On Etsy since 2020

Love in the Time of Coronavirus Meets Small Shop Dreams

Everything happens for a reason, and it sure did with us. With my kitty Pickles Barrington in tow, I was starting a new life chapter with a sabbatical in the UK, and Robert was seeking his happily ever after. I wasn't expecting to meet anyone on my trip. That sort of thing only happens in romantic comedies, right? Well, I did meet someone. He won me over with a story of saving a baby lamb's life and Christmas socks worn in February, I won him over with American strawberry shortcake, and the rest is history... until COVID-19 busted through 2020 like a Brighton seagull absconding with your chunky chips.

Our relationship accelerated rather quickly when I had to leave my AirBnb earlier than expected because of my host having to return home from overseas. We must have been psychic, really. One week before lockdown happened, being the ever wonderful gentleman that he is, Robert insisted Pickles and I move into his flat until my return flight home. By this time, we already knew we were each other's happily ever afters, but COVID-19 gave us the gift of an unexpected timeline. We didn't know that travel restrictions would make my return to the States impossible until summertime, so in a matter of months, I learned how incredible he was at building things, and I jokingly said we should open an Etsy shop with our talents combined. The joke turned into a vision, and that vision turned into this shop.

So, friends, we found our sunshine in daily life and in this shop. My love of the wedding world rubbed off on Robert, and his resourcefulness continues to make me fall in love with him more with each thing he makes.

Our shop name comes from the great English Oak tree (a symbol of endurance, wisdom, and life) and our being on top of the neighborhood hill. The “& Co.” bit is the emotive brown tabby cat you will see in many photos on social media and in our shop.

No matter how COVID-19 changes the way the world celebrates weddings, we hope to help be a part of your special day and beyond with a bit of American can-do spirit and British ingenuity. ♥

Frequently asked questions
Why do wooden sign colours look different in each listing?

Due to the natural characteristics of mature wood, stain colours can slightly vary from our signature colours in different lighting situations. Wood knots may also be present. These unique attributes make each sign a lovely reflection of the sustainably sourced environment from where it came!

Custom and personalised orders

Dreaming of something not seen in our shop? Email us with your ideas, and we will see if we can make it happen for you!

Wholesale availability

At the moment, we do not offer wholesale for our fellow retail friends, but it is on the planning list for 2021.

Can I change the wording on a particular sign?

Absolutely! Some of our signs have personalisation built into some listings. If it doesn't, this would be considered a custom order and would have a custom price and listing just for you. Please message us with your request.
