A North Laine Christmas

It might only be the 1st of November but here at Little Beach Boutique we’re already excited about Christmas because we’ll be joining some of the best independent shops in Brighton for a one-off late night Shopping Event this December.

The North Laine  is always beautiful at Christmas, with fairy lights draped between buildings and the varied and vibrant gift shops offering a wonderful range of products, many of which can’t be found on the high street. This year there will also be carol singers to get us in the mood for the festivities!

We’ve teamed up with neighboring shops such as Present in the LaineLavender Rooms, Pretty Eccentric, Whirligig, Silverado, Bluebird Tea and Toby Tiger  in offering a 10% discount on all purchases  – as well as a glass of fizz for our customers. We’ll also be giving out a free gift to shoppers.

The offers and late night shopping start at 5.30 on December 8th and finish at 8.30. Visit our Facebook page for updates and further info…we hope to see you there!

In other news, we’ve been sourcing some wonderful new collections this season from some emerging designers, small businesses and makers, including a new range of skincare from Nathalie Bond Organics,  accessories by Imagination Illustrated and beautiful Jewellery by Misskukie, all designed and made in Britain.

 

I’ve been feeling inspired by the new season and have been making some glass tiles to reflect the change in the environment around us.  I was pleased with these tiles on an earthy green glass. The tree branch is screen-printed and layered with orange frit (crushed glass) with the words ‘Let’s Fly Away’ written underneath.  The woodland scene is also screen printed from my original drawing and layered with a slightly sparkly green confetti (very thin glass) to add some intrigue.  I have mounted them both into white box frames which really sets them off.

 

I’ve also been running regular fused glass workshops which have really gained momentum this year. There have been some wonderful creations and I’ve been so amazed by the variety and creativity in what people produce in one day.
