Daisy Days closing 6-9 June 2016 to star in BBC Bronte drama!

If you’ve visited Haworth this week, you’ll notice that the BBC production team have now started setting up for filming of Sally Wainwright’s TV film drama about our famous homegrown literary siblings the Brontes. ‘To Walk Invisible’ will be screened this Christmas and is being filmed at both a replica of the Bronte Parsonage which has been built on the nearby moors, and here on Main Street, which is undergoing a dramatic transformation to take it back to the 1840s. We’re incredibly excited to announce that our shop Daisy Days will be a key part of the Main Street set! The cellar of the former premises of our sister café Cobbles & Clay is also being used for filming. This unfortunately means that we will have to close for a few days (6-9 June 2016) but it will all be worth it to see our home star in the show. Until filming starts on 6 June, Main Street and all its shops are open as usual and you can see the set being created....
Order your Baker Boy flat cap ready for Haworth 1940s weekend 2016!

Order your Baker Boy flat cap ready for Haworth 1940s weekend 2016!

The incredibly popular Haworth 1940s weekend is coming up on 13-15 May 2016. Since we’re based on Main Street, we’re always right in the centre of the action for this busy event, which sees the village turned into a war time tribute, packed full of people dressed head to toe in typical 1940s uniforms and outfits. This year, we’re hoping to see a few of our new and exclusive range of Yorkshire tweed flat caps and baker boy hats being modelled! If you want to really look the part, our authentic range of Bronte-themed designer hats by Kempadoo-Millar are a modern twist on a traditional look. And it’s not just the style that’s ‘old school’, so is the manufacturing. The hats are made from local tweed and wool in one of Yorkshire’s only remaining textile mills – just as they would have been in the 1940s. Baker Boy caps were, as the name suggests, worn by working boys and men during the early 20th century and became a trademark item amongst the ‘working’ class. However, for anyone who will be wearing a slightly smarter outfit for the weekend in Haworth, the caps also frequented the wardrobes of the ‘upper’ classes for leisure activities and became associated with wealthy country sportsmen. Whether you’re planning a head to toe outfit or just want to add a little twist to your everyday style, order your Baker Boy or flat cap online or pop into the shop to try on the different styles. To deliver in time for the 1940s weekend on 13 May, we ask any online orders to be placed by...

Flat cap designer to the stars Rhian Kempadoo-Millar has designed an exclusive range of Bronte-themed hats for Daisy Days ahead of the bicentenary celebrations of the literary siblings’ birth. The aptly-named Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell flat caps will be exclusively sold at our boutique gift shop on Haworth’s Main Street and in our online shop www.daisy-days.co.uk. We are holding a launch event on Saturday 23 April 2016, giving customers the opportunity to be amongst the first to try on the hats. A limited number will be available for sale in the shop and online on the day and we will also be taking orders in-store and via the website.   Rhian Kempadoo-Millar – Yorkshire flat cap designer to the stars! Yorkshire-based British headwear brand Kempadoo Millar creates designer flat caps manufactured in Yorkshire at one of the few remaining cloth hat makers in the UK, tapping into the region’s fabric weaving heritage and the rising popularity for locally-produced, ethical fashion. TV shows like Downton Abbey and Peaky Blinders have also contributed to making flat caps into a fashion statement. When she launched the brand in 2013, Rhian Kempadoo-Millar’s vision was to “put the Yorkshire cool back into the flat cap” with something that is “more funky than farmer”, combining traditional Yorkshire tweeds with hints of vibrant silk and quirky detailing. With celebrities including actor Idris Elba as her customers, she has built a cult following for her Yorkshire flat caps across the UK and in the US, taking regular orders from customers across the world via her online shop.   The Kempadoo-Millar Bronte flat cap range exclusively at Daisy...
Bid for a Daisy Days gift set at Sue Ryder Manorlands auction night April 2016

Bid for a Daisy Days gift set at Sue Ryder Manorlands auction night April 2016

We love supporting local charities, so when we heard about an auction night to raise funds for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice , we knew it was something we wanted to be involved in. Manorlands Hospice, based in nearby Oxenhope, provides care for people living with life challenging illnesses in Airedale, Craven and North and West Bradford. It costs £2.9 million each year to provide care at, and from, the hospice and they need to raise a minimum of £1.6 million of that in donations and voluntary income. It is a charity very close to the hearts of many of our staff and customers. We’ve donated a special Avoca goody bag with winter warmers and a lovely smelly soap perfect for a relaxing bath. Our donation, along with lots of other prizes up for grabs, will be auctioned off at Utley Rugby Club on Saturday 2 April 2016. Tickets are £10, which includes include pie and pea supper, raffle ticket, stand-up-sit-down bingo and a disco – so is promising to be a fantastic night! We’ve also persuaded Yorkshire flat cap designer Rhian Kempadoo Millar (who is currently designing us an exclusive range of Bronte-themed hats which will be available soon!) to donate two of her gorgeous flat caps worth over £100 for the pair. If you would like to be one of many local businesses involved, local woman Emma Ibbotson is still appealing for donations to help reach the target of £3,000 for this amazing charity. Please email Emma on emmaibb@hotmail.co.uk to buy tickets and/or donate to the raffle or auction....
