About us


What A Good Idea! was conceived nearly 20 years ago from an idea around a garden table, when I realised that being a wife, mother, dog walker, private taxi service, chief cook and bottle washer just didn't provide enough to keep me busy!

Enjoying shopping as I do, but being bored with the everyday "high street" products, I wanted to find things that were not readily available and were just what I believed to be - 'A Good Idea'!

Over the years What A Good Idea! has grown and developed the range to encompass the eclectic mix of cotton separates, jackets, shoes, gifts and accessories which you will find on our stand today.

We attend many garden fairs, agricultural shows and charity events throughout the year, often donating a percentage of our takings to the charity concerned. Having been "gently pushed" by customers for years to establish a proper website and I have just about run out of plausible excuses for not having one! However, we will still be attending shows around the country and you can find a list of where we will be in the events section of our website.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and also our customer care. Indeed many of our customers and suppliers have become friends. We offer a no quibble returns service and just want you, our customers, to be one hundred percent happy with your purchase.

If you have any ideas or questions, please do feel free to send us a message in the 'contact us' section.
