The world of music has always been my life ! Having worked as a professional harpist for many years I set up "Affairs of the Harp" in 1998 as an online source of secondhand harps. The gifts and accessories came later with a range of top quality harp themed items: tote bags, bone china mugs, tea towels, all with specially commissioned artwork from a fabulous, award winning artist. I love thinking up new themes and ideas and she comes up with fantastic designs!
Handicrafts such as sewing and knitting have always been hobbies - I was taught to knit and crochet by my grandmother and as a child I watched my mother make most of our clothes. So, the next step, combining my work as a musician and my love of sewing, was to expand my range of products to include other hand made gifts that will appeal to all musicians ( not just harpists!) - tote bags, purses and cushions, all handmade!
The range is growing all the time. I love experimenting with fabrics and sourcing new materials, so the animal themed tote bags have also been included in the range. Well, as well as being musically "in tune", you can be "in tune" with nature! Bags, purses, cushions, mugs- have a look and see what catches your eye !
