We are so touched by the lovely words of Leeds Love Affair this week and we’ve been having a walk down memory lane to when we won our award for Best Place To Shop at the Leeds Love Affair Awards last year.
We can’t believe how much love and support pours in every day for our little shop, started by two pals that love and live handmade. Being called the best handmade department store in town is such an incredible honour, but we couldn’t do any of it without our incredible Collective of makers and our loyal customers who have become our friends.
Not only do our customers help us grow through buying gifts for loved ones (and one or two treats for themselves, we hope!) but our customers are the reason that we jump out of bed everyday, strive to create the most interesting and best quality products and are constantly excited for what might be next.
If our hearts weren’t already full to bursting, a couple of weeks ago we also received an incredible write up from Talented Ladies Club that features some of our top tips for running your own creative business too! We heartily recommend it!
We love coming to the shop to work everyday and surrounding ourselves with the local artists that inspire us and to know that the people of Leeds feel the same way is just heavenly. We could never thank you enough.
Your Handmade Collective xx
P.S. If you love what we do, why not nominate us for The Yorkshire Choice Awards?
