About

Oh Squirrel's ethos is simple - to provide fun, inclusive and unique products for all events.

I've always stitched and made things since being pretty small. When I was little I loved making things from offcuts of fabrics we'd buy at markets, which continued as I grew up. Oh Squirrel began from a love of using old things and the new to create products which make folk smile. From doing my first local handmade market in 2012, I realised there was a squirrel shaped gap in the market for tasteful handmade stationery and gifts, with a big nod to both nostalgia and a sense of humour.

Over time, I started to get busier, and orders came flooding in from further afield. In the Spring of 2013 I left my previous job in fashion to work on Oh Squirrel full time.

It was during this time I accidentally stumbled upon the huge gap in the market for tasteful and fun hen party accessories - over the past year the range has grown in size and popularity, and I'm so excited about what else is in store.

Every etsy order makes me smile, as do so many of the wonderful customers I have the pleasure of working with. Being self employed as a designer/craftsperson is the most incredible job, and I often pinch myself to remember that it's true.

Frequently asked questions

When can I receive a certain product by?

All leadtimes are mentioned in the description of each product - please bear in mind the time it takes to make it, and then the post time too. If you need your product sooner then please refer to the other questions and answers below.

I need something quickly - can you help?

Possibly! Please send a message explaining exactly what you'd like to order, along with specifics (fabric, wording etc) where appropriate. Very importantly, please ensure you let me know where you're based for shipping, and when you need it by.

Please await a reply and I will advise what's possible. The more information I have upfront, the quicker I can get back to you.

Do you offer wholesale?

On certain products this is available - please contact to discuss.

I want to order a few things - what's the easiest way to go about this?

Please send a message detailing what you'd like, along with any fabric/wording (where appropriate), where you're based for shipping, and when it is needed by. I will set up a special order with everything together.

Do you offer discounts?

I am a strong believer in 'first price, right price' rather than offering items at over inflated prices, and then offering lots of discounts. I have developed products at different price ranges to ensure they're inclusive, regardless of your budget.

So much care and effort goes into making these items, so I hope you understand that I can't offer big discounts.

Why should I choose Oh Squirrel items?

With over 4,000 etsy sales behind Oh Squirrel, and hundreds of returning customers, I know a thing of two about making a special product which will make you happy! The range of products has been developed over time, and everything is made with care and attention to detail.

With hen party products, I have handmade over 5,000 sashes (I still can't believe this...) which have gone all over the world. I am very proud of creating a unique product, which has made many Brides feel extra special on their Hen Party.
