

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that in light of the Government guidelines and the fact that my husband is in the “at risk” category I have decided that Pepperbox will temporarily close its doors until further notice with effect from 2 o’clock tomorrow, Saturday 21st March, 2020. I will always be available to chat via email or on my mobile and I am more than happy to help with any design/colour queries you might have. In fact I would welcome it! Thank heavens we have such great methods of communication which I am sure will make our journey through this scary time just a little more bearable. I will now be spending my time in the garden, reading books I have wanted to read for ages, developing our website (boy does it need it!!) and working on other new exciting plans for Pepperbox. Thank you all for your wonderful support and from all of us at Pepperbox we send our love and heartfelt best wishes to you all. See you soon. Sarah, Jen, Jo, Jenny and Sarah xxx

Late Night Shopping at Pepperbox!
Cuckfield Village Late Night Shopping Evening. We will be open late till 9 o’clock on Thursday 28th November for the Cuckfield late night shopping evening. Please do join us for a glass of fizz as we celebrate thirteen years on our beautiful High Street. ^holidaysarecoming shoplocal whereyoushopmatters happybirthdaypepperbox interiors design bespokefurniture christmasgifts cuckfield cuckfieldvillage^
Exciting news from us today, but also tinged with a little sadness too. Exciting in so much that we will be moving our main family base to Guernsey later this year where I will be re-designing and renovating our family home. Sad in that whilst I will be returning to the UK every other week to continue my work with clients old and new and oversee the management of our Cuckfield shop it does mean our West Grinstead shop and barn will have to close. Our current home, just down the lane behind the West Grinstead store, will soon be going on the market and it is therefore just not practical anymore to keep the shop, barn and my office open in West Grinstead. I have a wonderfully able, loyal and supportive team behind me and business will continue as normal from our Cuckfield store following this restructuring of Pepperbox Interiors. Sarah xx
A sneaky peek into our Barn behind our store on the A272 just south of Horsham
One of the rooms inside our store in West Grinstead, just south of Horsham and on the A272!
.....a peek inside our Cuckfield store
Pleased to say everyone is safe with no damage to property after this rather scary event yesterday just outside our store on the A272. Thank you for all your kind messages xx
Just a quick note to say we are currently working on improving our site so you may find everything is a bit muddled. Please bear with us. Sarah xx
Sorry our West Grinstead store is closed today 16.5.19
We are excited to now be stockists of a beautiful range of products that contribute to wildlife conservation.
Combining a passion for British wildlife, these unique products feature beautiful British wildlife species designs, many of which are protected or in decline. We want to raise awareness of Britain's declining & protected wildlife species, to inspire people to take active roles in conservation and to help raise funds for the charities that endeavour to conserve our wildlife. Purchasing these products raises funds for eleven British wildlife charities, including Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, and Bumblebee Conservation Trust. On each item there is information about the species illustrated on the product, along with details about the related charity. All designed and made within the British Isles. Do pop into our Cuckfield shop and take a look. However, we nearly sold out of the glorious soaps on day one. More on their way. notebooks prints soaps postcards mugs britishwildlife bumblebees hares moths woodpeckers doormouse puffins #wildlifeconservation

With just four days until we open our new shop in West Grinstead I thought I would start to share with you some photos of how we have turned a rather stinky old fish shop into a beautiful Pepperbox shop! These photos show what is now the bedroom, the old walk in freezer has been ripped out along with its contents (urgh), the rotten wet floorboards have been replaced, the enormous piles of rubbish have been cleared. We have stripped the tiles from the walls, ripped out and capped off the plumbing and scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed! We then replastered the walls and ceilings, redecorated, rewired and put down a new floor #pepperbox2017
Pepperbox 2017 - New Shop and Relaunch of our Barn Showroom

A little bird ...........
tells us these cute little chaps will be joining us at Christmas - preparations are in their advanced stage!
I have always thought that the height of a lamp base should be dictated by the height of the piece of furniture it sits on. This photo of a gorgeous room set on Pinterest proves how wrong I am! The two dark bases are much taller than the console table but somehow with the height of the armoire and tall door frames they look perfectly balanced. You never stop learning in the world of interiors!! Sarah xx

Something I posted on facebook to cheer us up on a very gloomy wet Monday morning last week.
I love putting ideas together via collages, grouping colours, themes, textures, seasons etc which I usually show on social media.
