Christmas 2013 Look Book

Welcome to Christmas with Elsie & Fleur Elsie & Fleur is a new online boutique for food, garden, home and lifestyle products that have been created with love by artisan crafters and makers based in the Westcountry. It was born out of a desire for people to be able to buy items that are often unique but don’t carry a hefty price tag. All the products are being sold to support micro businesses, run by kitchen table entrepreneurs and mumpreneurs - the economic life blood of Great Britain. Our aim is to offer people the chance to buy unusual, handmade, yet affordable, items from the comfort of their own homes. We have a price ceiling on products of no more than £40 per item. The website launched earlier this year (2013). Our Christmas stock is now available and we’ll be looking at new ranges each season. We’re offering a ‘happiness guarantee’ to customers and suppliers alike so relationships are mutually beneficial and enjoyable to all. There will be a no quibble returns policy for customers, for example. Unlike similar websites for British-made artisan products, we will handle all customer liaison and order fulfilment in-house.

Our suppliers include artisan food producers, card makers, illustrators, sewing geniuses, workers with felt, crafters who make things from driftwood, glass workers and a potter. As Britain has lost much of its home manufacturing industry, we appreciate our makers may source some of the components they use for their products in other countries. All the items stocked on our website are designed and put together by hand or have been designed and printed in this country. We are committed to supporting Westcountry crafters. You can find us by visiting: Thank you for taking the time to look through our Christmas 2013 Look Book.
