Muriel Rose had a good eye and very high standards, from the beginning she was determined to show only the best contemporary craft work, and did not want the gallery to be thought of as a gift shop. (No. 1) She also wanted to ensure she was not in direct competition with The Three Shields Gallery, and knowing Dorothy Hutton did not stock Barron and Larcher's textiles on a regular basis felt able to approach them to do this. Muriel Rose always displayed a good selection of their work and kept sample books of their prints for clients to choose from, she usually stocked their materials on a sale-or-return basis and took a commission of 33%. The postal service between London and Painswick was excellent and allowed them to maintain an efficient business correspondence. Barron and Larcher's order book for 1938-44 is full of commissions taken by The Little Gallery, often with a note or sample scrap of material to indicate exactly what was wanted. (No. 2)
