62 - Now at Workshop

Saturday, November 15, 2014

I have a new stockist that I am excited to share news of... I'm now stocked at WORKSHOP in Brighton. These guys have a truly wonderful aesthetic and seek to share their passion for items created with a simple approach to design and functionality. They believe in the little guys like me and have a beautifully curated store filled with well designed and crafted items.

You can take a look online at the edit of their store here or head on over to 13A Prince Albert Street, Brighton (my goods are available in-store only at the moment).

61 - Best Made Co

Sunday, November 02, 2014

This years extended summer weather seems to have brought with it a huge wanderlust for me. I'm itching to get out under canvas, learn some new skills, start fires from scratch with fire steels (I tried the friction/stick thing and am surprised we as a race are still here - how do I make it work?) and figure out survival skills that mean I can live outdoors without running to the car or rucksack every five minutes for forgotten this's or that's to get by with.

At the very first Good Life Experience I learnt of a brand that will feed my every desire for camp related articles - Best Made Co. The only draw back, they are NYC based (but luckily being stocked in store at Pedlars). In their own words "Best Made Company® is dedicated to equipping customers with quality tools and dependable information that they can use and pass down for generations. We seek to empower people to get outside, use their hands and in doing so embark on a life of fulfilling projects and lasting experiences".

They create just about everything that's on my mind at the moment. With autumn/winter edging its way in I am secretly hoping that a hand axe/hatchet will be under the Christmas tree this year for chopping the pain-in-the-behind bits of wood that are too big to fit in the burner (and generally feeling bad-ass about owning an axe) and feeling the need for a cosy blanket or two to layer up on the bed that remind me of nights spent under canvas.

All items below available from www.bestmadeco.com. I kick myself for not buying their "Maps" notebook when I had the chance with true thing of beauty that it is and have never felt particularly lusty over a first aid kit before, until now. Best Made Co really do live up to their name it seems.

Just to be clear - I like to share brands that I think are particularly spectacular and may be of value to you. This post is not sponsored or paid for in any way shape or form.
