Some Good Resources on Supporting Small Businesses: House and Home

35 1

NNow, more than ever, small businesses need you. Please help to keep small, independent businesses alive in these difficult times.
This is by no means a complete list, we will continue to add to it over-time. This is a collection of exceptional small businesses we admire, many of which we've worked with over the past 30 years.

Tin Smiths. Lighting, fabrics and more. 

Bonitaivie Prints. Cards, planners, notebooks. 

Grain and Knot. Long term friend of the Good Life. Sophie’s carved wooden goods last forever. 

Baileys. They helped us to furnish Hawarden Estate Farm Shop when it opened. Now Mark and Sally Bailey are an institution.

Rural Kind. Bags and home goods from friends of the Good Life Experience. 

Barbeline. Fantastic wallpaper and other homewares, too. 

Anglepoise.  A much bigger company than many on this list, but still the best task lighting anywhere, ever. 

Gail Bryson. Prints, home goods and more from designer/colour expert and friend of Glen Dye and The Good Life Experience.

Bespoke Binny. Fantastic and colourful homewares. Online courses, too. 

Prick. It’s a cactus store. Good name, good plants. 

Michael May Knives. From Sheffield, we bring you a fine knife maker with a long relationship with The Good Life Experience. 

Ed Hunt Knives. One of Britain’s greatest knife Makers and friend of The Good Life Experience. 

Dar Leon. Wonderful pots and more. 

Netherton Foundry. Made to last forever cookware from Shropshire.

Fill. An excellent small business offering refillable laundry and cleaning products.

Farmers’ Lavender. Welsh lavender farmer makes amazing salves, creams and more, in Wales. 

Alex Pole Blacksmiths. One of Britain’s finest, with a long association with The Good Life Experience. Homewares galore and barbecue stuff, too.
