We’ve been using Social Media for NAJB for a few years now and not only is it a powerful tool for any small business in 2018 but the community is one that makes you feel loved, inspired and part of a bigger team, which is amazing when you’re a bit of a one man band working out of your garage at home. We are very lucky that we have .
We just love the community we have found ourself in within Instagram and have discovered so many fabulous pieces from the most talented people across the world. When you buy a product from a small business you’re buying all the love, time and effort that went into it. And we know exactly how warm and fuzzy it feels each time we receive an order ourselves. Even a comment, share .
Has anyone else blown the dust off their flip flops yet or am I perhaps being a little too optimistic? Yesterday I actually left the house without 50 layers, a scarf, wooly hat and a rain coat… I know, wow! Winter has seriously outstayed its welcome and now we’re cooing over the slightly longer days and those less chilly winds outside. It’s great that actual sunshine is now within .
Sound ridiculous to say considering the country is knee deep in snow right now but today is actually ‘supposed’ to be the first day of spring. Yep… we made that face too. Anyway, with the start of Spring and knowing the Easter Bunny will soon be on his way we thought we’d give you a few handy hints and tips to clean and keep your jewellery looking tip top .
How many times do you scroll through your Instagram and see the most gorgeous images of inside peoples homes? Homes that are flooded with light, bang on trend and not a single dying orchid in sight. We are extremely lucky to have customers who send us images of their new NAJB piece taking pride of place and quite frankly we’ve become a little obsessed. We’ve spent goodness knows how .
Sometimes they drive us up the wall but sometimes you stop and wonder how you actually live without them. Mothers, Grandmothers, Mother figures and even Dads who do the job of both parents really do deserve all our love on Mothers Day to give back and say ‘Thank you for every thing you do, and everything you’ve ever done’. My mum, Lesley has been a rock at NAJB through .
So far we’ve had a really lovely start to 2018. We’ve all had a good chance to relax over Christmas and New Year and get back into it with fresh minds and happy vibes. November and December is literally GO! GO! GO! for our little team and it’s all about getting those items out across the world as soon as possible. Our teeny tiny team of 5 gals sanded .
Nothing says Thoughtful Gifting like a personalised product- it screams “Hey, I actually put a lot of thought into this and didn’t just follow the rest of the sheep towards the supermarket flower stand…” Guys (or even girls, of course) welcome to Not A Jewellery Box! We have been busy in the studio designing a lovers range of our classic Mini Dishes this year and they’re guaranteed to be .
I thought I would start the Blog for 2018 with a little bit about me… Living that Devon life I’m all about keeping myself grounded with the kids and their general school day-to-day routines, taking Coco out for walks along our beautiful English Riviera, and cracking on growing and developing Not A Jewellery Box. Being a single Mama with my own business to run and a lot to do .
November 2017 marks our 8th birthday and therefore we thought we’d share the amazing story of how Not A Jewellery Box came to be all those years ago. Starting with initial problem, Owner Emma decided that if she couldn’t source it- she’d make it! An idea which started off as a stall at a craft fair on her own to becoming a full time business ran from her home .
