Shiny new stuff and where to buy it!

It hit me the other day.... I have been sneaking new stuff in to the shop for the past couple of months and I'm not entirely convinced I've been telling everyone about it properly (other than Instagram posts!) So I thought I'd take 5 to pop all the shiny newness into one blog post for you and also let you know about where you can buy them... online and IRL.

So first up, a mini showcase of all things new in the Hello Sunshine shop, including limited edition festive treats and some brand new products! YAY! 


A pin inspired by my Grandparents very own Happy Camper and my memories of mini trips in it when we were little. Oh the joy to be able to feed the ducks in Attenborough Nature Reserve and then shelter from the rain and have a cup of tea while we watched them play (and while my sister hid from the swans!) 


"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away"

A song and phrase so close to my heart and now a gorgeous pin that I'm incredibly happy to be able to share with you all - I just hope you love it as much as I do!


Eeep! The little Sunshine kitty crew just got bigger... no wait... smaller with the arrival of these super cute, teeny-tiny and very shiny enamel studs! Available as Little Black Cats, Little White Cats, Brown Tabby Cats and Shiny Silver Cats.


These super shiny, mega sparkly kitty cats are here to help jazz up a dull day and make sure you're party ready ANY TIME! Only one batch has been made of these sparkly tinkers making them LIMITED EDITION and only available in Hello Sunshine shops or at events this season.


The PURRFECT accessory for any shirt, these new gold enamel cufflinks will make sure you look the business. You can pick from a little pair of Black Cats, pair of Brown Tabby Cats or even mix and match with one of each.


This little set of iron on patches includes a cheeky bottle of gin with a slice of lemon AND lime, meaning you can mix it up and enjoy a gin 'n ' juice ANY time!


CHIN CHIN GIN LOVERS! The popular Sunshine gin design has been turned into a snazzy pair of silver enamel cufflinks, ready to don the shirt of any gin lover out there.


All the fun of a festive woolly jumper without the itching and outfit clashes! Add a Christmas Jumper of a different kind to your winter wardrobe this year with cute little brooches, earrings, necklaces & pins.


Not only can you grab a little Merry Christmas decoration you can PIMP YOUR VERY OWN CHRISTMAS JUMPER! Add your name (or a loved ones name) to this snazzy Christmas Jumper to create the perfect personalised Christmas treat! The best way to embrace the festive woolly trend without the itching and awkward wardrobe clashes.


Everybody sing it now... "CHRISTMAS TIME, Mistletoe and wine!" One of the world's cheesiest Christmas tunes AND a cute little pin duo to wear all season - now that's what I call festive! Pick up the festive pair for a limited time only this Winter and make everyone hum, sing and possibly dance when they see you sporting them.


"I just like to smile, smiling's my favourite!" Not only one of my favourite films but a quote that couldn't be more relevant to me and the Hello Sunshine brand. Everything here is done with the intent of bringing a smile to your face and I'm hoping the new version of this pin does just the trick again!


It's a festive double whammy! Save some pennies and bag yourself a sparkly Christmas edition camper van patch AND pin. Also available individually and the glitter van pin is SO SHINY!

Phew! So I think that's all the newness in the shop, I hope it's a nice little round up to look through and you spy some treats for your Christmas list - whether it's for you or your loved ones. You can find everything via the little links below each snap or pop to the NEW CHRISTMAS section in the Sunshine shop. 

You'll also find everything hanging out in the Sunshine Etsy shop too so you can browse and fill your basket with treats from lots of different lovely Etsy shops and check out in one go! Such a simple way to shop all your fave independents this festive season!

If you're excited about getting out and about in to the shop this year you can also find Hello Sunshine goodies in lots of different independent shops and galleries so take a peek at the STOCKIST section on the website too. Another brilliant way to immerse yourself in lots of gorgeous handmade products and treats from a mix of indies and creatives is to visit some of the upcoming Christmas fairs and Markets! There are SO MANY happening around the UK and it's one of my favourite ways to sell Sunshine and meet/catch up with lots of my fave designer-makers.

You'll find me behind a stall of Sunshine at the following events and I CAN'T BLOODY WAIT so please do come and say hello if you're in the area!

And don't forgot, THIS WEEKEND you'll find me back at the Handmade Nottingham Winter Market doing Live Sunshine Portraits from 11-5pm. YAY! 

Ooft! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, huh?
