#shopindie #giftideas sales spree!

You often hear us say we’re the #giftfinder at your fingertips – it’s been proved by the way #UKGiftHourPower has started 2020.

Several UK indies and creatives have recorded multiple sales on the #shopindie #giftideas showcase hour #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM on Twitter – most notably two who chose it as their platform to launch new designs.

Sarah Skilton of South Wales outdoor gift site Adventure Accessories unveiled new boot cuff ankle warmers last weekend for hiking, climbing, exercising and relaxing. She said: “The #UKGiftAM community has totally blown me away this morning with its amazing support. I have sold five pairs already. I am overwhelmed with happiness.”

London fashion designer and #shopindie champion Masato Jones announced his first design for 2020 – a limited print ’Our House’ T-shirt. Before too long he was adding: “Five sold already with £3 from each sale going to Beanie Masato homeless outreach hamper fund.”
