Some of you may already know me, but if you don’t, I’m Beth the founder of Raven Gifts and Interiors.
I started my handmade journey from making my own products that are still sold today online and in various stores across the UK, including here.
I fell in love with sewing again after my sister’s wedding had me crafting and making all her Pinterest desires, including her wedding outfit. Years before I had completed a degree in fashion design and technology at Norwich University of the Arts. The pressure of the fashion industry crippled me at the first hurdle, causing me to fall into a carer of care.
From sewing for friends and family and building a social media platform, I soon found myself with a stall set up in the local pub car park. I did not enjoy that night, but was one of the most character building events I ever have done to date! I often tell the story of this night to many people building their new businesses.
After selling across various platforms and a range of events from Matlock Christmas Markets and Donnington Hall, I knew I wanted my own store full of all the quality goods I could find.
This is how we meet!
A pop-up store above Queenies Tea Room had me planning the future of handmade shopping across Derbyshire, and even across the globe!
Please browse my store of all the goods I have selected, email me your feedback or why not treat yourself!
