I love sharing fun things that have caught my eye whilst browsing indie shops, so I thought it might be nice to put them together in a new section called "Six Things". I was initially going to call it Seven Things, but apparently that's a Miley Cyrus song, and I didn't want people to get us confused. ;)
Pride Month has begun, so our first Six Things are from LGBTQ-owned businesses, designers and makers!
If you're a knitter, this soft, hand-dyed Shetland yarn by Old Maiden Aunt Yarns comes in loads of colours and is perfect for your next project. I really want to give it a squish!
Shop Shoal is a collaborative store run by Serena and Natelle who joined their illustration businesses (Oh Plesiosaur and Natelle Draws Stuff) to form this incredible combination shop. This T-Rex Pin has gold metal plating and rainbow enamel, letting you show your support for the LGBT community. Fierce!
Owl and Bear Studio is run by Alena Ebeling-Schuld, who is a conservation geographer and photographer from Canada. Many of the items for sale in her shop help to raise funds for conservation projects and include cute pins and beautiful photographs taken by Alena.
Thanks for checking out my Six Things! Please share your favourite LGBTQ-owned businesses and designer/makers with me in the comments (especially your own!), I'd love to support our community wherever possible.
Thanks for reading!
