Do you ever want to go back in time a little bit and tell yourself about something that's going to happen, just so that your past self can be like "Get out of town!"
This is totally how we feel about our latest stockist, the ever brilliant Eclectic Eccentricity.
We've been huge fans of the 'jewellery with stories to tell' brand ever since their launch in 2004. Their story is pretty similar to that of ours - humble, hobby craft beginnings from the living room coffee table into an empire beyond the wildest dreams of the (seriously lovely) creator, Lucy. Now a team of a dozen-strong tea-drinking magpies, Eclectic Eccentricity is run from their head office in Norwich. We've totally soaked up the brands' journey over the years; from becoming regulars on the celebrity circuit to retaining their identity in the arguably saturated world of costume jewellery. My favourite thing about their brand is the cute as a button product names - in fact, when I was thinking of how to name products way back in the depths of 2010, whilst the fashion was to give products irrelevant girls' names, Eclectic Eccentricity's bon mot, tongue in cheek product titles certainly influenced how we decided to name some of the names of our earlier pieces.
Which is why it's pretty apt that they've chosen to stock a range of our Whole Lotta Rosie crowns. Who else was brought up on a musical diet of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and AC/DC? If it was just me, our Whole Lotta Rosie crowns come from an AC/DC track of the same title. Our Purple Haze bobby pins? That's courtesy of Jimi. And our Purple Rain butterfly crown? Well, that's one my Pops wouldn't approve of, but the ultimate karaoke song by Prince.
A selection of our Whole Lotta Rosie and Not a Lotta Rosie crowns are available to buy at Eclectic Eccentricity now.
