From the moment Not on The High Street opened their virtual doors in 2006 they have done a pretty great job of transforming the online gifting market from the dubiously personalised and bland offerings we had to endure to an inspiring and engaging place to shop for gifts. I certainly know I get excited when I have an occasion to shop for these days and have an excuse to log onto the site – one for them, one for me!
We have come to love their snappy slogans brightening up our social feeds, campaigns that give us a fuzzy feeling on the underground and most importantly a very exciting selection of creative businesses to shop from.
This May, Not On The High Street are taking over Old Spitalfields Market for their first shopping experience – Open Door. With hundreds of their sellers showcasing wares within themed spaces for prints, home furnishings and accessories plus workshops in wonderful things like felt cacti making and paper cutting, I know I will be luxuriating in all things NOTHS that weekend. Join me?
Those interested in attending a workshop can check them out and secure a spot here.
Friday 6th-Sunday 8th May
