What’s Hot in Earlybird, Stoke Newington?

Ever inventive with ways of pulling her local retail community together – from the Windows of Hope campaign (https://www.pgbuzz.net/earlybird-opens-the-window-of-hope-among-the-card-retailers-community/)

to spearheading a wonderful collaborative film (https://www.pgbuzz.net/earlybirds-heidi-early-spearheads-film-that-brings-her-local-high-street-together-for-reopening/) to celebrate the be reopening, Heidi Early, co-owner of Earlybird in Stoke Newington also absolutely loves the shop she co-owns with her husband Dom. While he spends the majority of his time on their card publishing business, Heidi is more involved on the retail side. Here she shares some the north London store’s best sellers…
