8 March 2020- Our grand Opening
A month ago we closed our lovely little shop and started our new adventure, the support we have received since from all of our lovely friends, family and customers has been overwhelming. Thank you so much to everyone that has supported us, we really couldn’t do it without you And a massive thank you to Sweet Memories Cakes and Buffets, Sedgley for our incredible cake!

After a long time of pondering weather we should make the move, working in our old shop- as much as we loved it felt like we needed a bit more room. We were so fortunate that at the time we were outgrowing our little shop, a bigger shop opposite became available. The Penny Farthing Arcade has been a really wonderful place to grow our little cafe, it’s filled with loads of wonderful independent business ran by the loveliest people, which made staying in the Arcade or close by very important to us.
On the 8th Feb we had our last day in our old shop finished off with an afternoon tea and started the move. We’ve spent the last few weeks working with fantastic kitchen fitters Anne and Graham who transformed the front of the shop with a kitchen and a counter. With lots of painting, cleaning, scraping windows and lots of help from family and friends, we had our officially opening yesterday – 8th March.
We were overwhelmed with the amount of people that came to our official opening, we could not have asked for a better opening day. We are planning on growing our lovely little shop bringing you more crafts alongside our speciality coffee and cakes.
8th March 2020-Enchanted Forest Water Colour workshop
To end our official opening we were joined by the wonderful Angela Godridge, Angela is a local artist who we discovered after running an art competition when we had first opened and since then have been lucky enough to work with and showcase her gorgeous work.
The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing, with tea, coffee and biscuits to keep everyone going, Angela helped this lovely group of ladies to create some really beautiful pieces of art.
If you are looking to try a watercolour/ mixed media workshop keep an eye out on our workshops page as we will have another one coming up in May!
More Than Just A Coffee Shop!
We created Humbugs Coffee and Crafts to allow us to have a space to bring two things we love together….
Yes! Coffee and Crafts!
It was always our dream to own a coffee shop, and to provide a space within the community we could really make our own.
Around this time last year we were just getting ready to open up the doors of our brand new coffee shop!
Since then we have moved from strength to strength providing unusual crafts to complete whilst having one of our warm drinks. Some of the crafts we have supported so far are –
– Jewellery Making
– Screen Printing
We even ran a Maths support club to help the community with their Maths exams!
We would love to hear form you what you would like us to do over the next 12 months.
