There’s something very pleasing about shopping with independent traders. For me, this is the time of year when the lesser-known brands come into their own, offering items that are a little bit different, made with love, and perfect for giving at Christmas.
If you’re a fan of farmers markets, craft markets and those gorgeous independent shops dotted around high streets up and down the country, you will love MyHigh.St.
I discovered this website while browsing online recently, searching for pretty interiors accessories with a difference. It features products made by independent traders based from the across the UK and comes from a team based in (my beloved) West Country. It’s ethical, often handmade, often vintage, pretty, delicious and vibrant.
From wooden toddler toys to foodie treats, cosy cushions to collectible books, this site has cherry picked the best of the independent high street and brought it all together in one place.
Here’s what I bought:
I’m a little bit in love with my new Dorothy tea cosy from Chi-Chi-Moi. Hand knitted, soft and in a lovely festive green, it adorns my teapot beautifully.
It’s the kind of website where you can lose hours of your life, so be warned. But, equally, if there is someone in your life who is particularly tricky to buy for, then this is the place to source their Christmas present this year.
What’s your favourite thing on the site? Go on – take a look and let me know!
