The woods

Handcrafted in Devon

Truly a cottage business

Welcome to Seagirl and Magpie ( Trish and Joel)

Our homegrown cottage business started roughly 8 years ago from a love of all things recycled, upcycled, reclaimed and homemade.

As we had a young family we really wanted to have more time together so we decided to turn our passion into a business working from our home here in Devon.

Slowly but surely we made small pieces for friends and family and once we'd filled their homes we then moved on to local craft fairs and finally online.

We're still here sharing our time between the woods and the recycled garden Shed.

Joel's pieces are individually handmade using solid wood and hand painted which gives them more character and charm.

Our signs are handmade using our woodland wood and reclaimed, once prepared I burn the lettering straight onto the wood by them a true rustic finish.

The WorkshopThe cabin The woods

Handmade by Joel and Trish

We are a husband and wife team with two teenage sons who are slowly becoming part of our family business.

We have been featured in Vogue Maison Chic, Beautiful Homes and Country Homes and Interiors

Many of our products have been used for magazine shoots and have just supplied shelving for the new Bridget Jones film.

We have worked with Trevillion interiors supplying shelving for a large number of shepherd huts,

Our signs have been purchased for styling fashion outlets as props and recently a large number were used to create an old fashioned style sweet shop.

We were also very honoured to make nautical ward signs for Birmingham's children unit
