Our Product of the Month!

This month, we couldn’t not feature our classic Denver Satchel as our product of the month! This bag has been a staple bestseller for months – we’ve posted off 3 over the past week to very happy customers, and it’s definitely a firm favourite with us!

When you think of a classic British satchel, you think of the Rowallan Denver Satchel. It’s beautifully brushed buffalo leather lends it a gorgeous vintage look, and just gets better with age! With the quirky double pockets on the front, and plenty of zipped pockets and compartments inside, it’s ideal for University and work – and will guarantee to take you straight back to your school days!

It has a robust adjustable leather strap, so it’s great for travelling. It fits notebook laptops, iPads, A4 pads and notebooks… you name it, you can squish it in the Denver! And with it’s press stud magnetic fastenings, it’s easy to use whether you’re searching for your train ticket or throwing your shopping in it.

Available for FREE UK delivery on our Rowallan of Scotland website (www.rowallan-retail.co.uk), and for a limited time only 10% OFF with offer code ‘hello’! What’s not to like?!

New Satchel Designs!

We’ve been putting our heads together here at Younique to come up with some amazing new product ideas for our customers in 2015. After a few sketches and a chat with our bespoke leather crafter, we can finally announce that we are working on a fabulous new take on the eco Tote Bag – The Satchel Tote! We know how popular the Tote bag is, and we think they’re great for popping to the shops with, and are a trendy sustainable way of protecting our environment from unnecessary plastic bags. So we’ve taken our favourite signature satchel style and applied it to the tote, making for a useful bag with a vintage twist. We’re currently mocking up our first prototype so we can perfect the design and get it out to you as soon as we can!

We’re also responding to a lot of customer requests to make a satchel backpack, and we’re finally getting a range together to add to our permanent stock. These satchel backpacks will of course be available in varying sizes, colours, and with a range of bespoke detailing. Whether you choose to design your own or purchase one of ours, we’re sure you’ll love our new range.

So keep watching this space for details about our 2015 product range. We can’t wait to see your reactions to them!

2015/01/img_1264.png

We’re very excited to be attending our very first Congleton ArtisanMarket on Sunday 11th January. Situated in the bustling town centre of Congleton, the market runs from 10am until 3pm, and promises to be a great day out for all the family.

Selling everything from homemade cake to fresh fruit and veg, Congleton Artisan Market runs on the second Sunday of each month throughout the year. It aims to promote local businesses and artisan crafts, and we can’t wait to be a part of it!

We’ll be there this Sunday, 11th Jan, with a great selection of our British designed leather satchels, as well as a great selection of stunning scarves, and our bespoke colourful Cambridge style satchels. We hope our satchels go down a treat in Congleton, please come down to have a look at what we have and support your local businesses!

Northwich Artisan Market

2015/01/img_1263.jpg

Welcome to our first market weekend of 2015! It’s set to be a blustery one, but that won’t stop us plying our wares tomorrow at Northwich Artisan. As it’s January and we know you all love a bargain, we’ll be bringing a range of our super stylish colourful dotty satchels – at only £25 a pop you won’t be able to resist these cute little bags. We’ll also be continuing our very popular scarf offer; £6 each, or two for a tenner! What better way to treat yourself on a blustery January day…

Northwich is always a bustling market for us, and we can’t wait to be setting up stall there again…. Oh how we’ve missed our regular take-out hot chocolates from Charlie’s cafe on Witton street, easily the yummiest hot chocolate in Cheshire!

See you there….

January Discount!

Here at YOUnique, we don’t really believe in the madness of January sales…. This is because we have total faith in the high quality of our beautiful leather products, and believe that our prices accurately reflect the workmanship and unique design that goes into creating them. Our stunning products don’t suddenly become cheaper on Boxing Day; we believe our satchels are suitable ALL year round, so we like to keep our prices consistent and our customers happy!

That said, we DO love to reward our customers, and we like to know that you can still treat yourselves to a little bit of luxury, even in the midst of those January blues!

So we’ve launched a cheeky little discount code on our website that can be used throughout January. Just quote ‘january’ when paying at the checkout of our website and you will receive 15% off your total order.

(A Belated) Happy New Year!

happy-new-year-2015-1920-1080-3088

A big Happy New Year to all our loyal followers and customers! We can’t thank you all enough for all your custom over the busy festive period, making our Christmas the most successful one to date! Not only did we have a great reception at both Manchester and Chester Christmas Markets, but we also had lots of happy customers returning to our regular Artisan and Makers Markets across the North West. We can’t tell you how happy we are that you chose to Christmas shop with us. Not only is it great to see so much support for local businesses, but we’ve had amazing feedback on our products and it’s great to hear about some very happy faces on Christmas morning.

Christmas 2014 was also our first year trading online, and this has gone down really well with our customers. At times we were so busy we were visiting the Post Office with piles of parcels twice a day! We’d like to thank you all for bearing with us at this extremely busy time, and glad to hear your parcels all arrived in time for the big day.

Summer 2014 was also a big learning curve for us, and we had a great time at some amazing agricultural shows across the country, and after lots of customer feedback we were able to launch our exciting new Bespoke Satchel Service at the end of Summer. This has gone from strength to strength over Christmas, and is something we’re going to concentrate on a little more as we head into 2015.

After a nice (well deserved) Christmas break, we’re spending the next month or so assessing our successes from last year, in order to bring you the best of YOUnique UK in 2015. Stay tuned for some exciting new developments, and of course to stay up to date with our latest events and products.

We wish you health and happiness for the New Year, and all the best with those resolutions…!

Jayne and Rebecca at YOUnique x
