Tuesday! And day 2 of the @justacard
campaign. Supporting lovely independent makers, artists and businesses. I'm no artist, but I am a card lover and art fan and I love little shops. I love how the products in little shops are carefully curated - with love and care so each customer can wander around looking at interesting things and picture how they'd fit into their lives at leisure.
Lovely shops are much more than places to go to buy stuff. They're little galleries, they're someone's heart and soul (and blood, sweat and tears). You can have a great chat, get suggestions and recommendations and spend loads of time picking things up and smiling. Just buy something if you do all of that, for God's sake. Little shops are not waiting rooms!
is one of my favourite in Edinburgh. I used to pop in for all manner of joyous nicknacks when I still lived in the city. I miss popping in, but thankfully their online presence is just as lovely an experience as popping in, so I still get my fix, and I pop in whenever I can (it's imminent by the way!) This is a card by @dickvincent
- (the picture is from @curiousershop
btw). I love Dick's work and usually end up buying his cards for my husband, who - just like Dick - is also a mountain climber and a cat lover, but is called Bryan.
Go and show these lovely people some love, and get right in to #justacard
week. You won't regret it. It feels good. 💛
