Posted by Gavin Burrell on

Shop small, shop indie

There's no denying it's been a tough year and for small independent stores, it's not been easy keeping going. One way you can show your support for small businesses is to buy indie this Christmas, supporting small or local companies and the hard-working entrepreneurs who run them.

In this series of blog posts, we're here to help you out by showcasing some of our our favourite indie businesses and the beautiful and unique products they're offering to make your Christmas special. For this post we've picked out some of our favourite homeware finds from independent shops.

Denys & Fielding Rosemary & Lavender candle

A garden of delights

Never has our connection to the great outdoors been more important than this year when so much time has been confined indoors. Denys & Fielding is a Kent-based family company that puts the love of the garden into everything they do. Their much-loved Rosemary & Lavender candle brings the aromas of the kitchen garden into any room. If you love it, Denys & Fielding even do a candle subscription service.

The House of Eden was set up as a one-size clothing company but owner Louisa also has an excellent eye for homeware and you'll find a super selection of gift ideas in store. As big plant lovers, our eye was turned by the Old Style Dutch Pot range, especially these teal beauties.

Honeycomb Coaster set from Yellow Room Designs

Honey to the bee

As a Manchester-based company, we can't help but love anything with a bee theme, as it's the symbol of this busy and industrious city. Needless to say, this honeycomb-themed ceramic coaster set from Yellow Room Designs sets our heart a-buzzing. All coasters are made just for you by owner and designer, Tess, in her Yorkshire studio.

Macrame hanging from Tassel & Twine

Macrame, you stay

With the resurging popularity of indoor plants, the art of macrame is back in vogue too. Most commonly seen creating rustic plant hangers, the magic art of knotting can be put to stunning use in the hands of an artist. Vicki at Liverpool-based Tassel & Twine can do wonders with a length of braid and this wall hanging is just one example of her handiwork. Vicki also runs macrame classes if you're keen to learn a new skill in 2021.
