Hi everyone, I’m the new girl in the shop.
*waves at laptop irl*
So Rachael suggested that I should introduce myself and help you guys get to know me a bit better by sharing a few of my things at HZ headquarters.
Without a doubt the first thing that I thought of when creating this list was the Bunny Tofu Iron On Patch by Bels Art World. As a vegan I couldn’t help but swoon. I’m seriously considering getting my hands on a denim jacket just so I can justify bringing this little critter everywhere with me. Or maybe I can also iron it onto a canvas bag?
The next item involves a collaboration between two longtime faves: Stay Home Club and illustrator Julia Bereciartu. Julia’s relatable illustrations feel perfectly at home in this comfy and soft loose T-shirt. The Another Night in T-shirt is perfect for drinking in, frankly it’s compulsory. Although I must admit, I prefer the company of dogs to cats, and beer to wine.
Next up on my list is this amazing swimmer necklace by Lou Taylor. It’s a statement necklace that would dress up any wardrobe choice but I imagine it going particularly well with a navy dress and orange nail polish. The ironic thing is I cannot swim!
The final thing(s?) on my hit list are these wonderful seasonal fruit and veg UK postcards by Asking For Trouble. These postcards would never be allowed to fall off the fridge in my flat. Someone needs to post me these, I mean just look at those adorable radishes! Looking might I say, simply ‘radishing’ …
So apart from loving bad jokes, let me tell you more about myself. When I’m not in the shop drooling over everything, I’m an artist who works with moving image and collaborates with other artists and friends on creative workshops and projects. You can see a bit of what I do on my website, check it out here.
I have been a long time customer of Hannah Zaraki, since I first arrived in Edinburgh as a student. It’s a joy to wrap up all the lovely pieces for customers to take home and I hope to wrap something up for you very soon!
