National Women’s Day SALE

It is National Women’s Day next week, and because we are 2 young women trying to make it in the world of retail, we have decided to offer you all 15% off all purchases from the Handmade By Me + Windowsill shop between now and Saturday August 11th.

Please note the shop is usually closed on public holidays so we will be closed for National Women’s Day which is the 9th, but to make it up to you all, we will be offering the 15% discount off all online orders as well just for the day! Please use the discount code HappyWomensDay when checking out : )

We have also slowly been adding more products to our new BIOTICA range over the past few weeks, which we think have turned out rather nicely, so we thought we’d share with you here : )

Chef aprons

Tote bags and purses

Next up will be our muslin baby blankets, burp cloth/bandana bibs and hotel slippers…so watch this space!

We also hand painted some pretty little plant pots to go with our very obvious obsession with green and pink. Windowsill potted them up for us and they are now available exclusively from our shop.

WHAT’S IN YOUR PURSE?

HMBM_purses

Our PURSES make the best gifts…whether it is for a friend or for yourself, you can never have too many – and you can use them to carry just about anything…from keys to make-up to pens to cash to sunnies. So we have decided to do our bit to help you tighten those purse strings this winter with 20% off all purses all week! Just use the discount code PURSESTRINGS on checkout. Discount code ends Monday 13 June 2016. Only while stocks last.

In other news, our first lot of trays and pot stands (ideal for holding hot or warm pots or containers) are finally available to purchase directly from our shop. They are all heat resistant to 120C, and stain & scratch resistant. The trays are made using melamine and the pots stands are cork backed with a melamine surface.

pretty pretty purses…

…for everyone!! They’re pretty, and popular and pretty good pricewise! You can use them for money, for makeup, for pens and pencils, for the odd bits and pieces you always lose in your handbag, or for whatever great reason you can (make up) think of. These are my new tote bags’ best friend! You may have noticed them on my market tables for the last few months, and I have finally had a chance to shoot them properly….soooo here you go…

AND I am even more excited to let it slip that they will very soon be available from my very own South African Handmade By Me online shop! Yay!!!!! I’m afraid I can’t reveal much more than that for now….but as always…watch this space!
