Family business Gone Crabbing was launched in 2008 by Susie Mason. Inspired by both her home county of Norfolk and all our beautiful British coastal resorts, she has created a humorous and imaginative range of gifts and clothing which embraces all things “beachy”. I just love this brand, beautiful designs and great quality and the website is one of the best looking websites I have come across in a long time.
We were lucky enough to receive some of the Gone Crabbing goodies for our home and I just love them, the cups are adorable with fantastic designs on them and the oven glove looks really cool and trendy – it matches our kitchen really well too! Isla’s little T-shirt is just adorable and over the summer she has been enjoying wearing it.
Crabbing is synonymous with Norfolk. A simple pleasure involving the catching of crabs with the aid of a net stuffed with bacon. This is suspended on a line over a quayside or pier at high tide and proves irresistible to crabs who attach themselves to said net in droves. The crabs are then gently transferred into a bucket of water before being returned to the sea when the day’s crabbing is done.
Susie chose the famous Cromer crab for her logo and Gone Crabbing’s cheeky little crustacean Colin is now featured across Susie’s distinctive product range alongside his motley collection of friends that include Steve the Seagull and Shawn the Prawn. You can see all of their fantastic stock on the website: http://www.gonecrabbing.co.uk/, you can like them on Facebook here and you can follow them on Twitter @gonecrabbing. If you are ever across in Norfolk I would definitely pay their shops a visit, I know we will next time we venture over there.
