I love to shop local. It’s great to support independent shops and businesses and in turn, they support smaller designers and makers. Independent stores often have more exciting and unique products and usually you find the customer service is much better too.
StreetHub is a new way to shop locally. They work with the coolest independent stores and you can use it to find new and exciting products, which are all local to you. They have a website and an app, which you can use to browse by category, store or discover something new from the ‘Picks of the Week’ area, which is always a really well curated selection. You can buy via their website or app, and it couldn’t be easier to click and collect or arrange delivery to your door (with a 90 minute time slot!)
There are some great stores involved in StreetHub; Milk, Blackbird, Lomography, Future & Found to name a few. I was kindly given the opportunity to try StreetHub out for myself and I spent AGEESSSSS on the app trying to choose, but it was so hard to decide, as there are so many great items. For instance, I fell in love with this for the kitchen, but I also thought this would be lovely for the morning. This perfume would make me happy every day and these shoes are a dream. Tough choices!
Then, I spied something I have been swooning after for a few years now, a Zoe & Morgan Anchor down ring. I have the matching Forget me Knot ring already, but this anchor is just too special. I swiftly placed my order and arranged delivery for within a guaranteed 90 minute time slot. The ring arrived with a lovely note and packed up with tissue paper in a Zoe & Morgan carrier bag. It really couldn’t have been any easier and StreetHub have such a great selection of products, it’s so easy to shop because everything is really nice and well picked. Personally, I loved the accessories, jewellery, homewears, gifts and art on StreetHub, but there are many more categories to choose from and new product is constantly being uploaded onto the site and app too.
StreetHub is a super easy and fun way to shop locally. Especially if you need to buy a birthday or Christmas gift within a few hours and you can’t leave the office. Also, if you are exploring a new area of town, you can use the app to show you where the cool independent stores are located. Download the app or visit the website soon!
