La Boutique du Coin, Vallière

I am part of a co-operative of artists, creators and producers, who run a small shop in the village of Vallière, in La Creuse. Set up and operated by the Mairie (the town council), the boutique is staffed by the artists and producers themselves. The shop doesn’t charge commision on what it sells (there was just a small fee to join the association) so the money you spend there goes straight to the artist/creator/producer.

Spotlight on Isabelle Nigel

Today Felt.Buzz is shining his spotlight on Isabelle Nigel

Isabelle Nigel is an Etsy shop run by Isabelle Monge. Isabelle lives in France. She has been making cute little figurines for years, for friends and in March 2014 she opened her Etsy shop to sell to a wider audience. As well as angels, and other figurines, she makes bookmarks, cards and other things too – check them out!

Every item is one of a kind, sewn and embroidered by hand ; the designs are her own and everything is made in a smoke-free, pet-free home, with quality material – including some lovely vintage French lace.

Isobelle has a huge following on Etsy, probably because she is such a lovely person! She is generous with her interactions with other shop owners. This has extended to Twitter and Facebook. I highly recommend you follow her and like her page: she shares other peoples posts on her personal and business page.

Disclaimer: this review has been not been requested or paid for in anyway: I wrote it just because I like Isobelle’s shop and her interactions on Facebook and Twitter.
