About the store
Welcome to Maddison's Trade Me Store
Maddisons, Phillip and Pat Hosking, specialise in handmade garden art.
We have been making our Art for 5 to 6 years now.
Phillip did his apprenticeship in metal work many years ago and for over 40 years we owned a successful metalwork manufacturing company, now semi-retired we are thrilled we can focus on our passion.
Maddison - Maddie - was our beloved cat and gardening 'mate' for 21 years and we named our business after her .
We design and handcraft all our products ourselves and we also custom make bespoke pieces to order. Our garden and homeware products are both unique and of a high quality, we only design and produce what we love.
Phillip makes, Pat promotes and sells ( well talks! )
We enjoy every aspect of our business, from the initial design and production right through to the customer experience, we love meeting both our customers and those just browsing our products. We 'specially like hearing of the enjoyment people get from our art in their gardens.
Our oldest customer ( that we know of ) is an 85 lady who brought a Lotus Flower because she loved it so much!
You are very welcome to visit and view our art by appointment during the day, evening and weekends have a look at our art, there is no obligation to buy, we want our customers to be happy and enjoy what they have chosen in their garden.
