Pop in to the shop and see the range from Nicola Ellis’ Rustic Love. The products consist of beautiful hessian bunting with a variety of words and patterns - chevron and spots, hearts or stars and "Mr & Mrs". They come in a variety of colours and can also be made to order. There are also some yummy hearts and crosses with gorgeous lace doilies in a range of on-trend colours, as well as industrial style ones in similar colours. Nicola says, ‘I hope to add some larger hearts and stars to the range in the next few months and maybe some birds too!’
This gorgeous collection is ideal for someone close on Valentine’s Day. Nicola is running a special for the month of February so with any Rustic Love product purchased you will receive a free small heart or star.
Rustic Love started last year for Nicola to have a creative outlet while being at home with her three children. Nicola says, ‘I have always been into creative things whether it be cross stitch, scrapbooking or making things for my home! I tend to see something I like and think "I can make that" and usually give it a go. All my children have things in their rooms made by me. Actually all over my house are creations by me!’
Nicola adds, ‘I love rustic/ vintage things, and up-cycling is something that works well for me. A lot of my bits and pieces are made out of old pallets and treasures I have found on the side of the road!’
Nicola became involved in Pay It Forward about nine months ago, as another way of getting visibility for her products and meeting other like-minded creators. She says, ‘I love the community feel about the shop and am very excited about the move to the new space two doors down. Working in the shop a couple of times a month means that I can see what's new and be in contact with the customers.’
