Hello! Thank you for visiting In The Post.
Advocates of #ShopSmall
A significant part of our Instagram journey has been connecting with and promoting various small businesses we've found through Instagram or Etsy. We have a passion for businesses who do good, and have energy and enthusiasm bursting through the tiny squares of their feeds. Over the course of a year, we've connected with so many independent sellers, creating beautiful handmade gifts (whether that be for yourself or a loved on). We also have a few family members in the small business world - and we couldn't advocate more the #supportsmall approach to shopping.
"If you're going to buy a gift for someone you care about - you want it to come from a home, a family and an independent community of makers and creators sharing their passions"
In the Post was born through a love for small businesses. A desire to promote the people we connect with, and showcase their products in a beautifully packaged letterbox gift. We want to curate our favourite items - ones we know we would buy - and give others the opportunity to send these to a friend or to treat themselves while shopping small.
In The Post delivers letterbox gifts, curated by us with items from small businesses in the UK. As we found our love for small businesses through our account The Ellesmere Home, we decided to call our first curated letterbox box 'The Ellesmere Box'. This box includes items from six small businesses, and is our 'once it's gone, it's gone!' box. Head to our letterbox gift page to shop our range of boxes, or read about our packaging and support small focus.
We hope you enjoy getting to know us and the various small businesses we work with. And we hope to get to know you too!
We are Amber and Dan, and we run an Instagram account called The Ellesmere Home. We started this account in June 2020 in lockdown after moving into our first home together and discovering a love for home décor. Our Instagram account developed overtime into our own lifestyle blog, where we share our daily lives (including lots of dog and food pics!) and also things which matter most to us such as self-care, body positivity, mental health awareness, and small businesses in the UK.
You can learn more about us on our second blog post 'Meet The Team' - the team is just us, or us and our little King Charles, Emmy, if you count her contribution to greeting the postie each day!
