We’ve both been making a conscious effort to shop independent especially being lucky enough to live near Brighton where there are plenty of independent shops to suit all purposes. We spend a lot of time browsing Instagram (who doesn’t?) and there are lots of wonderful shops we’ve discovered recently which we’ve bookmarked for any present buying (for others or ourselves). Here are a few of our favourites…
Veronica dearly Super funny and incredibly clever greetings cards, mugs, pins and more. Plus free UK delivery over £5 – that’s what we like to hear!
What You Sow Perfect for the budding gardener or plant lady, What You Sow features all sorts of plant related goodies by some of our favourite creatives.
Handmade Sam Made Air plants, pins, and air plant dating profiles. What is not to love? Only shame is that they’re based in America which means hefty custom fees for any order…
Adrift In My Mind Another shop based across the pond in America but these pieces of reclaimed wood art are just too beautiful not to include. Adrift in my mind currently doesn’t ship to the UK but we are hoping she will add this option soon!
Atelier Stella Ceramics Adorable ceramics that are incredibly hard to get your hands on, this lady’s work flies off the shelves when it is released.
Little Lost Soul This isn’t the first time this little shop has made it onto one of our wishlists, we just cant get enough of this designer/makers beautiful hand-printed work.
We are always on the look out for new independent shops, what are your favourites?
