Come and have a cuppa with the Cafe of Curiosities!
Here at Little Beach Boutique, we love to work with independent designers and makers, and our collections feature many of the fabulous creatives who are based right here in Brighton. We are always researching craft fairs, open houses, galleries and trade shows for something different to offer our customers, as well as keeping at look out for emerging talent who might not have an outlet yet.
We get especially excited when someone approaches us, so imagine our delight when we were contacted by Brighton's own Cafe of Curiosities, who wanted to tell us about their brand new range of drinkware, totes and pins dedicated to one thing - feeling good!
Both busy working mums, Bethanie and Lucy, aka Cafe of Curiosities, describe their concept as a "fun and uplifting place that houses the things you love" and they have designed a range of products to inspire and uplift you, make you chortle as well as bring a little magic into your day.
Their ranges are called "Menus", and they have most recently served up a fabulous range of mugs which we couldn't wait to have in the shop. There is something for everyone in the range, and here are some of our favourites -
"That sounds like a dreadful idea, what time do we start?"
This mug calls to mind that friend who (no matter how old we get) I always seem to get in trouble with, and with who I find myself having some misguided adventure that keeps me laughing for days! It makes me smile over my morning cuppa recalling things we have done, even if I don't see her everyday.
I love this mug because there shouldn't have to be a premise - just "boss" - it is for the person without who everything would fall apart...
"Be a Flamingo in a flock of pigeons"
This mug reminds you to be yourself, be bold, stand out from the crowd, (even when you might feel like staying in and having another cuppa).
"I'm so happy I could shit rainbows"
This mug made me laugh out loud when I saw it! Even if you're not feeling particularly perky, there is a chance that sipping a brew out of this cup will improve your mood.
Enough said! We all know those mornings, sometimes they stretch into days! We just want to hide behind our comforting cuppa and let the words speak for us...
All these mugs are available in store or online now, in our New Collections section.
