We're sad to say that currently we are not taking any orders from the EU.

How it all started...

Hey friend.

Welcome to our first ever blog post!

So you may have had a read about us already, but perhaps you're looking for a deeper dive into the inner workings of YBFH. Well, first things first, the picture at the top, yeah? This is where it all started...

Your Best Friend’s House is a safe, yet exciting space, to find those super cute and unique pieces you want to rave about and gift to your besties, or yourself - we love the gift of self-love!

We’re a community supporting up and coming creatives and independent brands who have just started selling their work. We aim to give them a platform to shout about their work and get their products into the hands of their beautiful new owners. 

You may be thinking “who’s behind all this?”

Well, we can confirm, it’s this gal, Sally. She’s a one woman show at the moment, so please bear with her while we get things up and running.

Let’s hear a bit more from Sally.

“Hey, friends! I’m Sally, founder of Your Best Friend’s House. And I’m SOOO excited to be here. I love dogs, pigeons, sewing, dressing loud and feelin’ proud! (yes, you read that right, I said pigeons. Who doesn’t love a weirdo?!) 

My partner and I currently live in Brighton, UK and I'm writing this from our home office - which we've painted a cloud ceiling on to ☁️ It's genuinely the happiest room I've ever sat in. 

So maybe you’re wondering why on earth I started this wonderful community?Well, to (try) and cut a long story short, I was once a small business owner like many of those in our community. 

It’s always been a dream of mine to own a business – especially open a physical store. One day I’ll hopefully be changing this bio to ‘come to see me at the shop’! Fingers crossed. 

I’m a creative soul myself, but in a classic Sagittarius manner, I love to jump from thing to thing. One day I’ll be painting pots, then making clothes, then designing prints. Don’t get me wrong, I love each and every one of these things, but I couldn’t stop thinking about selling them, and it made me fall out of love with creating. I seriously bow down to all of those creatives doing it day in day out. YOU GO, FRIENDS! 

I am a marketer at heart, so I thought how can I help others get to where they want to be. Then a few month’s later a beautiful business baby was born: Your Best Friend’s House — isn’t she cute?! 👼

I can’t wait to help out many small business owners by giving them a platform to shout about their products and get my marketing/advertising brain into gear to get their lil beauties sold. We got this. 

You may also see another fresh face on the scene too - he's called Dan. Like me, he's a creative and will be helping me on the YBFH journey. He makes splendid cards and prints and has a true love for big back print tees. He's going to be a vital part to this new world of business for us both and we can't wait to started!

Well done if you made it this far. If you want to ask me any questions or talk about pigeons, please feel free to email me on sally@ybfh.co.uk 💌

To round this off, I'd like to say thanks to all those small business owners and creators that have kindly allowed me to help share their products with the world - I couldn't of done it without you! Remember to shop small, and support independent businesses in every way you can 💞 peace out friends x
