Pin on a little tweed hare

and enjoy the last of winter's cool brisk days with a gorgeous tweed hare brooch on your lapel

or have friendly hare pinned on your bag


or keep hare warm too, as a nice accoutrement to your tartan scarf


and not just hares for every day wear, 

add some glam and pearls to your evening outfit


and perhaps your friend would appreciate a friendly (faux fur) hare too?


pop one in the post to them along with a happy note on this tender postcard

and make every day of the year the 'year of the hare'!

All available in the Hare Preservation Trust online shop, but mind, the brooches are all one-of-a-kind handmade originals by Annette, and the postcards won't be printed again and are now rare!

got your Christmas cards yet?

There is still time to purchase your Christmas / New Year cards from our super selection in our online shop.

Sometimes there are slight delays and depending on the individual artist's workload and orders but this is one of the busiest times of the year and everyone wants to make sure that their cards are sitting nicely above a fireplace or by the xmas tree and presents! so all efforts will be made to get you your cards asap.
