WowThankYou: New e-commerce website promoting UK handmade crafts is launched
Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK March 5, 2010 WowThankYou.co.uk is launched today, promoting the talents of artisans from all over the UK. With over 1000 products currently on offer, many of which are one-off items, WowThankYou encourages the general public to look beyond the shopping centres and buy unique, home-grown, gifts instead. Promoting the work of 230 small, often home-based, businesses WowThankYou is providing an online outlet for selected artisans who usually sell only through regional craft fairs.
WowThankYou has been set up by friends Tracey Kifford and Georgena Bowdidge who, having suspended their careers to look after young children, conceived the business concept after failing to find different quality gifts online.
In this current climate, we should all be encouraged to Buy British. Why import mass-produced goods when we have UK-based talent who put love and care into every item they make?, according to Tracey and Georgena, who vow to support these small businesses and the many more who are applying daily to join the WowThankYou website community.
Many items utilise vintage materials and upcycling is actively encouraged and promoted everything from reclaimed wood and recycled silver to designer keepsakes from cherished fabrics. Often offering personalised and bespoke options, WowThankYou lists gifts ranging from £1.50 to £800.00. Listing gifts for the home and garden, friends and family, as well as your pets, there is something for everyone.
www.wowthankyou.co.uk is launched on Friday 5 March 2010. On behalf of WowThankYou, and the businesses we promote, your support is appreciated.
