Elliemagpie - Almost one year on!
Wow, it's been so long since I wrote the last blog post. I have almost forgotten how to do it!
So, it's been a busy year and a very happy one - so many lovely new people in the shop and many taking part in all the classes and courses we have to offer!
Thanks to all those who have supported us in our first year!
So, to let you know what's coming up at Elliemagpie in the near future!
Ellie Couture is our new venture of all things pretty and beautiful - handcrafted headbands, brooches and hair pins.
Prices range from £2.95 to £14.95 and are all available on the website: http://www.elliemagpie.co.uk/collections/handmade-ellie-couture
These are just a selection of the products available and we use fabrics, trims, beads, buttons and lace to create these floral delights.
These are some of the headbands, modelled by the lovely Lucy.
We can make the headbands to your specifications too. If there is a wedding or prom or important 'do' you have planned then let us help you design something stunning to make you stand out from the crowd!
And these are some of the brooches and hairpins (they can be used for both) again these make a lovely gift - perhaps for Mother's Day? and we can make to order too!
The Old Laundrette is a new brand from Elliemagpie. Focusing on mixed media art created from the dreams and whimsies of mind and the touch and texture of vintage findings and fabrics. The work represents some of Elliemagpie's true creative flow and a good portion of the magpie within.
Always something new to look at and a different perspective to take; these hanging collages and mini canvases are brought together to tell a story on fabric bases.
Elliemagpie works with vintage fabric, vintage lace, buttons, mirrors, paper, card, stamps, feathers, ribbon, wood, buttons, diamantes, gems and metal findings to create these collages and each piece is unique and never to be repeated!
Mini Collages are priced at just £9.95 each and make lovely gifts.
The books are incredibly detailed and retail at £25 - something new to look at each time you open them!
The wallhangings are collages of many different mini artworks and are available at £75.
Many of you will have seen some of the industrial inspired coat racks and hooks we have instore. These have proved popular and we now also have some reclaimed wood shelving in. I source all the bits and pieces for these creations and my wonderful Dad puts them all together for me!
Here are a selection of the ones we still have available.
These are priced from £35 and can be posted for a courier fee of £9.95.
