Why the name Wickstead’s?
We are a very creative family, creativity is in our genes. Nana Wickstead (who occasionally likes to chip in with some design ideas too) is a genealogist that has researched our family history for many years now, it has been very interesting reading & seeing all the family history she has found dating back over hundreds of years (it helps to have a rare surname).
Our love of Art, Crafts, Antique, Vintage, Afternoon Tea, Alice in Wonderland & the eye for quality also run in the family. As you can see in here on Wickstead’s these are a prominent theme. Many of our products including our Eat Me Edibles have a Vintage/Antique theme to them as well as our personal favourites having an Afternoon Tea & Alice in Wonderland theme.
Wickstead’s Eat Me Edibles
Our edibles are perfect to finish off all your Edible & Drinkable Creations they will grab everyone’s attention & just call to them .. “Eat Me”
Wickstead’s Eat Me was inspired by the ever growing trend & our love for ‘Afternoon Tea’ events, Eat Me Edibles is stocked with edible wafer images & creations for you to add to your cakes, cupcakes, cookies, sweet & savoury creations, as well as anything else edible that comes to your imagination, perhaps a salad?
Our shop name of ‘Eat Me’ is based on the labels that Alice found once she went down the Rabbit Hole to Wonderland and seemed perfect to tie in with the products we sell. We created Eat Me because of Tija’s (Daughter) love of baking & our love of experimenting to create new products & designs.
Everything for the Discerning Gentlemen. Dedicated to Men, but not restricted to of course.
Mr Wickstead was inspired by the historical photographs & information of our family found by Nana Wickstead, as well as our love of vintage & antique men’s Fashion.
Our Mr Wickstead is a dapper gent who loves everything antique, vintage & newely hand crafted. He has an eye for style.
