Six Things - Pride Month

Six Things - Pride Month

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!

"Bi The Way" Comic | MJ Wallace

This 52 page comic is a personal story of realisation and coming out from comic artist MJ Wallace. You can purchase a physical copy or read it RIGHT NOW by buying the PDF version.


Bluebells Shetland Yarn | Old Maiden Aunt Yarns

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!



 Rainbow T-Rex Pin | Shop Shoal

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!



Sierra Leone 49% Milk | Dormouse Chocolates

Dormouse Chocolates make award winning, delicious, bean to bar chocolate in Manchester. Their packaging is beautiful and they also have a vegan range.


Spotted Owl Pin | Owl and Bear Studio

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.


Cat Skull Earrings | I Like Cats

Toby of I Like Cats designs all his (mostly) cat-themed products beside the seaside in Brighton. I can't decide if the Cat Skull Earrings or the Cats and Swords Earrings are my fave.


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.

If you'd like to see the range of LGBTQ designs in our own shop, check out the Pride Collection.

Thanks for reading!
