Some wise words from Jane Austen who was born #onthisday in 1775.

“Men make the moral code and they expect women to accept it. They have decided that it is entirely right and proper for men to fight for their liberties and their rights, but that it is not right and proper for women to fight for theirs.” - Emmeline Pankhurst, My Own Story

Today, 100 years since (some) women in the UK first voted in a general election, a statue of Emmeline Pankhurst will be unveiled in Manchester 🙌💜💚

Forever wishing I was back in Hay-on-Wye...
This the ‘Honesty Bookshop’ that lies in the courtyard of the castle, bursting with books in the late autumn sunlight #whpnaturallight #honestybookshop

P.S I hid one of our enamel pins among these books - I don’t know if anyone ever found it but it makes me happy to imagine they did 😊

Happy #smallbusinesssaturday (or small business #caturday as I think you’ll find that cats are the real bosses behind many small businesses 😼)! Thank you for keeping me and Oscar so busy. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who has shopped, shared, reviewed, commented or supported our business in any way❤️

Our Jane Eyre Birdcage necklace was one the earliest products I came up with back in 2012 and I remember the first Christmas as a business owner frantically packing thousands of these and wondering how on earth I was going to cope with it all.

Six years later the business has evolved (I have help, thank goodness!), and other products have taken precedence, but I don’t think I can ever stop selling this necklace as Literary Emporium would never have got to this stage without it.

Despite the waning popularity of this necklace (let’s face it, your bestseller is not going to be your bestseller forever) your appetite for this Jane Eyre quote is still strong, so instead of making thousands of Jane Eyre necklaces, we’re packing thousands of Jane Eyre pins. Let me tell you that the pins orders are a damn sight easier to fulfil so I’m thankful for this shift in product popularity!

Thanks so much for sticking by me! ❤️
