Top Picks - Vicky
Behind this lovely shop is a team of individuals striving for you to have a wonderful shopping experience, filled with delights that are not only beautiful and high quality but also ethically sourced.
Meet Vicky - the owner of Just Add Milk. Mother of four Vicky has always dreamt of owning a shop, and her dreams came true in October 2018 when Just Add Milk came to life. Vicky is passionate about supporting the dream's of others as she builds her own, and everything she stocks is from independent traders. There is a delightful mix of British brands, alongside Fairtrade items from further-afield, and here Vicky outlines some of her favourite items here at Just Add Milk.
Fiona Walker Animal Heads and Hooks
"When my daughter was little, I had animal posters on her bedroom walls. She showed interest in them from a young age and would gaze at them, as she grew we would give them names and tell stories about them. The animal heads remind me so much of that and I think they go way beyond being a beautiful statement piece; they are great for language development and bonding too. My particular favourite are the bunnies. I absolutely love Fiona Walker as a brand too and the ethical practices they follow."
The Fiona Walker range is great for creating a fun, unique space in your nursery, bedroom or playroom. Each animal head and hook is lovingly handmade under Fair Trade guidelines, and are so easy to hang with the bamboo hook attached to the back.
Albetta New Baby Clothes, Rattles and Matching Booties
"This range make such lovely gifts for new babies. Their quality is exceptional and they are super soft."
Albetta is a family business started by Annabel in 1998 when she was looking for clothes for her two demanding toddlers in Saigon, Vietnam. Inspired by Vietnamese handicraft skills she decided to make her own babywear collection for the UK gift market. 20 years later the Albetta collection has expanded to daywear, shoes and toys and accessories and is now sold in top retail outlets round the world. Annabel’s designs have been inspired by her 4 children but also by mums and dads who want fun and unique clothes for their children but clothes that are also safe and practical which will last longer than the next wash. We adore all their items, like this gorgeous Lion Outfit, that also has matching crochet rattle and booties available.
Pehr Nursery Items
"These are so gorgeous and go so well in a contemporary nursery or bedroom. They are really high quality, and people always comment on this and how soft the Pehr range is."
Pehr is a female-founded, female-led company. All of their products are 100% organic and they actively work to reduce their footprint by eliminating single-use packaging and identifying more sustainable manufacturing processes. We particularly love this Noah's Ark s hand-screen printed reversible playmat.
Safari Quilted Playmat
"These are so versatile. They can be used as a playmat, pram blanket, or even a bedthrow on toddler and single beds when the time comes."
Our Safari Quilted Playmats are ethically made in India using traditional organic fabrics. The outer fabric is a double layer of organic cloth, making it super soft and polyfill makes it machine washable for convenience. High contrast graphics make it ideal as a playmat, and the reversible two-sided pattern keeps it interesting for your baby.
