Welcome to my Shop Small for Christmas post!

When I asked for submissions I was inundated  – I have included as many amazing small businesses  and makers as I can, whilst ensuring the post doesn’t become a contender for War and Peace! I will get straight to it – heads up – I have linked to each business in the name on each post and to the Instagram account in the caption, to make it easy for you to find contact points.

So, in no particular order, here we go!

White Lilac Home

Keeli & Jade ran a fabulous wedding and event business prior to Covid, so like many amazing entrepreneurs they have diversified and the ladies have indulged in their passion for interiors, whilst still creating beautiful floral displays such as bespoke wreaths and table centres.

They are online of course, so you can shop from the comfort of your sofa!

Ricicle Cards

Gorgeous greetings cards made in Clevedon  – here is an assortment of  David’s Christmas designs, they come in packs of 6 for £8.95. David says ‘My personal favourite is the “Merry Everything’ design.

The way that 2020 has worked out, I think we all deserve to simply ‘merry everything’ this festive season, plus I’m a huge fan of the run up to Christmas and go all out, so that’s where the inspiration came from! They’re printed with an embossed red sparkly foil to make them look like foil balloon bunting’.

A fab discovery if you love yarn! Georgie puts it so well …

‘I’ve worked in my parents local yarn shop since the age of 13, and I knew that I just needed to work with yarn forever. I’m inspired by all sorts of things, whether that be nature, fantasy films, a scrap of fabric I find in my stash; the possibilities when it comes to dyeing yarn are endless! All the yarn is dyed in my garden based studio at my home in the stunning Lincolnshire Wolds.

I also stock beautiful, handmade project bags that are made by my wonderful Mum. We use only the best quality cotton, in a variety of prints and they come in 3 different sizes. We have recently added a large selection of bags in Liberty Tana Lawn fabric, which is one of my favourite fabrics to work with’.
