Welsh Independent Gift Guide

Well what a year it has been, however the only silver lining could be is that people have now started to appreciate the importance of shopping small. When Covid-19 arrived in the UK, many people got made redundant or furloughed; however small independent shop owners did not- why? Because they're their own bosses.

As fast fashion and high street retailers had to shut shop for months on end, the small handmade brands did not and that's why we're the real MVP's of the year. Some, like me work from home.. so the office/workshop/studio being closed wasn't an issue and service resumed as normal. So in this post I'm going to feature some shops that I've been loving recently or I've purchased from that are from Wales, just like myself!
