For the last two years Calico Kate has been nominated and won the award for The Best Independent Retailer in Wales.

We aim to give the best customer service, a shop that wows and delights our customers and the quickest turn around on internet orders. For this, I would like to thank my staff Karen, Lesley and Kate Hannon, and special thanks to my husband Peter Barnes for his photography and for my website… all together *We are Calico Kate!*
