Hello peas, today I want to talk about shopping. As a vintage lover, when I’m shopping I look for the quirky, the different, the decadent – and my means are often thrift shopping, charity shops, or independent sellers. Basically, I like to avoid the high street where I can, so when I come across somewhere new to shop that’s a little bit different, I jump at the chance to browse and find that new piece and that’s exactly what happened when I learned of BeDesigner.
This way of shopping is not only a great way to come across something unique, but it’s also a wonderful way to support the businesses that need it most. Whatever country you are in, I can almost guarantee that the small businesses around you have been impacted in some way by the pandemic. It can be hard to support yourself as one small entity when you are up against so many large corporations.
BeDesigner is a great place to go when you are searching for that something special, it hosts a multitude of independent brands, so you know that you can support small sellers from the comfort of your own home – but also, because it hosts so many brands you have the convenience of a department store, win win! Imagine how great it feels to be able to order a whole Christmas new outfit from somewhere, while supporting a bunch of small businesses in the process.
I was extremely lucky to receive a package from BeDesigner on my birthday which included a delicious Mojito smelling body scrub, and some lovely sunglasses (you can even change the arms! Hello, matching outfits). Upon receiving my package, I knew the love and support that goes into the business and sales at BeDesigner – you wouldn’t get a hand written note and cute stickers from a high street delivery I bet! The scrub was gorgeous to use, and I’d love to try the fairyfloss martini next! We all love a martini here at A Decadent Pea.
When speaking to people in the past, I understood that they found it difficult to know where to shop with independent sellers as there were so many, and also, how were they to know that a business was reputable? On BeDesigner, every brand has a short biography about their business – and they even have a handmade section, so you really know that you are getting a one off special piece (I love the card holders!)
It’s not only for women, there is a section for men too, so you can find something special for that man in your life – while making a small business owner somewhere to do a happy dance – what’s not to love?
Anyway, I will let you get back to your Christmas shopping.
Until next time,
A Decadent Pea x
