Hello Out There to our Lovely Followers

We thought we’d get our 2015 blog posts off to a flying start by telling you about some exciting news … we now have a retail store on Not On The High Street (N.O.T.H.S). Most of our UK followers I’m sure will have seen N.O.T.H.S advertised on your screens in the last few months, we have to say they’ve become our ‘go to’ for thoughtful, independent and unique gifts by British designers that craft the products themselves.

Where it all began …

Award-winning entrepreneurs Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish founded notonthehighstreet.com from a kitchen table in 2006. Their founding ideal: to hunt out the most original items from the best creative small businesses, and bring them together in one place, making it easy for people to browse and buy.

How they’ve grown …

When they launched there were around 100 creative small businesses on board, many of them working from their own kitchen tables after a full day’s work. Now there are thousands and from a single room to an open-plan Modernist building in Richmond, south west London, the number of times they’ve outgrown offices (four, so far) shows how far we’ve come since that kitchen table.

Where they want to be …

Becoming one of the UK’s most exciting and fastest-growing e-commerce businesses is just the start of their exciting journey. They want to make it easy for you to be original – wherever you live, and whatever you’re into!

Soooo … we thought we fitted the bill perfectly and were happy to be asked to be part of the high calibre community! We are incredibly proud to be part of British led company championing independent home-grown companies. We’re so excited to expose our watches to a whole new audience of appreciators who care about quality, innovation and style, just like us!
