Indie Retail Month

July is Indie Retail Month.

We’re big supporters of other indie businesses over here being one ourselves, but why should you shop independent?

Shopping from independent businesses puts millions of pounds into the economy and creates more jobs than shopping at chains. Your helping a kid get guitar lessons, helping put food on the table, not buying a 3rd home for some multi millionaire.

If that doesn’t sway you it causes the business owner to do a happy dance while packing your order (trust me).

I know finding Indie businesses is difficult so here are my favourite.

Indie Business #1 – Curiology

This badass husband and wife duo both create amazing things and curate products from the best Alternative brands around.

They have lots of Gothic/Witchy jewellery as well as prints, pins, patches and Hair Accessories. Oh and this awesome halloween advent calendar!

Jo Burgess from Patternorium is a total badass. Not only does she sell her own cushion, totes, stationary and lamp shades; she designs prints for licensing to high street retailers and juggles a family!
