Shop small this season / Christmas Gift Guide

When you support a small business, you’re supporting a dream.

New shop alert: To Sinnefaki

For a long time, James’ room was empty. Aside from some boxes and Georgie’s old little bed. It remained locked until recently when we moved him in and I found myself a new room makeover project. So far I’ve moved his bed 379 times, changed his curtains twice and fallen off the ladder once. And I am absolutely loving it! It’s also given me the opportunity to discover and shop from small local businesses that specialise in the kind of original and unique kiddie stuff you only see online. To Sinnefaki opened its doors just in time!
