Our store is focused onr innovative gifts, gadgets and home and lifestyle products. Based in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, we are passionate about supporting British designers and promoting the creativity inspired by living here.
I launched Buy-From Brightcore in October, joining my dad and working from his office at home, so I could have more time with my daughter, Georgia. It has been a real privilege to learn from my dad and to meet all the designers and business people who have joined me and supported me so far.
Our objectives in Buy-From Brightcore are two-fold: On one hand we are seeking to source gifts that are unique and offer something a little bit special for the consumer. On the other we are creating a marketplace for Shropshire designers to sell throughout the UK. Both of these areas are rapidly expanding and make running the shop really exciting!
Our best sellers across Buy-From Brightcore are our personalised products, created for us by artists Meg Hawkins, Kind Arted and Alfie Moon. I am thrilled to be selling some of these products on The Early Years Boutique: you can shop for tote bags, unique artist prints for children and fingerprint illustrations for christenings, birthdays and weddings.
The 100% tote bags are made to order by hand and feature the wonderful designs of Alfie Moon: Slouchy the Penguin, Ollie the Owl, Pete the Panda and my personal favourite, the Woodland Fox. The Woodland Fox also comes with a free badge, which has proved pretty popular!
The personalised artist illustrations are unique, as they have been created by artist, Meg Hawkins, for Buy-From Brightcore. Meg’s work is playful and lovingly crafted: here you can choose from a Girls’ World or a Boys’ World print and have it personalised with a name or phrase. I have one framed in my daughter’s bedroom and she loves it!
We have been thrilled with the response to Meg Hawkins’ fingerprint illustrations as well, which are perfect for christenings, birthdays or weddings. Each illustration is a digital print of an original illustration and comes mounted. Included in the pack are an inkpad, pen and instruction card. This is a really unique and fun gift, in which you can immortalise those who have attended your special occasion with their fingerprints.
