Maker Profile: Katie Abey
Whilst we're closed, we want to do all we can to support the amazing community of makers and small businesses who we are lucky enough to work with, we will be sharing work on our social media and blogs, introducing you to some of the makers we stock.
Today we get to shout about Katie Abey, a creator of "unusual, colourful and humorous illustrative gifts inspired by weird and wonderful things."

Katie Abey makes the most wonderful happy, positive and uplifting products which are just what we need during these scary times! Her pun packed cards, pins, totes, socks and mugs are among the most loved items in the store. Most of the staff have a pair of Sweary Socks!
"I am an illustrator, Ravenclaw, sensitive soul and mother to Violet (the human) and Frank (the cat)." - Katie Abey
"Our products are actually magic. For example the Pad of Productivity will use its powers to make you more productive and the Cup of Courage will definitely make you more brave. Whether its a self care reminder you need, or a belly laugh that you require there will be something in our shop that fits your needs." - Katie Abey
