Well I'm sure you've ALL heard about Felt, only our favourite place to shop in all of the NZ based online-land! I've had the opportunity to meet the creator, graphic designer Lucy Arnold, on several occasions now, and she is just LOVELY! She is joined on the team by Jo (support desk and blog) and Marcel (site maintenance and development) - working from a heritage building overlooking the Avon River in Christchurch, where they watch kingfishers alight from the tree outside their window. Sounds kind of amazing right?
Felt is constantly on the grow, with more than half a million visitors in the past year, and over 22,000 products listed by the hand-makers of Aotearoa. That's pretty epic! There are sooooo many amazing products on there, such easy peasy Christmas shopping. And to make it even easier for you, Felt-elves have also created a most excellent Christmas guide too. Boom!
There are a bunch of different categories that cover all the bases, and I've already bookmarked some adorable items for this Christmas and for birthdays next year... Here are some of my faves, though there are SO many beaut items in there, it's pretty hard to pick....
Girl in the Wind Tee, "She'll Be Right" Cushion Cover, Fantail Mini Print Postcard (by Faery Sarah), Dreaming of the Blues - Pillowcase Set.
Printed Pincushion - Kitty, Emergency Bucket-O-Porridge Kit, Queen Elizabeth Bunting, Lady Luck - Conversations with Creative New Zealand Women (p.s. look out for an interview with Yours Truly in this one!), Retro Tea Pot Print.
The only downside with online shopping is that you can't bump into randoms while you shop. I'm heading there now, but I guess we won't run into each other... And I might just beat you to the best items! xx
