Valentine Buying Guide

14th February is coming up, and instead of buying a card from a chain store go on and support local shops and designers. There are lots of really amazing people out there, be it independent shops or designers who sell from places like Etsy or at various craft fairs. Below are a selection of of shops/designs I follow with a glimpse of some of their great products you can buy for your loved one. 

If you can think of anyone else I should add to this list let me know
