Stockist Feature: For The Love OF The North

It goes without saying that I love the stores I work with to bring TSK's products to everyone around North East England. So I wanted to tell you all a little about our wonderful stockist For The Love Of The North.


FTLOTN was set up in 2017 by the lovely Lucy and Paul who are both keenly passionate about sharing the love for the North and representing local talent! What started as a website has grown into a beautiful shop at the iconic Spanish City in Whitley Bay, hugely popular with visitors and locals alike.

Even before I set up TSK, visiting FTLOTN was a joy! The wonderful array of fantastic arts and crafts showcasing our wonderful region and created by super-talented local creatives was inspiring, and was even a huge part in inspiring me to start the TSK journey! The shop is still always beautifully stocked with everything from unique greetings cards to wall art, kitchenware, home decor items, craft kits and more, not to mention the lovely staff who are always up for a natter. It is very VERY difficult to leave the shop empty handed!


FTLOTN was my very first stockist as TSK was just setting up in 2020 and have provided wonderful personal and business support ever since. I will forever be grateful to Lucy and Paul for taking a gamble on a brand new business, particularly during such a difficult time for retail! As I found my feet they were always helpful, supportive, encouraging and understanding.


I know they have big plans in the next couple of years and I'm so glad to be part of their journey!


Lovely words from Lucy and Paul themselves....


At For The love Of The North we are proud to work with some of the North East's most hugely talented creatives. Jennifer most definitely fits into this category. The stitch kits from the outset have been such a well thought out and put together product. During lockdown so many people embraced them as a way of doing something positive and creative and it's so easy to see why. The kits celebrate some of the North East's most iconic landmarks and a chance for people to unleash their creative streak. With clear instructions these gorgeously put together kits make amazing gifts all year round. It's been such a joy to see how popular the kits are and to support Jennifer's venture which really showcases the very best of the North East.
