Recycled Annuals & Board Games- Utter Geek Chic!


Wow, have I got a belter for you today. I love a bit of nostalgia and a trip down memory lane. So, you can imagine my excitement when I came across Ellie Ellie who sources second-hand items, re-designs them and turns them into something new and very,very cool.

Ellie Ellie brings you Geek Chic at its very best, created in Brighton by Kingston's School Of Fashion graduate Danielle Ellen Plowman. Inspired by the love of all things vintage along with a passion for re-cycling, Ellie Ellie explores concepts of sustainable living within her quirky jewellery, accessory, home ware and gift design, suitable for everyone.


You are gonna love it!
