"I have been buying art and accessories from Saffron at markets for many years, but it increased since she started her lovely shop in Arpora. It's a must-see and a one-stop place for beautiful gifts for yourself, your home and your family and friends. Everything is designed and drawn by her. There are many beautiful prints of her paintings too. I have some beautiful toucans sitting in the jungle cushion covers on my sofa, and my kitchen full with her printed tea towels. The wrapping papers are all favourite gift wrapping too.

My favourites, though, are two frames of cats that she custom made for me a few

years ago. had loved what I had seen, but I just wanted a small tweak to it, and she managed that without murmur. When you commission something from Saffron you are in good hands. She also made a beautiful portrait of our late dog Sandy.

The shop is so nice to browse around in, and it's impossible to leave without buying anything, because everything is so tasteful, and Carlos, who runs the shop is so helpful and nice.

I can recommend her paintings and prints to anyone who is looking to beautify their home"
