New for Fathers Day

Thursday, 4 June 2020  |  Rocky and Roxy

   

Hi
We have so many new products at the moment and have started with our Cufflinks - we love these and they can have whatever words and messages you would like for a very special and unique present for your Dad xx

We also have some new cremation ashes urns and jewellery pieces - some are so tiny and can can be put on bracelets and necklaces. They come with a free funnel to allow you to pop some of your loved ones ashes inside. We etch a completely bespoke message onto the items which makes them so special. It will take a while to get all the photographs done and information loaded onto the site.  Cant wait to have them up for sale..!

Enjoy the weekend and lets hope the sun comes out again !!!

New Plaques

Friday, 22 May 2020  |  Rocky and Roxy

 

   

We finally got round to putting our plaques on the website - we are super excited as they are FANTASTIC !!  We did this one is to replace the smaller one that's on her bench in Spain that is dedicated to our Grand-dog-ma Alice we love it - we need to send it over for her friends to put on the bench by the Church in Benamara xx

Weather-proof and protected from UV damage - ideal for outdoors or indoors !!  

We can make any size or design as we custom cut to anything you would like.

Its also possible to have an image etched onto the plaques that we have been working on for a while to get them looking correct !! We are very pleased with the results ..! 

So all enjoy the sunshine and the bank holiday weekend ..!

Life in Lockdown

Monday, 20 April 2020  |  Rocky and Roxy

Well we are a bit rubbish at updating our Blog but we told our Human to try and post as often as she could ....!! 

We have been loving the quieter pace of life and she is at home with us anyway quite a lot but the last few weeks all the time !! we love love love it !!! 

We have been expanding our range of Keepsakes which is very lovely and we have had lots of orders so have been very busy of late - another reason Donna said she doesn't have time to blog - but we try our best even if its just short and sweet like today ...! 

I hope that all of you are safe and well and have been keeping to the guidelines to make us all safe - we don't know about this Covid-19 thing that came from a Bat apparently as we cannot get it - but she told us that many people have been sick and lots have lost their lives, we just wanted to say how sorry we are for anyone who has lost a loved one as we know what that is like and it is a sad time for everyone.

Wishing you all safe times and big shout out to KEY WORKERS ..!! Especially the NHS and Care workers xxxx

Cant believe its July already.....!

Monday, 8 July 2019  |  Rocky and Roxy

Well what a fast 6 months its been - so much going on ...! 

As you can see we are here with our Grand-dog-ma taken in March as she fell over and broke her arm.. we had a good snuggle and kept her warm.  Its healed now but she was bruised too as she fell on her face.! We love her a lot, poor thing.

Apart from that we have acquired a new Laser machine and experimenting on new things... its really exciting but taking a while to learn all the new software !!!

Donna has just ordered some BEARD RINGS and we are going to try those out for the men.. She also said we have to get more products made and onto the website for men as we have neglected them !! Hopefully soon they will have somethings to buy !! 

We also have some dog collars and some dog bowls to sort out soon - we are updating some photos and products soon to make it easier to find the perfect product for you all and your friends and families ... 

We also are wearing our new Glitter Dog Pet ID Tags and so they are proving very popular with our dog walking friends and with us playing and running about they still look brand new ! 

So we should be blogging more now - and keep you updated on things ! 

Licks and Wags

New Post

Thursday, 16 August 2018  |  Rocky and Roxy

   




Hi, I am Rocky the little brown chihuahua and Roxy is my step sister she's a bit bigger than me, we think she is a cross between a whippet and a chihuahua - she's quite timid as she suffered some abuse and a bit daft too..! I am a bit aggressive as I am fearful of being hurt (but I'm working on that...!)

At the moment when we are not play-fighting, sleeping, eating, looking out the front window or walking we are busy with the new business and our human, Donna, is doing the typing for us as we tried to learn to touch type but our paws are just too big on her little keypad - !!

