Ely is once again welcoming another independent brand to its wonderful community of small businesses.
The Jolly Bobbin will be opening its doors on Chequer lane on the 25th August. Owners, Amy and Mike Jolly of Ely have been operating as The Jolly Bobbin since 2015 when Amy began making and selling baby booties and hair-bows online. This grew into making a whole range of custom clothing, ranging from leggings to dungarees and sweatshirt tops. After becoming parents and getting fed up of the lack of truly gender-free, fun and colourful kids clothes on the high street, Amy decided this would be her inspiration.
After teaching paramedic husband (Mike) to sew, The Jolly Bobbin has been a busy little enterprise. With ever-growing online interest and two busy summers of festival trading, they decided to take the leap into a bricks and mortar shop in the centre of Ely.
The shop will be a miniature emporium of ethical, fun and practical child and parent related goodies. Alongside their organic gender-free clothing range (made on site), they have collaborated with other wonderful independent brands to bring a wide variety of products, including:- organic leather baby shoes, baby carriers/ring slings (following T.I.C.K.S rule), cloth sanitary products, hybrid cloth nappies, Baltic amber necklaces, teething/distraction necklaces and hand held pieces, beautiful vintage and chakra jewellery, reusable straws and kitchen roll, rainbow glass decorations, KindHuman t-shirts, beautifully upcycled campervan furniture, educational eco toys/puzzles/games and some lovely hand puppets from The Puppet Company. The Jolly Bobbin will also be stocking some goodies made by Rex London such as colourful lunch bags, mini backpacks, cushions and many more wonderfully useful items.
Opening day looks to be a great one with cake, prosecco and discount codes being given away during the morning.
