Back To Basics: Where I Purchase From - Part 2

Hello there and welcome to part two of my 'Where I Purchase From' episode in my Back To Basics series. If you missed it you can see part one HERE.

So I am going to jump straight in to the other shops:

A shop that sells a wide range of products but my go-to place for the Wink Of Stella pens and as well as the Sakura pens. P&P is free on orders over £9 - this includes worldwide shipping. Great customer service, items arrive quickly.

A great shop that sells all those hard to get stamps (and matching dies) here in the UK. They sell Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn, WPlus9, Paper Smooches etc. and have very good customer service too. P&P is £2.50 on orders up to £60 and free over this. The only downfall is that most of their products are out of stock as it is so popular!

A wide range of products are sold here from papers to dies, embellishments to ink pads. P&P is worked out in increments but the most of £3 for orders £25-£39.99. All orders over £40 are free. Great customer service.

They have a great range of craft products and craft related products these days. I have noticed them selling more and more which is why I mention them. I do have to mention that within the last week I have become an Amazon UK affiliate which means that if you click on the link on my blog (where I usually have links to the products I have used) and then you purchase it from there, I will get a small amount of that sale. I will only ever use affiliate links on products that I have bought myself.

I get a lot of questions asking where in the UK is Papertrey Ink and Lil' Inker Designs sold. The answer is no-where at the moment. PTI only sell direct from their website. If you want something from there unfortunately you just have to pay their P&P fees (yes they are high). I haven't bought from them recently as I have been using my Clearly Besotted Stamps more but their white cardstock is still the best I have ever used! Up until a few weeks ago, 'Lil Inker Designs only sold direct too. Their products can now be bought from SSS but there is no UK supplier as of yet. I have bought direct from Lil' Inker Designs though and they have great customer service.

Here is the video:

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope that may have helped some of you. If not, you have had a nosey into what I think of some of the craft shops! I will be back over the weekend with some new cards to share :)

  4. Thanks for the plug Michelle - I am working on trying to keep things in stock but it's sometimes hard to work out what people want or to grab enough from the wholesalers on newer stuff. I'm working on it ;-)
