Today sees the start of Fairtrade fortnight, For this year's Fairtrade Fortnight you are asked to join us in The Big Swap. For two whole weeks we are asking you to swap your usual stuff for Fairtrade stuff. Your usual bananas for Fairtrade bananas, your usual cotton socks for Fairtrade cotton socks, and your usual cuppa for a Fairtrade cuppa.
You can find out more about the big swop at The Fairtrade Big Swop Website this is the home of all things swap, a hub for all your swapping needs. It tells you how to get involved, what you can swap and most importantly, how to register them. Because we need lots of swaps made. One million and one in fact. Every swap will be proof that the people of the UK want producers in the developing world to get a fairer deal.
Knot Just Jigs will be supporting the Fairtrade fortnight by offering free postage on ANY orders that contain one of our fair trade products, a free BIG SWOP sticker and if your order is over £20 you will also receive a FREE re-usable cotton bag You will find a huge range of lovely fair trade skipping ropes, jigsaws, play buildings, bookends, name plaques and wooden letters.

We are really pleased to have a new lovely range of wooden dummy chains and wooden clip in toys starting at a bargain price of only £4.99 !Made by Heimess these products are hand crafted using non-toxic materials and more importantly they are made from saliva resistant materials as we know what little ones are like for putting things in their mouth! The dummy chains are great way to stop baby dropping their comforter and either getting it dirty or even worse losing it! The clip on both products is strong enough to prevent it being pulled off but still safe enough not to snag clothes.
I am always in awe of all the lovely blogs that are out there (I know because I spend far too much time reading them!) so it was really great to hear that our blog had its first mention in the very first Business Mums Blog Carnival! (24/01/2010). Helen Lindop runs the site www.businessplusbaby.com and was the first to host the monthly Business Mum's Blog Carnival. As a business woman its always of great interest to read advice and tips from other enterprising mums and to read their blogs about them, their families and their businesses. Helen's site puts together advice and resources to help mums take that step to becoming a mumpreneur.
Each month, a different business mum blogger will be hosting the blog carnival, listing the best business mum blog posts of that month. If you’re a business mum with a blog, you can submit your own favourite post of that month to the carnival. Don't be shy fellow blogger's, enter your favourite blog post you never know you might get a mention!
A very warm welcome to my blog. I'm a work at home mum of 4 children and Nanny to 2 gorgeous grandaughters and a lovely grandson!
I launched my first website business www.knotjustjigs.co.uk at the end of January 2007 selling traditional, classic and nostalgic toys with the aim of rekindling childhood memories and bringing back all those toys you forgot existed!
