This Saturday, December 5th, we will be celebrating Small Business Saturday, because that is exactly what we are – a small business. We love our small biz status and proudly share it with other wonderfully unique independents in this city and beyond.
“When you buy something made by a person, there is something special there, and you do feel it. The consciousness with which a thing is made is often more important than the thing itself”,
J. Donald Walters.
Small Business Saturday gives shoppers an opportunity to shop small and discover the entrepreneurs behind the businesses. These shop owners, designers, café owners, florists, butchers, bakers, even candlestick makers all have something in common, they have taken the plunge and are working hard to make your high street a more creative place to shop and to give you a more personal shopping experience.
Products sold from small businesses are created with love and hard work – never mass produced. Each item has a story behind it and their creators would always enjoy sharing them with you. When you buy something from an independent business, your money does not go towards big scary corporate overheads, instead it stays in your own community keeping it a vibrant and interesting place to live and shop.
To celebrate Small Business Saturday, we are offering 10% off all purchases over £30. All you need to do is quote “Small Business Saturday Treat” and we will apply the discount as a big Thank You for supporting us and this wonderful cause.

Sometimes it may not be the easiest option, you may have to walk a bit further or scroll through a few more results pages on Google, but there are million reasons why your Small Business purchase would be far more meaningful and just that extra bit special!
