About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

notonthehighstreet has just accepted me to be part of their 'ting.

This seems like good news, I think there could be a financial catch I'm going to read all about it.

hmmmm. On closer inspection, I'm not sure it's worth it. There's a big initial outlay, I think I may be better off using that cash for a print run or a trade fair where I could sell in much more volume.
I may invest towards xmas as it would be a good way to sell my xmas multi packs.

hello, just thought id throw in my opinion.
i manage a not on the high street shop for the place i work in, and your right, its a big outlay of cash that could be so better spent, we go weeks and weeks without any orders and then suddenly get lots over a few days, christmas is busy-ish but i dont think its really worth it when you can sell for far cheaper on etsy, and other such places..
your work makes me smile lots by the way.
