A little late post.....Minor Goods founder Zoe recently caught up with Emma from A Quiet Style blog, it was really lovely to be featured on Emma's wonderful blog as we share a love of simple style, nature and well being. Zoe chatted with Emma on how a change in lifestyle influences the products she develops and curates for Minor Goods. To read the full interview and find out more about the inspirations behind Minor Goods take a look at A Quiet Style.
We came upon A Quiet Style on Instagram where Emma shares beautiful images of her daily life in Brighton with her family. We love Emma's autumnal shots styled with our Slow Brew Mug, Handmade Reusable Linen Filter and Tea Towel. Perfectly capturing those precious quiet moments and appreciating the everyday rituals.
A big thank you to Emma for her kind words and support of Minor Goods and small independent brands! Photographs from A Quiet Style on Instagram.
With the change in seasons and the darker nights, it is definitely time for some winter warming food. These beautiful shots are by Wallflower Kitchen of Aimee's delicious Maple Roasted Parsnip and Celeriac Soup. We love the moody vibe of these photos and you just want to dive right in to the comforting soup! All beautifully served and styled with our stoneware everyday bowls and dessert plates.
We first came across Aimee this time last year whilst searching the internet for a Coconut Treacle Toffee recipe, which by the way is amazing! It's made only with coconut ingredients but in fact tastes just like treacle toffee! Another perfect recipe for this time of year.
Wallflower Kitchen creates amazing vegan recipes, whether you are a vegan or not, and just food lovers like ourselves then we highly recommend taking a look at Aimee's blog for inspiration.
We are big fans of The Great British Bake off and as it's the final this week we have a baking (& bananas) themed post. The lovely Edd Kimber who was the winner of the first series has been enjoying wearing our unisex denim apron. Perfect for all bakers and makers with its simple design and big front pocket.
Edd has a fantastic You tube channel 'The Boy who Bakes' with handy baking tips, and delicious recipes. The one that caught our attention is his The best banana bread as we are always on the look out for banana based recipes (slightly hooked on bananas). Edd also has helpful instructions on how to quickly ripen bananas so you never have to wait to make banana bread! If you're as bananas about bananas as we are, then take a look, happy baking!
September has been an exciting press month for minor goods, a huge thank you to Gina from Fable Media who manages all our PR.

Summertime is all about lighter brighter flavours and it's now that the clean refreshing tastes of green tea or slow pour coffee really come into their own.

Our new minor goods are all about simple shapes and the minor details. Take a look!
