Lockdown Burns

Hi Everyone,Tartan and tweed is the standard late January 2x2 window and normally we might be looking forward to a little jolly on Burns Night. Alas it will be a jig and a dram in the kitchen this year. I'll be raising my glass with the Burns greeting "Sláinte Mhath!", pronounced "Slanj'-uhva" to you all, which very appropriately translates to, Good Health! Keep well everyone and do send me snaps of your lockdown Burns, it will cheer me up no end! With love and haggisRachael & Janetxoxo  Strip the Willow Sweater £120Britannia Two Step Bum bag £29Ceilidh Cowl £49 Red Rose Reels Poncho £75Speed the Plough Sweater £120 Cumnberland Square Cardigan £159Red Rose Reels Scarf £59Dashing White Sergeant Dotty Shirt £39  Postie's Jig Poncho £125Wind on Lock...

Pullover Party

Hi Everyone, This weekend we are celebrating 20 years of 2x2! On the weekend of the 2000 Dickensian Festival we opened our doors for the first time and we've been peddling our wares ever since. There have been ups and there have been downs and of course this will be the first year in all those years that we will miss dressing up as Victorians on the cobbled streets, as our annual Dickensian Festival takes a pause for covid. Nevertheless, on Saturday we will be raising a glass (and who says we won't be dressing up!) and feeling truly thankful for you our fabulous customers and friends. With love and birthday cakeRachael & Janet We have stocked and sold the Donegal tweed polo neck sweater by Fisherman out of Ireland...
