I have chosen a few select items - all with a dotty or spotty theme - to sell alongside my own designs. I know you'll love all the goodies you'll find in The Polka Dot Spot Shop, because they are all the things that I love and that I have in my home! What you'll find in my shop you wont find everywhere else - and I've selected items made with skill, dedication and love by crafts people in the UK.

A5 in size, and with your choice of name hanging from the washing line, these cards make a great individual and personalised card that will be cherished long after a birthday or christening has passed. Available exclusively through our Not on the High Street Store Front.

Naturally, spotty bunting is my favourite! Many years ago I bought a string of red & white spotty bunting and have used it, inside and out ever since. Recently I was looking for some more spotty bunting, but try as I might, I couldn't find any anywhere! The solution? I commissioned local craftswoman Deborah Sparks to hand make a range of spotty fabric bunting, exclusively for dots and spots.
The bunting comes in 3 great colours: red, blue and pink, as well as a mixed string with those three colours along with green. Already proving to be a big hit, the mixed string has sold out (don't worry - new stock arriving soon!)
You don't have to wait until summer to fly the bunting flags - nothing says 'party' like bunting so use it to quickly turn any room into a party room, or why not hang a string of bunting in your bedroom for an instant 'shabby chic' feel?

First to arrive were these great cards from 'Cowboys and Custard' -very appropriate given my love of Twitter! I love the vintage and nostalgic feel with the Cowboys and Custard range - do visit the shop, you'll be sure to find a unique and original gift or card.
A couple of days later I received a copy of Poppy Treffrey's new book courtesy of Snapdragon Jane at the Snapdragon Garden. Jane uses textiles and embroidery to create the most beautiful and fun notebooks, badges, handbag mirrors and more. Do pop over to the Snapdragon Garden - you'll enjoy the tour!
(and as they say good things come in threes, I'm looking forward to winning the lottery this weekend!)
