One thing that has been on my to d olist for a while is packaging for my shops. In fact on my list it says “review Lime Lane marketing materials”. I mean in all honesty, high on the list is “spend some time on shops” but one has to start somewhere.

I have lots of ideas buzzing around ~ when do we not ~ but can’t quite pin down a neat, little packaging idea that I am entirely happy with. I have a picture in my head but it is still a little blurry, if you know what I mean.

So two things:

  1. I pull together some pretty packaging ideas ~ it’s fun, inspiring and helpful.
  2. And I throw it open to you ~ what stands out for you when you receive a package from a handmade seller.

My “research” finds the following might be part of the list:

  • it should be like opening a gift
  • there should be a personal thank you note
  • a free gift like a postcard or print
  • a return discount voucher
  • recycled wrapping
  • eco-friendly wrapping

You know what, this is helping already!

What do you like to find in your parcel when you buy something handmade ?

snail mail goodness

The post gods have been especially kind to me this week.

First up, giveaway prizes from Elissa, which travelled all the way across the country. Can you guess what’s inside?

Aren’t they a hoot! Little baby owl family from Melp Designs, Owl brooch from White Square and another owl plush brooch who was too shy to be photographed apparently from Pigeonhole.In the top picture you can also see a very cool card from Remedy {loving the grid paper background} and make your own lion postcard from Monkey Design.

Some of you may I help Nic with a little project. Recently she sent me a little thank you package. In it, one of her fab tram roll tea towels {too good to use, might follow her lead and frame it}, a lovely mother’s day card and a vintage Life magazine, which quite frankly is so  amazing it shall be getting its own post! Let’s just say, I was chuffed, thrilled, excited, giddy, stunned to receive it.

Also in the mail came my scarf  from uimi. This is the Lola scarf brown, it is gorgeously soft, if only you could feel it through the screen. If only the weather would cool down so I could wear it! {It’s forecast to be 28 degrees here today ~ enough already, I am feeling cheated by the absence of the lovely autumn weather I am craving}.
