Welcome to In The Post
Welcome to #InThePost and our very first blog post. Get to know us and our small business, and the reasons we do what we do.
Get to know us
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!
Advocates of #SupportSmall
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 six months, 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.
The Ellesmere Box
In The Post delivers letterbox gifts, curated by us with items from UK small businesses. As we have found our love for small businesses through our account The Ellesmere Home, we have decided to call our first curated letterbox box 'The Ellesmere Box'.
Our first 'The Ellesmere Box' is filled with Amber's favourite things from small businesses we love. We are announcing all of the items over on our Instagram and Facebook - be sure to check them out and let us know if you like what's in the boxes.
So what next?
We are busy in the background preparing our beautiful letterbox gifts for launch day - Tuesday 16th March. Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for the latest updates!
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!
