Independents’ Day

I have lost count of how many times I have been asked “why don’t you have a brick and mortar shop?“. My answer is one and very simple, I don’t have the money. I would love to have a shop full of colourful fabrics with a great range of haberdashery items and many notions and things in pretty jars and boxes.

The dream is still there and in the meantime I am working towards it. I know that just like me there are lots of independent retailers that are doing the same, and there are many other that their dream has come true but the reality is though because we have to compete with the big corporations.

Big chains are not evil, I buy from them too. But I think there is still room for indie retailers and is only us that can make it possible.

So for today, I will invite you to at least buy one thing from an independent retailer and make today a very happy Independents’ Day.

Enjoy shopping :)

    Happy to support anything that tells me to go shopping. Living abroad I rely heavily on internet retailers but love to browse (and spend!) in my local indie retailers when I get the chance. Keep dreaming.

  2. You shouldn’t feel like you are missing out on anything. It is lovely to have a shop which is full with gorgeous things that inspire and nurture creativity, but the Internet is the present and the future and with so may time starved people who simply have no time to go shopping, buying online just works the best. However I do miss being able to touch the fabrics and I hate waiting for my fabrics to arrive.

    Yes, let’s hear it for the independents! And keep weaving your magic on the internet, Lizzet.

    I love those fabrics you have lined up there, Lizzet. What have you made with them?
