just wanted to say it's not all Tesco/Marks & Spencer/Debenhams/Next and Penneys here in Ireland - there are so many awesome small businesses which are happily small-scale and different from all the mega-stores and uk franchises. They are always worth checking out and supporting because they have individuality talent ability to surprise with new creations and finds - and the spirit to carry on on a daily basis and offer unique beautiful natural and nature inspired eco-friendly wares...

Love the sentiment behind this post - there are so many more interesting places to spend your than on the High Street. Better quality and better value too!

Thanks for including Mungo + Midge in this lovely collection!

@Rob thanks for the man soaps I received from you recently, they smell and look lovely and will make great gifts!

@Angela, I totally agree. you get so tired of High street stuff - no satisfaction there.

@Carrie, I also tried to buy handmade as much as I could this time, and will keep doing so. thank you for your kind comment

Happy holidays!
