Indie Friday. ‘Just a Card’ Week

Have you heard of the Just A Card Campaign?

This week we’ve been taking part in Just A Card Indie Week.  Spreading the word about fabulous, small, creative, businesses.

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even ‘just a card’ are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.

Read more about the campaign here: Just A Card

Better still, follow us on Instagram and Twitter to find out more!

In keeping with the spirit of the JUST A CARD campaign, a quick shout out for one of our favourite independent artists:
