A look at the Not on the High Street website!

Mar 20

We love being “Not on the High Street”

One of our favourite sites (EVER!) is notonthehighstreet.com.  If you have never heard of it prepare yourself for a new addiction! Not on the High Street is the love child of award winning entrepreneurs Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish, that was set up from their kitchen table in 2006. Since then, their team has exploded from two girls to over 120 people, and as a result they’ve outgrown four offices.

A peek at the website!

Not on the High Street is on of the UK’s fastest growing e-commerce business’s and it’s easy to see why from looking at their website.  Their goal is to deliver original creative products to their customers and to give small craft businesses a platform to sell their goods.  The vast range of personalised and handmade products is to be admired  (and purchased!).

These can all be personalised on notonthehighstreet.com – We LOVE!

If the collection of goods on notonthehighstreet.com isn’t big enough, their trophy cabinet is ENORMOUS.  Holly and Sophie have accomplished a long list of awards, including winning First Women Awards: Retail and Consumer which celebrates pioneering businesswoman and ‘glass ceiling’ breakers.

Holly and Sophie with one of their many awards!

And if your collection of artysmarty jewellery is getting out of control, they have to most beautiful collection of jewellery boxes from multiple designers that will be sure to keep them neat!

Is that an Artysmarty ring there? Gosh!

Our New Spot – Kilkenny

We are so excited here at artysmarty to call Kilkenny our new haunt!  Kilkenny is currently celebrating its fiftieth anniversary of being one of the lifelines for Irish Craft and artist.  Under the reign of sisters Marian O’Gorman and Bernadette Kelleher the sophisticated shops pride itself on stocking only the highest quality products.

Kilkenny’s history and great reputation with Irish and international markets has resulted in a priceless knowledge of the Irish craft and design industry.  Although Kilkenny stocks mostly Irish goods, they also stock a small range of international brands, so there’s something for everyone!

Our favorites are the beautiful stamped pottery of Nicholas Moss, we’ve been know to step out in the dresses of Caroline Kilkenny  and the stylish jewellery pieces of Maureen Lynch.

There are over eighty designers that supply the Kilkenny stores offering a something totally different from the high street stores, for instance renowned designers such as the designers Orla Kiely, Alan Ardiff, Saba (Geraldine Murphy) and Irish interior design brand Klickity can be bought at any of their eleven stores.

With stores situated in most corners of Ireland, from Dublin to Galway and Cork to Kildare, there’s sure to be one near you!  Check out their Dublin city center store at:  

6-15 Nassau Street Dublin 2
