Hello! A little blurb about how "The Shropshire Toyshop" began.......
My little shop began as a small market stall called "From Me To You xx" selling ethically sourced gifts and while sourcing my gifts I came across these talented artisans with their fabulous toys.
I was searching for a way to help children in need. When I came across an article about these talented artisans who made toys to help improve their lifestyle and the lives of their families, I felt that I wanted to do my bit.
The Shropshire Toyshop is an independent online shop selling ethical, natural, organic, eco-friendly and Fair Trade products all chosen from socially responsible companies who try to make a difference, everything has been ethically sourced, no child labour, no exploitation good working conditions and fair pay.
With the arrival of my Grandchildren it soon became apparent that I would start down another path- ethically made quality baby clothes, Organic cotton is not only softer against the delicate skin of baby, its hypo-allergenic and therefore unlikely to cause irritation or allergies, its better for the enviroment with no chemicals used, no GMO's and also better for the farmers and their families in the production.
Organic Cotton clothing can seem more expensive but its not in the long run as in its production it's 98% less polluting than normal production, which is brilliant for all of us but also the extra costs go towards investment in the fair treatment of people, in the help towards protecting our planet for future generations, organic cotton is also more durable so will last longer than normal cotton due to the fact that it's not been treated or bleached.
Soft, Gentle and Pure perfect for my Grandchildren.
So welcome to my little shop!
