I’m not sure if you are all familiar with Citymob, the South African sales website with the best product selection around. Well you could read the blurb down below which explains their basic concept, or you could just mosey on over to their website and have a look for yourself.

From the rainy city of Dublin to the sunnier shores of Cape Town, Handmade by me is moving! And its all happening on the 4th of July! So from then onwards, everything will be designed and made in South Africa. Unfortunately due to the nature of alot of current stockists being “made in ireland” I will sadly have to stop supplying them, but I am delighted to say there will still be a few up and running. I am very sad of course to leave Ireland, it has been my home for 6 lovely years and it will always be where Handmade by me began. But one door closes and another opens and hopefully Handmade by me will find a happy and successful new home in Cape Town. I have alot of plans up my sleeve about developing new products and designs and can’t wait to get started! And I can’t wait to be working on this fulltime! Unfortunately most of these require me actually being In Cape Town so things will be a bit quiet here for the next month or two and then I hope to bombard with you with all things fabulous! So for anyone who hasn’t subscribed to my blog as of yet, you can still do so (type your email address into the “subscribe” block at the top right hand side of my blog) and you will be able to keep up to date with the move itself and new and exciting information and projects. You can also keep up to date via Handmade by me’s facebook page.
Irish supporters and customers I will be giving you all a 10% discount on any purchases of current stock. And for any cushion covers purchased I will throw in a free cushion filler! I can still make to order at normal prices for the next 2 weeks but after that I will have to do that from the other side and then post your item/s to you. I have lots of cushion covers, tea towels and napkins sets so first come first serve. If you want to send me a mail, I can let you know what designs are available and reserve them for you.
And of course no matter where you are in the world, you will always be able to get your hands of any of my products either through new or exisiting online shops and of course my very own Etsy store. My special bespoke services will always be up and running so if you still want to create something special or unique either for yourself or as a gift for someone else please get in touch!
