Why I am shopping Small this Christmas, and a few of my favourite shops!

So I’ve been shopping small for a quite a while now and I have to say I love it. You can get pretty much whatever you like in colours you like and things are generally made beautifully to order. It can be more expensive and take a wee bit longer than high street shops but when you shop small you are supporting a person and you know your order is made with love by hand. So here are a few of our favourite finds, we definitely have a few things to send to Santa from these lovely shops.

Firstly I’d like to say I’ve shopped from some wonderful shops these last few months and there’s literally too many to mention but if you’d like to see more you can browse my Instagram feed here. If you click on the pictures all Instagram shops are tagged. If you send me a wee message I may also have a discount code for that brand too!


Gracie Baby Original

If you’re a 90s kid like me you’ll love anything funky and out there. Gracie Baby is a lovely edgy shop we’ve bought some amazing and quirky items. Always beautifully made and for a small shop very quickly. Our latest purchase are these amazing pirate leggings and Punk Rock Kid Raglan top but we have lots of different things in some amazing fabrics. If you add LEWIS10 at the checkout you’ll get a lovely discount.
