1, 2, 3... Why Shop Small?


 By shopping small you're buying beautiful & interesting products. Forget mass, throwaway consumption; shopping small is all about high quality & artisan goods. Production is small batch meaning you get something unique & original. BIG love to that!



Shopping small puts you in control of buying locally, ethically & in an environmentally friendly way as you have an insight into where, what you buy, comes from. No to lining fat cats' pockets, no to profit over people & no to sacrificing the wonderful world we live in.




You're also supporting an indie trader or small business, something which you can feel good about & something that is even more valuable in these challenging times. Is it all about them doing a happy dance? No, but it's a bonus right?
