And just like that, 2020 is almost over and it’s "Black Friday"…  again.

Our special deal is the same as usual, offering the same fair prices and great design that we offer all year round.⁠

We are incredibly lucky to be stocked by so many wonderful and unique independent stores around the world. Stores that are very much the heart of their communities, and vibrance of the high street.

This year has been especially hard, and like no other for shops and small businesses, battling the ongoing effects of the pandemic. And if there is anything 2020 has shown us, it is how important our local shops and independent businesses are to us!

This Black Friday we wanted to show support and encourage our followers and customers to not forget the small guys. So please do check out some of our brilliant stockists online and in-store (when you can) . We also asked our team to share the love and recommend some of their favourite independent businesses.

David, designer and co-founder  - "One of my favourite vintage shops in the world is the Rag Parade in Sheffield. It is a hot spot for unique vintage gear, from antiques to clothing, I’m always finding inspiration from the amazing pieces Jojo has in there. It’s packed with old military wear- take the N1 jacket I’m wearing for example, I’m sure he'll have the original somewhere!"

Josh, e-commerce & web content - "One of my favourite local businesses has to be Small Food Bakery, located within The Primary art space on Seely Road, Nottingham. They're a bunch of really lovely people that make incredible bread and baked goods amongst other things. Because they buy their produce and ingredients directly from farmers themselves, there is great diversity in what they have to offer- so their products change with the seasons. A special shout-out goes to their egg custard tarts- unreal."

Silvia, sales team -" Stranger than Paradise  is my local independent record store in Mare Street Market - London. They have the most interesting selection of records and they are the nicest people. They’ll always go the extra-mile to find you what you want (I will NEVER EVER forget the Black Country New Road 7” of Sunglasses). They've just put our their first ever release, which is the compilation of Jukebox cuts that used to play in the iconic Vivienne Westwood’s SEX boutique in King’s Road! I have it already of course !  I'll also be getting some stocking fillers from New Tribe, a beautiful interior shop in Hackney Road London. They have an amazing selection of textiles and objects from independent designers all around the world, and their customer service is amazing. The packaging!! It is as beautiful as the objects and the owner Ella hand-signs all delivery notes. Such a lovely touch!"
