#ukgiftam hits indie sales landmark

More than 50 UK indies and creatives can now call themselves #UKGiftHourPower players!

That’s the number of makers who have achieved sales on #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM since the the Twitter #shopindie showcase began.

A flurry of purchases at the weekend saw the landmark figure reached.

“It’s no mean feat and it could easily be more than that,” said #UKGiftHour creator David Knight. “These figures rely on what feedback we’ve received – many, many more makers could have achieved sales without us knowing.”

Among the latest gift ideas and creatives attracting the call of the ker-ching were (clockwise from top left):

  • Handmade sea glass jewellery by west of Scotland lochside designer ArgyllSeaGlass
  • Baby keepsake pebble by Manchester creative Pebbles4Thought
  • Headband/ear warmer by Hertfordshire slow fashion knitter KnitsandBobsKLR
  • Wooden hanging bird house by Aberdeenshire wildlife food friends Hedge Buddies
  • Seaglass flower by Fife sea glass and pottery artist fifeseaglass

  • Mixed media wildlife artwork by Yorkshire textile artist and designer UniqueByHannah (accompanying card created by purchaser DellaByDesign)
  • Handwoven two-tone shawl by weavers and fabrics fashionistas Neith Textiles
