Little Beach Boutique is ‘Shop of the Month’ in Coast Magazine!

Coast magazine press

It was a lovely surprise on a Monday morning to get an email from a customer saying she had seen us listed as ‘Shop of the Month’ in Coast magazine for their August issue! Listing our glass coasters and felted seagulls, they mention our ‘beachy beginnings’ on Brighton seafront, and make reference to our focus on emerging artists and makers and giving ‘people a platform for their work’.  It is wonderful to see some of our latest images of the shop as well, highlighting our summer collections.  We are chuffed to bits! The rest of the magazine has a focus on...

It is nearly the end of a busy month in beautiful Brighton and we thought it was a good time to start celebrating the designers and makers who produce the ranges that keep people coming back to our little shop time after time. Our bestselling range in June has been this range of hilarious animal prints by Tipperley Hill.  We started selling their quirky collection at the end of last summer, after Roz was passing the shop on a day trip to Brighton last year.  Loving the look of Little Beach Boutique, Roz contacted us via Instagram saying we were the perfect place...

I am delighted to see Little Beach Boutique featured in Psychologies Magazine this Spring! In a feature called 'My Life, My Way', I talk about changing career from being a support worker to becoming a self-employed shopkeeper and how I found glass fusion along the way.   The focus of the piece is about becoming self-employed and what lessons I learnt along the way.  The main challenge was becoming my own boss and learning to let myself make mistakes.  Opening the shop came with an enormous learning curve, I feel like I made it up as I went along, giving myself a hard time...

For the love of animals

We love it when deliveries arrive here at LBB, especially when they are from Tipperley Hill, an artist duo who create animal prints featuring sweet, funny, rude and often outrageous quotes.  Based in London and Leicester, Tipperley Hill are made up of Abi, who beautifully illustrates animals of every creed from frogs to French bulldogs, and Roz, who paints colourful shirts on them and finishes each one with an expression written in calligraphy.  We spend a fun few hours coming up with quotes to go with each animal, or take inspiration from Aby and Roz’s previous pictures. There is a...