We are going into business together as we met in the foster carers home, Ruth, who is lovely from wonky pets http://www.wonkypetsrescue.com and we really liked each other from the day we met. Donna adopted us at the end of May, even though I was difficult she said she would try her best to show me how to behave and not be in fear of everything - I hope it works otherwise I don't know who would put up with me, we are settling in now but it will take some time.

We decided that we want to make and sell jewellery for pets and people and personalised products too and are super excited - wait till you see the new products...! She told us that it takes a while to make these sites and put everything together but we are busy anyway designing and making the new products, we are a bit impatient, but she is training us to be better behaved. Its not really our fault as we have had a bad start in life but she takes us for nice walks and she is working on our anxiety issues, especially mine as I bite and growl....

We will start a blog and continue with the Instagram site in between all of this, we are a busy family at the moment..! Oh she told us to tell you that Ollie, the other Chihuahua, has retired now - he was a big part of Posh Gypsies and she loved him very much xx

So please follow our Instagram for now until we get ourselves up and running ....!!

Introducing Rocky and Roxy

COMING SOON...!

Hi, I am Rocky the little brown chihuahua and Roxy is my step sister she's a bit bigger than me, we think she is a cross between a whippet and a chihuahua - she's quite timid as she suffered some abuse and a bit daft too..! I am a bit aggressive (but I'm working on that....)

We decided that we want to make and sell jewellery for dogs and humans and personalised products too and are super excited - wait till you see the new products...! She told us that it takes a while to make these sites but we are busy anyway designing and making the new products, we are a bit impatient, but she is training us to be better behaved. Its not really our fault as we have had a bad start in life but she takes us for nice walks and she is working on our anxiety issues, especially mine as I bite and growl a lot....

Intro to Posh Gypsies - our original Website

Wednesday, 2 May 2018  |  Rocky and Roxy

Example Image

gypsy 

ˈdʒɪpsi/
informal a nomadic or free-spirited person......

posh
pɒʃ/
informal elegant or stylishly luxurious.....

Welcome to Posh Gypsies !! 

Colourful, fun and trendy outdoor living for modern day Nomads at affordable prices!   Great for your travels, homes & gardens too!
If you are a Camper, Campervaner, Caravaner, Motorhomer, Traveller, Back Gardener, Walker, Adventurer, Glamper, Pet, Hippy, have a Beach hut, a Boat or just an old fashioned Romantic we stock beautiful, fun, bright coloured products you will love for posh outdoor living, parties and fiestas!  
 

After working in the retail world for 30 years I decided to to wind up my present business and ended up taking a year off, during that time I travelled for several months with Oli, an extremely fun and very unusual Chihuahua (check his instagram #ollie_wonderchi).  We drove around Europe to find inspiration for my next business and re-visited my spiritual home the beautiful Southern Spain for 6 weeks.  I realised how important it was to work with passion and do something you love.  Deciding to try working away from fixed sites, rents and rates 'online' was appealing and it wasn't until we approached our final leg through France heading to Cherbourg that a website for 'Posh Gypsies' (like us!) seemed to me to be a perfect combination.  With the increasing popularity of stay-cations, camping, glamping, campervans, festivals or day trips and picnics (even in the back-garden).  We like to get out and have fun, travel and also like nice things of course and all our home comforts! 

 

The name? One evening last year in the local pub I got chatting to a friend of a friend who was a ski instructor in winter and odd job man in summer who described himself as a 'Posh Gypsy'.... I loved it... I want to offer products we all need like cups, plates, mats, towels, etc  but also want them to be beautiful, fun, colourful, 'posh' things for the 'best part of life - the journey'! 

I am very much open to comments and suggestions so please contact me through the website form or email admin@poshgypsies.co.uk and give me your thoughts on the site and the products and even what you would love to see here - I hope its a one-stop-shop for many of you and you will return again and again to create your beautiful 'Posh Gypsy' lifestyle! 

Warmest regards
Peace, Love and Happiness!

Donna & Oli
