Guest Post: Introducing The Ballet Bag Shop
Hello, we are Emilia and Linda from The Ballet Bag Shop. We started in 2009 as a dance website, sharing our love for this art form with a young, social media-loving audience.
One of the things we observed as our website grew and as we travelled places, networking with the dance world, was that ballet-themed gifts were ultra glitzy and cliché (think keychains featuring pink ballet shoes full of glitter and pom-poms!). So we launched our own shop last year and stocked it with stylish and cool accessories, all inspired by this beautiful art form: enamel pins and charms, greeting cards, embroidered patches, and sticker sheets.
We are still growing and testing new lines of products. As you will see, our current collections are inspired by popular stories like Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, which is so huge during Christmas. Winter is usually our busiest season as our customers look for original party favours, and we always have plenty of Nutcracker-themed goodies for their stockings and party bags. Our enamel pins also feature playful images like knitting needles, graceful swans, and chic tutus.
In the future, we would love to expand our range to feature goods inspired by operas, musicals and more. We design most of our items, or we collaborate with independent designers. We always fulfil each order personally, with lots of love. We will be very happy to have your feedback, and to help if there are any questions.
If you have an idea for a special enamel pin or stationery product that you would like, feel free to email us at [firstname.lastname@example.org] or DM us on Instagram [@theballetbag] with your suggestions. We’re always happy to chat and hope you enjoy our goodies.
With love from London & San Francisco,
Emilia & Linda
