If so, my exciting new campaign is for you.
I will be sharing lots of UK independent shops, so we can all find them, share them and shop with them. And you can share them too.
All kinds of shops, for all our shopping needs
We can help each other shop small, shop UK and shop independent, every single day.
This is why I have launched the #ipledgeindie campaign. To inspire and create awareness around the importance of shopping independent.
You can join in with #ipledgeindie campaign by:
Online or in person, make the effort to seek them out. Make them your automatic first choice.
Share them online and use #ipledgeindie so we can all find them.
Share with your friends and followers the #ipledgeindie movement. Encourage everyone to shop independent as much as they can. It is so important, for all of us.
Whether it be dog food or clothes, a gift for a friend or wiper blades for my car (which I bought last week), herbal tea or my gin tipple, plus lots more besides.
I always look for the small business, the British owned, the one who deserves my custom, will appreciate every penny I spend with them and are experts in what they sell. They care and give a personable customer experience.
Knowing they are excited, appreciative and pleased to get my order, is wonderful.
Independent shops are amazing from an economic perspective and from a bright future perspective. What a soulless and dull future it would be without the passion, variety, uniqueness, expertise and genuine loveliness of independent shops.
Let’s keep them alive by giving them our money and not those who don’t deserve it.
Which is where I Pledge Indie comes in.
Will you join me on my #ipledgeindie pledge?
The small shops will thank you for it, the UK economy will thank you and we will all thank you for keeping these shops alive.
Every week I share lots of independent shops on Instagram and Facebook. You can easily find some brilliant independent shops on my directory and on my blog I am always sharing indie edits and adding to my UK online shops listing.
Make the #ipledgeindie pledge. Shop at UK independent shops, share them and keep them alive, for all our beautiful futures.
Happy shopping 😊
All opinions in this blog post are mine. Many of the shops I mention are members of my shopping directory. Some are not. I try to ensure all shops I mention are independently owned, however, I may accidentally share a shop that isn’t. Some hide who owns them very well. Though I mention lots of shops here and on my website as a whole, you must form your own opinion as to whether the shop and their products are for you.
