Stocking Fillers!

Happy Advent!
The count down to the festivities…

There’s no denying it has got to that time of year when the Christmas Shopping can officially commence! Now, we’d like to remind you to go slow, shop from the independent shops, help the high streets prosper and consider every purchase – who made this? how was it made? and what is it’s life-cycle?
At blink we do have a shop full of delightful Christmas presents, many of which have been lovingly made in the UK by designers and makers.  We try to source from lesser-known brands and from designers that have thought about the materials and  lifecycle of their products.

Our unique edit showcases some wonderful design-led present ideas, we’re really pleased with our most recent addition of Mugs by Bristol-based Alice Rolfe of Rolfe & Wills who designs and makes all her pieces using eco-friendly inks and organic cottons for her Tea-towels. Falmouth’s sub-tropical micro climate allows us to have Banana Leaves and Palms so we felt these we’re very appropriate for our shop. As well as the Dip range; featuring Teal & Grey and Orange & Pink – the abstract shapes reminiscent of the sun filled skies and the myriad of colours in the ocean.

SHOP INDEPENDENTS THIS CHRISTMAS!

 

Happy Birthday blink!

I can’t really believe it’s been a year. We opened the doors late September last year. Admittedly the shop was fairly empty(!) and apart from the shoe shelves and a single rail we just had a couple of tables showing off the rest!

We have evolved steadily over the year, are we really so so grateful for all the amazing support we have had from each of our customers – thank you!! We’ve had such a warm welcome from the Old High Street fellow shop owners too. It is such a great part of the town, warm and friendly people and everyone working with a passion to do something good – and do it well too.

We hope to celebrate our birthday over the next few weeks so keep an eye on our social media or sign up for our newsletter (here – scroll down to bottom!) to be in the loop for EXTRA DISCOUNTS and birthday cake & bubbles too!

In the meantime, we have so much gorgeous knitwear, winter parkas, pattern shirts and teddy jackets all in store and on our web-shop from People Tree, Native Youth, Numph and Danefae. From cosy cable knits to elegant LBD‘s, stomping Blundstone boots to an ebony suede heeled boot with beaded detail at the ankle – come visit, have a chat, or check out our web-shop, it’s all on there too – FREE SHIPPING THIS WEEK ONLY!

A last thank you  to you all for having patience with our web-shop! We know its not the prettiest of web-shops, or the most stylish, and it definitely needs a lot of tweaking. But, as we move into our 2nd year of being a small independent business, that is the next step: making the web shop look AMAZING! So, until then we truly are grateful for your patience, it DOES work its just a bit clunky is all.
