10% Off Sweet Fantastic

As any of you who have been to Virtual Noir at the Bar or followed us at Bay Tales will likely be aware, there’s often a flavour of the North East in what we do…and not just the black and white of VNatB or our own local Bay in Bay Tales.

Sweet Fantastic are a North East based design company and, as they themselves say, a canny little husband and wife team.

So, if you want a Geordie flavoured print, card, mug, tea towel or anything else from their range of North East themed bits and bobs, check out their website.

Use the code BayTales10 to receive 10% discount on your order.
