With the weeks flying by, I still can not believe it is November already, but I am secretly happy the weather has got colder so I can wear all my Check Me Out scarves!

The thought of Christmas shopping has taken a completely different direction for me this year, as I am in the middle of organising lots of exciting selling events, rather than actually planning what I am going to buy.

However the difference this year is we are organising our own pop up events inside office building, so it is a great chance for us to meet a whole new audience and we get to curate all the brands we love, so it is a great excuse to pick my favourite designers and be surrounded by wonderful makers!

We also have some other exciting news, with a new stockist to add to our list, Snowden Flood based at The Oxo Tower – Unit 1.01 Oxo Tower Wharf, Barge house Street, London SE1 9PH.

Snowden Flood became obsessed with a passion for designing and manufacturing high quality gifts and souvenirs that are actually made in the UK.  Thus her business started when she returned home to London to settle permanently in 2000.  Now based in a jewel box of a studio-shop overlooking the River Thames, she designs and sells her range of products and also carefully sources the very best gifts and souvenirs she can find.  Often championing new and emerging designers, every maker whose work is stocked in Snowden’s studio shares a similar ethos to her own in terms of their strong emphasis on quality and the care they take in making their products.

The countdown is now on for the Chelsea Physic Garden Christmas market which we are super excited about.

The show is on this weekend from the 25th – 26 November. If you are in London, do come and visit. I went last year, and it was an amazing mixture of brands, and you really could get all your Christmas shopping complete in one day! You will also be supporting smaller brands, which is much better than buying from the high street!

Also, one of the best parts, my wonderful Mum will be manning the stand on both the Saturday and Sunday, so do say hello!
