About The Very Small Company
The Very Small Company is an independent micro business, run by a real person, and offering good old-fashioned service. My customers are very important to me, and I take pride in providing excellent customer service.
What do I sell?
Based in Derbyshire (UK) but shipping internationally, my online shop sells lots of my favourite things.
These include beads and jewellery-making supplies (including beautiful Fair Trade Karen Hill Tribe Silver), craft supplies (buttons, Injabulo buttons,ribbons, trims, bells, Tando Creative chipboard shapes, country craft supplies etc) and creative textile supplies (such as threads, fibres, inspiration packs, felting supplies, knitting needles).
As well as selling supplies, I make and sell handmade jewellery (some styles include my handmade lampwork beads), and handmade gifts. I generally sell these at craft and gift fairs, but if you would like an item making in a particular colour scheme please contact me.
As a keen crafter myself, I appreciate that sometimes you only want a few of something to complete a project, so my philosophy includes selling things in very small quantities.
Flexibility is key, so where possible, I also offer larger packs to give you more choice - but if you can't see a pack size that suits your needs, just drop me a line - I may be able to help (though I cannot supply wholesale quantities).
Stay in touch
I have over 1000 products on the site, with new goodies arriving regularly, so it's worth staying in touch and popping back regularly.
I also love to hear from you with feedback, or suggestions for additional products.
