These lovely folk are my mates, but even if they weren’t, I would still buy their wares.
First we have Lover and Dreamer, which sells candles and resin-ware. Natasha’s candles are made from soy, and gorgeous in both aroma and colour. Her resin products are exquisite; much experimentation, love and time has gone into her products!
Next we have Jan Wallace pottery. I met this dear lady when she donated three ceramic birds to sit atop a cake for my friend’s wake, and have loved her ever since. She has many pieces for sale in her Etsy shop, including these beauties.
Last but certainly not least, we have Science Sayz. The incomparable David Everett started this business, spurred on by modern medicine saving his son’s life in the most extraordinary manner (read about it here). A passionate advocate of science, he wants to spread the word about evidence-based medicine.
$1.00 from each shirt sold will go toward scientific research. These are but a few businesses that are run by splendid people, making a difference in this world. Check them out!
