About Tawny Owl Toys and Gifts

My husband set up this business in 1978 after being made redundant for a second time. He was always interested in art and developed this into water colour paintings of wildlife and architecture. When we had children he made wooden toys for them, then for friends and neighbours, then after the second redundancy he started attending small craft fairs. This led to larger craft fairs, agricultural shows and the chance to move into a craft centre in Worcestershire. We moved to Corris and the Corris Craft Centre in 1984 but when he died in 1989, I took over. My background was office based. We’re now seeing lots of the first children who enjoyed Tawny Owl toys returning to buy toys for their children!

With regret, I have been forced to take early retirement having been recently diagnosed with cancer so I must put my health first. I love my shop and love my work but these days my body is telling me otherwise!
I’d like to see my business prosper and grow and it’s now for sale as a going concern.
I’ve been making and selling traditional wooden toys for 34 years here at Corris. It’s a beautiful place to work and over the years I’ve met some wonderful people. It’s with deep regret that I will no longer be part of it.

There’s always been a great demand for Tawny Owl products and I think that this is a really exciting business opportunity for whoever takes it forward. I'm sure they'll have as much fun and enjoyment as I have. To find out more follow this link. In the meantime, it’s BUSINESS AS USUAL! Maureen Curry
