When looking for new stock for the website I always have the same brief in my head. Must be different, must be offbeat, must be eye catching….must be unique. So when I first encountered The Bright Side I was immediately intrigued! I saw an array of colours and large texts, with funny looking sayings and slogans. I had to have a closer look. The Bright Side uses old block printing in vibrant metallic fonts on all their gifts and printmaker Rachel Bright shares her most quirky and original thoughts with you on every piece. I stood there for way over an hour reading through them all, laughing out loud! The thing with The Bright Side is that there is a gift for everyone and for all occasions. They have gifts for sons, daughters, dads and grandparent’s they’ve even got pets covered in the collection. With Mothers Day just around the corner I thought I would share some of their key Mothers Day pieces with you….
