“We’ve been named Best Online Shop For Stylish Homewares by The Guardian and our six month pop-up shop was named by The Guardian as The Best Shop To Visit In Bristol. We've also been named a Top Online Shop by The Sunday Times."
Perfect for those who covet unusual gifts at affordable prices, we have new pieces in store every season from a regularly changing collection that has seen us named 'Best Online Shop For Stylish Homewares' by The Guardian and named a 'Top Online Shop' by The Sunday Times. Our six month pop-up shop over Christmas 2012 and Spring 2013 was also named by The Guardian as the Best Shop To Visit in Bristol.
Our name is the fusion of Rog and Cat's second name - How - with the fact that we love loud, unashamedly flamboyant products… so 'kapow'. We hope it makes you smile!
