About Sarah

Sarah is the founder of Searson Fox and has over 25 years experience of working in various industries within the UK, starting her career as a freelance translator, liaising with the likes of Renault and Volvo with beautiful Scottish leather and  exporting and marketing flexible ducting around the world. It was there her passion for working with people and selling arose. Given it is no mean feat to get passionate about a piece of ducting, she moved on to work with products she genuinely loved. Now working with some fabulous and innovative products in the nursery and toy sector in the UK, Sarah is always open to a great idea and an even better product behind it. Searson Fox was named after two inspirational women in Sarah’s family, one whose motto was always “Oh go on, take the bull by the horns, you can do it!” and that’s how Searson Fox came about. And we try to live by that motto most days.

Flying into Friday like…..our beautiful range of kites from Vilac are literally flying out the door at the moment! A perfect pick up when out and about for some good old fashioned traditional outdoors fun. If you’d like more info on how to become a stockist let me know. #shopindie
I read a post from @winterspringsumandfall yesterday which I could totally relate to which was that people assume because she has a beautiful homeware and gift shop that her own home will be adorn with beautiful accessories and never a cushion out of place…. I feel much the same way about my kids bedrooms…they look absolutely nothing like this picture and I really wish they did!! I mean literally the amount of paper and art stuff in my daughters room alone we could probably open an art shop….if of course there’s a niche market for folk who love pens that have lost their lids…Anyhoo apparently there are people who have fabulous kids rooms and this is one of them and it’s full of lovely things we do! The furniture is in stock now and there’s loads more toys and accessories in the range. If you’d like more info on how to stock then let me know #shopindie
Weighing up choice of job / potential weight gain / flexibility / enjoyment factor. Always a tricky one when one of your shops also runs a very nice cafe and says to meet you there to do the orders…….;-)#shopindie
Ooh I’ve been waiting for this bad boy to come into stock! The gorgeous Vilac 2CV Walker in beautiful baby blue. Start walking in style…if you’d like more info on how to stock give me a shout #shopindie
When you find yourself awkwardly lying on a beach in your smart work gear after a meeting trying to take a photo of a toucan in sunglasses you start to ask many a question about your life choices…😳 But also!! The reason for this photo shoot is very important. When I first started working with Best Years almost 6 years ago now this was one of my favourites. They stopped doing it but I feel now is the time to #bringbackthetoucan. Who’s with me?! Come on now, don’t leave me hanging…
My son was asking me yesterday what he said when he first started talking. I was telling him before he actually started to say words his wee party piece was being able to say all the different sounds animals make so ‘What does a bear say’ “GRRRR”, “What does a cow say?” “MOOO”, and my all time favourite being (and this was a real crowd pleaser…) “What does a seal say?” And he used to put his wee hands together like flippers and clap and do the most brilliant bark/wailing sound like a seal (I can’t work out how to write down the noise a seal makes…anyone?!) ANYHOO these gorgeous wooden animals from @lankakade are the perfect way to learn about animals from an early age, the perfect size to hold and play with, to pop in your bag when you’re out and about as a playtime tool, and the perfect wee pick up when out for a day trip. They come in gorgeous display shelves too in two sizes so you don’t even need to worry about how you’re going to display them. And they’re fairtrade! In 3 styles - totally natural, natural painted like these and fully painted. Add a tractor and a farm and you’ve got every 2yo’s dream! There’s not just farm animals in the collection tho - we have sealife, world animals, dinosaurs, mythical, birds, insects and much more!

Lots of love so far for our gorgeous new stationery brand! In fact a bit too much love from a certain person in our household when the samples arrived over the weekend, which then resulted in a “Big Talk” re “You know mum has to actually show these things to shops so you can’t try out everything…” but we did manage to have lots of fun trying out most of them (without tearing the boxes when opening!) The window / mirror markers and the watercolour pens were my particular ‘adult’ top picks! But I also love these natural wooden pencils. Everyone loves a newly sharpened coloured pencil right? It is one of life’s great small pleasures 🌈 #shopindie
