Sharing Sunday – Shairng the small business love.

Sharing Sunday is back!
It’s been a few weeks but I’m going to be starting my sharing Sunday posts again to give a little boost to business and products that I love.
Go and check them out and show some love if you like what you see!

B. Stean Footwear

First up is a local shop I have been wanting to visit for a while.
My boy is about to start school so the nightmare shopping trip for school shoes was due.
Having chubby feet usually means a trip to Clarks along with an obligatory meltdown due to the bright lights, loud music, and crowds, let alone the fact he HATES having his feet touched and measured!

B. Stean Footwear in Chelmsford are a family run store with good old fashioned customer service.

Cue a visit to B.Stean. The shop is small, family run and stacked high with shoes! The staff are extremely friendly and professional and it reminds me a bit of the old school shops where they know your name and nothing is too much trouble!
I explained about the coming meltdown and how Pud hates having his feet measured.
To my absolute amazement, Mr. Stean did a measurement by sight! That’s how good they are!
Not only that he managed to get the new shoes on his feet before he even realised what was happening! Long story short the perfectly fitting Clarks shoes were on, checked and off again Pud could react!

After sharing my delight at the awesome service I had friends tell me they travel for several miles just to visit for new shoes and I promise you if you do too you won’t regret it!

Secret Hamper

Sharing Sunday - Secret hamper

When I was pregnant with Pip and unbeknown to me, my mum entered me into a competition to win a hamper. I only realised this when I was told I had won! I got to meet the guys behind the company to pick up my hamper and I have to say their business is a great one!
You can buy a hamper for so many different people/ scenarios and have it delivered either from yourself or anonymously.

My newborn hamper contained a range of items from the basics like nappies, wipes, nappy cream and cotton buds, to little extras like a bar of chocolate for the new mum and a pack of pasta and jar of sauce for a quick and easy dinner on the first night home!
Other hampers include student, elderly neighbour, 4 legged friends and the Essex hamper which is full of locally sourced products.

Sharing the love – Things I love

I love it when people talk about my businesses. I work really hard to make sure it’s all good sharing and I thought is would be good to pay it forward and spend a bit of time each Sunday to do the same to a couple of small business or products that I love or that are close to my heart.

Bubakes

First up in my first ever sharing sunday is a local baker who makes the most beautiful cakes. (I’ve seen her flowerpot cake in person and I didn’t believe it was actually cake at first!)
Liz at Bubakes not only makes incredible, edible artwork she donates 25p from every order to the charity MIND.
Go check out her story for more information on why this charity is so close to her heart.

Norah & Me

Next up is a lovely little online store caled Norah & Me. I stubbled across this small business in a facebook group for self employed parents who home educate their kids and I fell in love with the adoarable charaters on offer!

Most of the items offer a customisable option and the products are CE certified. I’m definitely going to placing an order for Pip soon. I just need to decide on which adorable litlle friend (or 2) will be joining our home (I think the floppy eared bunny is going to be one of them though! 🙂 )
