News — gift ideas
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I am joining in with the 'shop small, shop early, shop happy' campaign. So many businesses have been and continue to be affected financially by Covid. It highlights more than ever the need to be wise with your spending......I am including a selection of lovely items for all of the family from big to small available at some of our favourite independents. We hope you like them! Remember not to leave it too late!
‘The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.’ I believe that if we all act more consciously in our decisions we can effect change both to the planet and to individuals and communities lives.
"I have decided to share some of my favourite small brands, some are bricks and mortar shops, others are online, some I have purchased from, or intend to, and others I admire and want to show my support to, so here goes!"
"in order to be more sustainable, I have made the decision to reduce my colour palette, ensuring that all the colours available are gender neutral.... my colour palette is heavily influenced by my love of the outdoors, of simple things and particularly this year, my travels"
Christmas shopping….do you love it or loathe it? I love having the time to browse shops in search of the ideal gift for someone special. Sadly, where I live there is a severe shortage of the lovely independent shops that I can while away a few hours in, instead my town centre is full of the standard high street stores, which do have their benefits but since starting my own business, I have come to realise the importance of shopping small and showing support for independents. So with a lack of choice on my doorstep, this year it’s been great to do much of my shopping online supporting small brands, and I thought that I would share some of the treasures I have found.
