Brands We Love: Niche Brands Found on 20 Best Twenty
If you’ve been following the Chalkboard China brand for years, you know we’re always on the hunt for unique designers and discovering those talented creators harboring a true talent and passion for what they do. And once we find those must-know-about talents, we share them with all of our friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers — you name it, we’ve shared it.
You often can’t find these types of artists and designers at big retailers, which do carry some great products but many miss out on that local jewelry designer who creates beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces or that talented artist hanging portraits for sale in the nearby coffee shop. There are many independent designers out there that get overlooked and at Chalkboard China, we truly love taking the time to find them and spread the word.
And that’s exactly why we adore 20 Best Twenty.
The goal of 20 Best Twenty is to take these local and international independent makers, sellers, designers and boutiques and have one place in which everyone who “appreciates the fine tuning of above average ideas” can find them, which is 20best20.com. They state themselves that their “goal is simple – to feature the undiscovered items that are often lost in an age of chain retailers and commercial advertising.” And that’s why we’re already cheering loudly for 20 Best Twenty!
Aside from their celebrated mission, the fun side of the contributors to 20 Best Twenty comes out via social media and blogging.
