About Us

We are Damian & Julie Evans.

This is Bazaar.

 

We live in a tiny little cottage in the woods on a forestry estate in Narberth, Pembrokeshire. One of the most beautiful little character-filled towns in the UK.

Never been here? Well you should visit. Tall terraced houses painted in pretty colours and some amazing independent stores selling a wide range of goods. To top it all, we have many eateries, many of them award winning, all on our doorstep. Narberth has been voted the friendliest town in Wales so it's not just us being biased.

But I digress. I'm supposed to tell you about us...

Where was I?

Oh, yes. Robin Cottage.

It's wonderfully and cosily tiny, with a rather wild garden, and right now as I write (Nov 2017) , we're working on creating a chicken habitat ready to welcome feathered tenants in the spring. We already share the cottage and garden with our lovely black Labrador (and shop dog) Pippin, and three gorgeous bunnies; Rosie and Matilda are loving sisters and Henry is the large young lionhead lop who likes to be in the house so much that he scratches the back door if it's closed and barring his way... 

We love the log burner, the sound of the birds, the wonky old cottage walls and the buzzard that sits on the telegraph pole at the start of the farm track. We love watching Pippin splash in muddy puddles and swim in the lake - and are thankful for the heavy slate floors when she gets back inside! We love that the horses in the back field come to say hello when Pippin barks, that the front steps are edged with daisies and beautiful purple campanula, and the night-scented jasmine scrambling wildly over the fence near the back door. We adore the gnarly old apple tree and the dark wooded area at the back of the garden that we've started creating a Victorian stumpery in...

Damian and I both love pieces with a story to tell, the quirkier the better. The Bazaar is simply an extension of our home and the things we love. There's a shared excitement we have in bringing an unloved piece back to life.

We wanted to create a special place where we could share our finds, offer a variety of interesting workshops and bring together different people with a passion for different things. Our building is simply a warehouse that used to be part of the James Williams Brewery and we're tucked away behind the local supermarket.

It's what's inside that is special...

We're proud to say that, although the Bazaar will always be evolving (as it should), we are achieving some of these goals...
