If you follow the lovely Rebecca from Rebecca’s Reviews, you will know about her wonderful #ShopSmall series. It’s a fantastic idea which enables small businesses to get discovered and for you and me to find new and awesome places to shop. Well, it works! Last week, I was reading Rebecca’s review of the Brighton based company Evermade and saw they did a range of fun and funky pins. As soon as I saw the Only Fools And Horses pin it was in my basket quicker than I could say ‘lovely jubbly’. I then proceeded to go on a little pin spending spree around the internet and thought I’d share with you my finds.
For a full review on Evermade, you can read Rebecca’s fabulous post here. Whilst you are there, make sure you check out Rebecca’s series as there are always tons of discount codes and detailed reviews to encourage you to #ShopSmall.
Peckham Pin: Who doesn’t love a bit of Only Fools And Horses. Shaun and I always put on an old classic episode whenever we need a laugh, so when I saw this pin, I knew I needed it in my collection. The pin is cleverly illustrated by Jenni Sparks who enjoys incorporating a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour into her illustrations. Jenni has designed all of the pins in the Evermade range and if you are a pin fan like me, I encourage you to go check them out.
Brighton Pin: Whilst I was pin browsing, I couldn’t resist this pretty fantastic Brighton pin. Brighton is one of my most favourite places and I have blogged about my visits in Snapshots From Brighton In March and Brighton At Christmas. So I thought this was a brilliant souvenir to add to the collection.
The next stop on my virtual pin shopping spree found me at Tumble & Rose. This small biz is ran by a lady called Helen who lives in Winchester (which is actually pretty close to me!). Tumble & Rose is a collection of handmade jewellery, accessories, homeware and gifts. There is a cool selection of enamel pins available to buy in the Etsy Shop. Everything in this shop is so pretty and there is also a range of beautiful crystal jewelllery too!
Stripey Top Club Pin:Can I have a lifetime membership to this club please? Stripey tops are a firm favourite in my wardrobe, I absolutely love them. This pin is a must-have for any stripey top lover to pin with pride. If you like plants and cats, I also urge you to check out Tumble & Rose. You will not be disappointed.
The final stop on my spontaneous spending spree was at Sugar & Sloth. This shop is so bright and colourful, it’s awesome! It’s ran by Anita, an illustrator whose unique designs provide a humorous look at love, cats and motivation. There is a really fun and vibrant range of pins available, it was hard to choose!
Rainbow Llama Pin: The website caption says: This adorable rainbow llama pin is the perfect reminder to take a little time out for yourself, you deserve it! I love all it’s colorfulness and especially love the packaging it arrived in: please keep away from small children, wasps and early mornings – brilliant!
Hope you enjoyed looking at my new pin goodies from Evermade,Tumble & Rose and Sugar & Sloth. They are all great additions to my existing collection of Innabox pins and Old English Co. pins. Are you a pin collector? Which shops would you recommend for cool, cute and colourful pins? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
