Yep, you heard that right, FICH will be coming to NOTHS soon! I am so excited about this opportunity, hopefully this blog post will make you as excited as I am if you’re not already buzzing!
So, what is Not On The High Street?
NOTHS is a curated online marketplace whose primary focus is on personalised, thoughtful, unique gifts. I particularly love the photography of the high-quality products on the site. It is very succinct and clean, making it easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. I couldn’t believe it when they got in touch, I cannot wait to get my storefront up and running!
What can you expect from FICH?
Hand-thrown pieces are very personal because each piece is made by hand. This is evident when a piece is finished, there are usually maker’s marks on the piece or when you put your finger in the inside curve of a pot or by holding a mug, it comfortably fits your hand because it’s come from mine. There are always more ways to make a gift more personalised and this is the aspect of my business I have been wanting to develop for a while.
I’m imagining fun sayings, quotes or a couple of words that can be generalised like a plant pot that says “Mad About The Plants” or just a simple “I Love You” on a mug. There will also be the option to have your name on a piece, I can imagine this is especially appealing to those of you who have an alternative spelt name, looks funky but you cannot find your name, spelt the way you spell it, anywhere! This has obviously come from the struggle to find “Fiona” on personalised bookmarks at the garden centre when I was a kid.
My one goal for selling with NOTHS, will be to create a unique gift for you to give the one you love that’ll make them smile. Pretty simple really.
How can you help me?
I want to make my pieces FOR YOU, therefore if there are any words or sayings you’d love to see, then please leave a comment below and I will do my best to make these and put them in my shop!
I am hoping to open my shop at the mid-end of February and it will be filled with gifts for Mother’s Day so you can find the perfect gift for your mum! Please follow me on Instagram if you’d like to know when we are officially open for business at @FICHceramics or alternatively you can sign up to my newsletter, you can do this by popping over to my website at www.FICHceramics.co.uk.
Please be aware that to start with I will only be selling within the United Kingdom, but I will be looking to sell internationally eventually.
