New Year, New View;

Despire the terrible play on words above, 2012 at Landbaby was a fantastic year with so many amazing artists’ work in the shop. There’s been an astoundingly absurd amount of textile wildlife; crocheted foxes, badger greetings cards, owl cushions, and of course our stunning wall mounted deer head! Some stunning brushed silver jewellery, bearded men cushions, the obligatory bunting...the list is endless.

We ended the year on such a spectacular high with our facebook ‘likes’ going through the metaphorical roof and so much attention from the creative media with features in Seven Streets ( don’t worry, more said about this in a later post) and a great o2 ‘Loving Local’ piece which you can check out here


A bit of international recognition never goes amiss either- Vogue named us 35/100 of the best shops outside of London ( describing Landbaby as great niche shop to find alternative presents”. All of which is of course true- you’ll find gifts for any age, either genders perched on a shelf, in a cabinet or being unpacked when you pop in for a gander. With the much appreciated recognition from Vogue, our influx of post- out orders online has made us very happy, and hopefully a lot of you keen customers too! If there's anything you'd like to say about your pretty purhcases or how much you love the shop, drop us an email ( and we'll not only love you forever, but we'll get it out there on one of our blog posts.

So, we’ve just moved into 2013 and not only did the Mayan’s get it wrong, but so did we. We thought Landbaby couldn’t get any better, but how wrong we were! Only 20 days into the new year and already we have 3 features in some of the best craft magazines you’ll find, a stunning new floor in the shop (come in and take a look, without your kitten heels on mind, we don’t want any damages!) and bloody brilliant new work lined up for your delectation; digitally printed landscape cushions, curious little Victorian style pins, mountainous treasures, beautifully folded paper to name but a few. It is wet-your-pants exciting in Landbaby at the minute with all exciting work coming in and new displays in the shop. Keep your eyes peeled for regular updates on here for features on new artists we love, trends we're getting into and generally just love for all things handmade, interesting and inspiring!
