As we all know looking after the environment has become not just the right thing to do but the only thing thats going to save this planet!! Just taking one step at a time makes a difference and one step a day make a huge difference – working together is the way to go.

When I set up The Hare’s Handbag I made a conscious decision to try and be environmental conscious and make steps to reduce as much waste as possible, that in mind my first choice of packaging is always to reuse what comes to me in deliveries, including boxes and packaging.
Hey it may not be pretty but as long as its safe and fit for purpose out it goes.
Packaging I buy is cardboard boxes, shredded paper and for the breakables I use green eco friendly bubbly wrap…small steps in the right direction. Nowhere near enough but the more I do the more I learn and thats always a good thing right?

As I add more stock I am looking for the eco friendly options as much as I can

won’t you join us?

Busy little bees…

I’m going to be attending some trade/craft fairs so have started preparations.
Today’s efforts are a unique The Hare’s Handbag keyrings made with Tibetan silver charms….hope you like!!

Time to get a beat on

Always helps when you play some music whilst you work..at the moment I’m playing meatloaf but had new age music on earlier. As long as it makes you feel good and get on its all a good thing!!
Today I’ve been finishing off some hand made fridge magnets that I’ve made for an online charity auction. Think some may make their way on here too – they’re all sparkly and pretty..I don’t often find the time to craft but I do find it relaxing after a stressful few weeks 🙂
On a good note I’ve received a message from Hare telling me of some beautiful new items sourced and coming soon..how exciting xxx

Beautiful things!!

We all love beautiful things don’t we..especially as a suprise gift in the post!!
My lovely friend Kerrie makes lots and lots of items which you can look at on her Facebook page
and last week sent me a beautiful recipe book which I think is too pretty to use…but I will 🙂
Kerrie makes lots of different things and you want them all…but especially her bespoke card craft. Pop along to her page and have a look for yourself.

In the meantime I will keep admiring my book and trying to talk Kerrie into making some items for THH 😀

Well I’m jetting off on Saturday to sunnier climes!! When I say jetting I actually mean being driven and when I say sunnier climes I mean Wales…but I have a hot tub 🙂
It does mean that any orders between the 12 August 17 until the 19 August 17 will not be actioned until the 21st August..
If you are holidaying too Enjoy and if you are at home with the kiddies take deep breaths – we are half way through xxx

Welcome to The Hare’s Handbag!

A huge welcome and a big thank you for visiting us.

Here at THH we try and source our products ethically and the Hare is really good at finding interesting and unique items from Asia and Europe. I try and find the items that are handmade in the UK or provide the means to make yourself. Please let me know what you think and I’m always open to ideas to try.

Speak soon
