Lovely article and pictures of the Offical Opening of eye2eye Shop in Phonebox magazine this week.

We have seen quite a few new visitors to Wollaston Courtyard this morning, many of whom have not visited the Yard before, including an old school friend who I haven’t seen for over 20 years (!), so a very surprising and pleasing result! You can take a look at the Phonebox article here.
