#StationeryShopSaturday – Spotlight Stationery Giveaway

One of the best things that I can do with this blog is to support small businesses. There’s nothing quite like supporting others to reach their dreams. It seemed only apt for #StationeryShopSaturday to spend a moment to share my love for small businesses and to do a giveaway, to help support them. This giveaway is coming out of my own pocket. It’s a thank you to my readers whilst also supporting a small business grow a little. Spotlight Stationery is one of those.

Small businesses are so great. When you support one, the money is going to help the company grow. You are helping the owner achieve their dreams. I have recently just placed an order for my own small business, which will be launching soon. I have not even started it yet and I already put in a lot of hours and work into creating the business. The support of customers, other bloggers, and other businesses would mean the world to me. And since I am a believer in treating people the way I would want to be treated, I wanted to take support a business that means a lot to me.

Spotlight Stationery logoAs you may already know, I had a really rough time last year. I’ve mentioned this before and quite openly talk about it. However, every physical situation that happened had an impact on my mental health, which made it worse. I had the support of friends and family, which got me through it. But one thing that I noticed was the support of a few amazing brands and people I have never even met. One of these people was the owner of Spotlight Stationery, who I interviewed and featured a few years back. Last year, even though I was barely blogging or on social media, she would share a link to my blog. And that meant more to me than I could ever tell her.

When you feel entirely alone and useless, there’s something incredibly powerful about seeing someone you don’t know support you and your dreams. I cannot thank Spotlight Stationery enough for their support in my darkest hours. Whilst I can’t buy everything from her store, I thought I would do a giveaway today to help support the business. So without further ado, let’s talk about the prizes – because that’s a much cheery note!

Spotlight Stationery is also twinned with another company, called Stationery & Art. So the exact prize of this giveaway will come from either one of those companies – I am going to let the winner choose it!

PRIZE 1 – Spotlight Stationery box

If you haven’t already seen it, Spotlight Stationery sell a gorgeous box subscription. I genuinely wish I could subscribe to it every month because it always full of gorgeous products. For this prize, I will giveaway any previous box that is still in stock, up to the value of £25.

These boxes vary quite a bit. Since I could not pick which one to giveaway, I thought I would just offer the winner their choice. Personally, if I had to pick one… My favourites would be:

  1. “Black & Gold” box – I really adore any box that features a ‘Castelli’ notebook – because they are just brilliant. This black and gold themed box is very classy.
  2. “Tyger, Tyger” box – Simply because tigers are one of my favourite animals.
  3. “Journal” box – I often talk about I enjoy using a journal. So this box is great for anyone that also enjoys that habit or wants to start.

These are perhaps my top three but there are some fantastic boxes. The “All That Glitters” features a lovely Paperblanks notebook and I adore one of the postcards so much. The winner will be able to choose from any in-stock boxes and I’ll have it sent directly to them.

PRIZE 2 – Gift Certificate from Stationery & Art

If you’re not a fan of stationery boxes, you already have them all or you just want something different then the second option will be a gift certificate from Stationery & Art. You will get a £25 certificate, which will qualify you for free UK delivery, if you use it all in one go. This option allows you to customise your prize and pick whichever products you want.

Business Series: Spotlight Stationery

Spotlight Stationery Subscription BoxToday’s feature is a business that I’ve been following quite avidly on social media, called Spotlight Stationery.  They produce these incredibly well curated stationery subscription boxes, each featuring a range of gorgeous products.  I really love that they work with young illustrators, giving them the opportunity to be promoted and they source their products from a range of companies.  In fact, I’ve found out about several new products or brands simply by visiting their website.  Spotlight Stationery also stocks other products, such as notebook covers.  What I really like, however, is their gift sets.  All of them have been curated with a lot of thought and love.  With their luxurious feel, they would make an amazing gift for any special occasion!

One of the masterminds behind Spotlight Stationery is a lady whose passion for stationery is easily noticeable.  Mary was also a judge for the 2017 Stationery Awards, which speaks volumes for her credibility in the profession!  So without further ado, let’s jump into this Q&A with Mary herself.
