      Good luck to all the independent businesses opening their doors again tomorrow, our streets wouldn’t be the same without you! A littleGood luck to all the independent businesses opening their doors again tomorrow, our streets wouldn’t be the same without you! A little display I collaborated on with @thelittlebookshopleedskids @popupandplayco

      Posted @withregram@thelittlebookshopleedskids We’re ready for tomorrow and have beautiful new window display to welcome you back to the shop. We’ve loved @olivia.holden ‘s work for a long time and she’s always been a big supporter of us. When we heard she was going to illustrate a new book in one of our favourite book series, @quartokids by @mariaisabelsanchezvegara Little People Big Dreams we couldn’t have been more excited. These books encompass everything we’ve tried to achieve with our shop: inclusivity, diversity and dreaming big. A huge thanks to Olivia for the work she put into our window display and we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! 👋
