Over the years I’ve gained a pretty good handle on the content of online homeware stores in the UK and while they are filled with beautiful product by great British designers – I’ve pretty much seen it all before. But lately there has been a flood of exciting new online home shopping sites with a flash sale format – where products are sold for a limited time period at discounted rates [pretty thrilling really!]. All of these sites seem to have dynamic buying teams who have been introducing me to great independent brands wanting to get involved in the who I never knew existed!
One of these sites that I’m pretty sure I am about to be seriously addicted to is Bamarang. A dedicated team of design scouts, Bamarang is based in London’s creative core of Shoreditch and scour the UK to curate super inspiring items from fashion accessories to homeware – and my favourite because it’s such a different offering to other sites of the kind – vouchers for food experiences. The scouts work closely with the brands to get a discount of up to 70%. Each item is only online for a week at a time and exclusive to members of the site [no fee just a sign up].
My current favourites are super cool textiles from British brand Custhom , simple and rustic jewellery from RipeGoods, and gold stained ceramics from the Usuals all at reduced retail prices. Addictive much?
Since there’s nothing better than a Friday afternoon shop – Bamarang have kindly given all my readers £10 off their first purchases so click here to get shopping!
