I’m pretty sure that buying a perfect birthday gift during lockdown can be a bit of a dilemma. However two clever mummies recently gifted their sons one of Trashcan Emporium’s cool lockdown Tees. One mummy picked one of Lee’s original skull images and added the lockdown location, name and age for her son and another mummy chose a “Corona Virus” Tee with their lockdown location for her son. Their boys have a pretty unique reminder of this crazy time and their lockdown birthday celebrations.
Thanks to both lovely ladies for supporting our little business in these tough times and a big happy, 17th and 11th, lockdown birthday to these blinkin’ gorgeous boys!
Creative ideas are us. We are always thinking of new things to encourage purchases from our little ‘arty farty’ business. We also love it when we get given some awesome ideas from others too.
A runner up in our recent music quiz based in the 30 Day Music Challenge came up with a stormer of an idea (or actually his wife did). He was offered a design of his own choice sublimated onto our gorgeous poly-cotton Tees and chose to have a the treasured ticket from one of his top music gigs as the design.
Why put your treasured gig tickets in a drawer when you can put them on your TShirt?
‘Ticket on a Tee’ is a service available right now!
So a lovely friend of mine in our village wanted a lockdown Tee as a surprise birthday gift for her husband. She inspired me with the design and we worked on it together (maintaining social distancing of course!). The final design was gifted to the birthday boy and soon a few spin offs, for an anniversary present for my neighbour and a topical Tee for The Husband, followed.
We can make these to order – changing location of lockdown as well as your personal wording … £15 per TShirt – and if it’s a gift then we can post to your recipient together with your personal message on a gift card – just drop us a message to order!
The “Arty Farty design your own TShirt” advertised on AirBnB as an experience is definitely the most popular thing to do in The ThreadShed. Each TShirt that leaves the ThreadShed is unique and is a wonderful reflection of the personality and character of the designer.
Recently two fabulous holidaymakers visiting the area came with their own pretty clear design ideas and it was great fun working with them both and watching their ideas evolve. Their final happy designs of a cookie monster bursting through a big cookie and a pink unicorn dead lifting giant balls of rainbow wool brought some smiles and will be a very unique reminder of their holiday in Wales.
Had a great morning in the ThreadShed with a young man down from England scouting the area for schools and houses with his Mam. He had wanted to head back home first thing but Mam had already booked him a design your own TShirt experience at The ThreadShed. Nevertheless he soon got stuck right into the creative process and incorporated all his great ideas into a very unique and personal TShirt.
Best of all he told me that he had arrived angry but left happy! Absolute result!
I’ve just spent a glorious couple of days walking a teeny bit of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal path with my Bestie and my God-Daughter! On their last night in glorious South West Wales we took a glass of wine into The ThreadShed and created some pretty cool T-shirts. Their design choices were penguins galore for my God-Daughter and a little tribute to 1970s band Sweet for my glam rock loving Bestie! I absolutely love sharing my gorgeous pink ThreadShed with my customers but sharing it with important people was pretty special! (In fact it was a bit of a Blockbuster!!!😄❤️)
It’s so sweet when loved up couples choose a visit to the ThreadShed Fresh East to celebrate something special. I’ve hosted a few couples celebrating their anniversary and this fabulous couple came along to celebrate their one year anniversary … their designs were very different but each left with a T-shirt they were proud of! Many congratulations to them and I hope they come back and celebrate year 2 with me too ❤️
Well I’ve been having a pretty fun time in The ThreadShed over the holidays with lots of lovely visitors getting all arty farty …
First up was the very lovely Emily who enjoyed designing a cute tee for her little sister…
And just as Emily was leaving this gorgeous pair of holiday-makers arrived. They were visiting the area with their mummy and daddy, who very gratefully snuck off for a scrummy lunch, at our fabulous village pub, the Freshwater Inn, whilst the children enjoyed being T-shirt designers …
Both sets of visitors wrote in my brand new “Leave Me a Beautiful Message” book! I must remember to ask all my customers to do this because, after all, life needs to be filled with beautiful messages don’t you think?
