The Pickled Shop of Bulwick spreads foodie love and eyes July reopening
The Pickled Shop of Bulwick, Northamptonshire, has launched four ‘ALL4lLOVE’ hampers. Each is filled with various delicious options, including chutney/jam from The Pickled Village, a Snowdonia cheese truckle, Fine Cheese Co crackers and a Warner’s gin miniature. Shipping is available all over the UK.
“Lockdown has been a lonely or difficult time for many,” said Pickled Shop owner Camille Ortega McLean, “so I’ve been working hard to keep delivering goodies with love to homes all over the UK.”
Operating from a makeshift set-up in her daughter’s house, Camille packs the hampers, writes cards and despatches boxes.
A year ago, her home and shop – the bricks-and-mortar version of The Pickled Shop – were destroyed in a thatched-roof fire. Camille said: “The physical shop in Bulwick is being restored and we hope to re-open in July 2020 all being well. However, our online shop, where you can buy our ALL4lLOVE hampers, remains active. Indeed, it has been especially active during lockdown. With a bit of improvisation, we are playing our part in helping people connect. Sharing love through food has always been at the heart of my business and my family life, and now this purpose is more meaningful than ever.”
