Take a peek in the Upton Store when you visit. There's a new range of wartime memorabilia and unique Upton House mementos. With wonderful National Trust bags, jams and china, as well as our special themed gifts about our Banking for Victory story.
Make do and mend
As clothing was rationed throughout the war, women had to be increasingly creative with their old dresses and blouses to liven up their wardrobe. Start your own wardrobe make over with a clothing ration sewing kit, tape measure, pins or buttons in a tin, all finished with authentic designs of the period.
We also have a selection of red, cream or blue rag rug kits, for cushions or lavender bags. Perfect for a little vintage flare around your home.
