Not On The High Street.

Cove of Creativity.

Individual, innovative & quirky are just a few word to describe Not on the High Street, one of my favourite online stores. The vast range of homewares & fashion showcase only the best small businesses that are out there right now, companies making a difference to create unique products. The easy to use site will guide you in the right direction, bring together in one place great gift ideas for the eco conscious to the style-savvy. Create your own profile and save items to your very own wishlist.
Being an avid thrifted and market rambler I love finding exciting and interesting pieces for my home, I love going out and about, but working night shifts I have found less time to thirft my little heart out, but since finding Not on the High Street I can do it from the comfort of my own PJ's.
I have gathered together some of my favourite items that you can find on the website right now.

Milk, Butter & Sugar Ceramics by Sorbet Living.
Sorbet Living is the creation of Debbie Gent, her enthusiasm for unusual homeware lead to her wonderful array of ceramics, glassware, lighting & wallpaper all with a rustic country feel.
I love this set of ceramic accessories for the kitchen, they come in four different colours and would look great in any kitchen. 

Wobbly Porcelain Bowls by Roost Living.
These handcrafted quirky bowls caught my eye instantly while browsing, I sat swooning over the fine attention to detail. Specialising in UK handcrafted pieces that are truly timeless.

Vintage Style Ceramic Coasters by The Orchard.
If you are in search of something different then The Orchard is definitely a site to stop by and have a gander, take a walk and uncover this cove of vintage inspired luxury homeware. I love offering my guests a coaster and these are truly old before their time, just how I like it. 

Champagne Corks 'Love Hearts' Wall Hanging by Lumme.
For something unique & special you could splash out on this beautiful wall hanging handcrafted in the UK by partners in design & marriage Mr & Mrs Lum. Their fine collection is personally designed and created to the highest of standards. I would love a piece like this hanging in our new home.

Botanical Butterfly Handbag Mirror by studio-sweepings.
What I love about studio-sweepings is it started as a way to used up paper oddments in their design studio, as you know I am a huge fan of recycling and these wonderful handbag mirrors come beautifully packaged. The range of buttons, mirrors & magnets are wonderfully unique and come with an individual card to write your own message. Each design can be personalised with initials, ages, important messages or messages, what a great gift for someone you love. Great designs, great price, totally in love with all of their items.

I would love to know if you have found a site you love, do let me know!
