why i love notonthehighstreet - part one

30/08/2013


monaco u small necklace by caroline mcgrath c/o notonthehighstreet

if you're anything like me there is nothing better than searching the internet looking for quirky bits and bobs. eBay and etsy have always been great places to find independent sellers which allow me to buy great gifts for either myself or others that are personal and can't just be found if you popped into a shop on the highstreet. of course that might be the easier, more simpler option but who wants to always be ordinary? i want to find products that show how well you know the people you’re buying for. taking me to another website where it's URL tells you exactly what you're looking at; products that are 'not on the high street'. unlike etsy or eBay, notonthehighstreet.com supports british creative sellers allowing us brits to keep to spending our money close to home and helping small businesses grow. what is great about notonthehighstreet.com is that they don’t sell one particular style. they choose sellers who offer great design and the best quality products, many of which can be customised to suit you. it’s easy to find (or create) the look or style that works for you. by doing so it means if you were to buy a gift for someone else, they would be able to see how thought had gone into it. which means a whole lot more than just some money in a card.

i've already bought from notonthehighstreet.com before (the range of cards have always been so great) but when i was asked if i wanted to collaborate i jumped at the chance. as the title suggests this won't be the only post, there is another to follow. i was able to chose a couple of products to feature on my blog and i thought the first one would be in keeping with the theme of my blog. i absolutely love this necklace as it's a clean, classic style meaning it will go with everything. the extra touch of crystals inside the ring just sets it off. this is the first out of collection of three styles and i definitely want the other two now. stayed tuned for my next post as it's a more personal item which would be amazing as a gift. i can wait to put it down and wait for some water to boil. can you guess what it might be?
