Hurray! Official Stockist of St Eval Candles in Whaley Bridge

It's taken a little longer that we expected (aren't all things worth the wait) but we are now official stockists of St Eval Candles in Whaley Bridge.

Finding colour in Town and Country

Here at May's we love colour and pattern. In a world that seems to have turned very grey seeing something bright and vibrant really lifts the day.
